Yay For Smoothies!

Yummy Smoothie Recipes

Over the past couple weeks the people I am coaching along with a couple friends have been really working on nutrition.  Throughout this I realized how hard it is to find a tasty, well rounded smoothie recipe.

In today’s society everything is so fast paced that it is almost impossible to get a good breakfast or get that protein in meal form post workout within 30 minutes.  For me smoothies have solved this problem for me! I have talked to a couple really great nutritionists and came up with some pretty great smoothie recipes that i thought i’d share!  I know each person has a personal preference on protein powder and fruits but here are a couple options that I think are really great.

Here are my three favourite recipes.  I usually do the first one because I LOVE pineapple but occasionally I will switch it up. All you do is put these ingredients in the blender and its ready in seconds!

Option 1: Mango Pineapple Smoothie
1 handful of Super food Greens (Kale, Arugula, Spinach) *You can get this at any grocery store
½ Banana
½ Avocado
1 tbsp of Coconut Oil
1 tbsp seed mix (flax seed, chia seed and hemp seed) *I make the mix myself and just store it in a Tupperware container
½ cup of frozen Mango
½ cup frozen pineapple
1 ½ cups of coconut water *more depending on the thickness you want
1 scoop of Vega Coconut Almond Protein Powder  (All in one)
4 drops of Vitamin D (1000mg per drop)
Option 2:  Chocolate Banana
1 handful of Super food Greens (Kale, Arugula, Spinach) *You can get this at any grocery store
1 Frozen Banana
1 tbsp of Coconut Oil
1 tbsp of Original Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp seed mix (flax seed, chia seed and hemp seed) *I make the mix myself and just store it in a Tupperware container
1 scoop of Vega Chocolate Protein Powder (All in One)
1 ½ cups of coconut water *more depending on the thickness you want
4 drops of Vitamin D (1000mg per drop)
Option 3:  Vanilla Berry Smoothie
1 handful of Super food Greens (Kale, Arugula, Spinach) *You can get this at any grocery store
½ Avocado
1 tbsp of Coconut Oil
1 tbsp of Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp seed mix (flax seed, chia seed and hemp seed) *I make the mix myself and just store it in a Tupperware container
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1 ½ cups of coconut water * depending on the thickness you want
1 scoop of Vega Vanilla Protein Powder  (All in one)

If you have any good recipes send them my way! I usually have one or two smoothies a day based on my activities!
