We have been posting a number of delicious and energizing smoothie recipes on our Facebook page over the past couple of months and thought it high time we consolidate some of them in one place for our fans!

Vanilla, Chocolate & Unflavored

Our plant protein shake with Life’s DHA, True Vitality, is becoming increasingly popular with our customers because, 1) they love the smooth, creamy taste in flavors vanilla, chocolate or unflavored, and 2) It meets their criteria as it contains vegetarian protein, omega-3s, probiotics, enzymes, carbohydrates, greens, fiber and 100% of the RDA of the essential daily vitamins.  The ingredients were scientifically formulated to work synergistically to enhance protein digestion, promote healthy digestive flora, as well as support brain, eye, heart, and nervous system function.  It’s works as a wonderful meal supplement in shakes and smoothies!

In any of the recipes below, feel free to substitute water for the almond or coconut milk.  We find that almond and coconut milk give added texture and creaminess to our smoothies which is why they are preferred, but to each his or her own palate! Almond milk has approximately 40 calories, 3g of fat and 2g of carbs per 8oz serving.  Coconut milk has approximately 50 calories, 5g of fat and 1g of carbs per 8oz serving.

Blend each to a froth and add ice to your chilling preference.  Enjoy!
