I was not feeling well this weekend so I took a nap and before I knew it, I slept through lunch. When I woke up I was starving! Knowing I had a history of making "bad" food choices when I'm hungry, the first thing I did was prepare a healthy smoothie so I could grab hold of the hunger then make a smart meal choice with a clear mind. I do believe the old habits are officially out of here!
My smoothie of choice? A banana, almond milk smoothie with a scoop of vegan protein powder.
Because smoothies and juices are part of the secret to my success, I can't keep this yummy healthy treat to myself, the recipe is below. Its a great snack or meal replacement, I often enjoy one of these for breakfast or as an after workout boost. Give it a try the next time you want a delicious and satisfying treat!
Banana almond milk smoothie recipe:
1 ripe banana
6oz of unsweetened almond milk
dash of organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
1/2 scoop of Plant Fusion (unflavored) plant based protein powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar.
Blend and enjoy!
