What do smoothies and St. Patrick’s Day have in common? Why everything!!
*We received complementary product from Vega for use in this post. All opinions are our own.*
As a Mom, one of the most important things that I feel I need to do is teach my kids to eat healthy. Sometimes that is easier than others! When I found out about Vega, which is a plant-based natural protein powder that is flavored, I knew I had to learn more!
Since St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, why not celebrate it with a Shamrock Shake? Check out the recipe below for a yummy smoothie!
Made with a full avocado (for green coloring!), in addition to mint extract and a cup of cacao nibs, this healthy recipe will fulfill your craving for a Shamrock Shake. The cacao nibs are full of antioxidants, and a scoop of French Vanilla Vega One offers 20 grams of protein in one serving.
Another one you can try is this one:
Get your daily veggie fix with this nutrient-dense green smoothie. Whip up this low calorie option made with melon, cucumber, and spinach, which are all high in water and make this smoothie an extra hydrating way to start your day. This recipe also includes Vega One so you also get your daily protein fix early on in the day.
Since I couldn’t find the Cacao Nibs, we decided to try the Simple Tropical Smoothie! I used the Vanilla Vega powder that we received and I found frozen fruit (that included papaya) at our local store. I keep frozen spinach on hand so that is why you will see more of the bits of the spinach in my photo. This is the most delicious smoothie ever! Fruity, fresh and it’s good for you! My kids love this smoothie so I will be making it a lot more! One scoop of the Vega Protein & Green, offers 20 grams of complete plant-based protein! AND two servings of green! What better way to get your kids the nutrition they need! It is so delicious that they won’t realize that it is actually GOOD for them!
To learn more about Vega, you can go to their website to learn more. I did find that our Target carries Vega items! One more reason to shop at Target!
