Vega One Power Smoothie

Do you Vega?

I've been drinking Vega One as shake in the morning for a few months now and I have to tell you - it really has been one of those things that has changed my life. I love brekkie time, but I was beginning to be in a bit of a funk when it came to what to eat because what I was eating was not making me feel well. It wasn't giving me energy. I switched to an all fruit brekkie which made me feel amazing, but it wasn't sustaining me. I needed something more. I found Vega One and never looked back unless of course, I have my new favorite signature dish, The WAKE Bowl. Or... perhaps combine the two (AMAZINGNESS).

Vega One is 100% plant-based, vegan and gluten/soy free. It has a complete protein blend and balanced amino acid profile made up of of sprouted whole grain brown rise, pea, hemp and savi seed. Each serving provides 15 grams of protein as well as 3 servings of greens, vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, digestive enzymes and probiotics. Here is a complete list of ingredients.

Anyway, usually I have the shake with added chia seeds and almond milk, coconut water or water and then fruit along the side but I was super hungry and didn't feel like a salad for lunch so I threw all of this in the blender and viola! Vega Magic.

Vega One Power Smoothie 

1 banana
1 avocado
2 handfuls of spinach
3 T coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1 T raw honey
1 serving Vega One (I used French Vanilla)
1 serving liquid chlorella (about 18 drops)
~ 2 cups water (I didn't measure so use your best judgement for consistency)
Few ice cubes (this makes the spinach blend better)

Method

Throw in the blender and blend silly ;)

Makes one large green awesome smoothie.
