This smoothie is my latest addiction! I crave it every day and have been making it for breakfast, lunch or snack. It is especially yummy when the weather is hot and muggy.
Blueberry Banana Protein Smoothie with Hemp
-1 small pear
-1 cup banana, sliced (frozen)
-1/2 cup blueberries, frozen
-1 cup fresh spinach
-1 inch fresh ginger root (about 1 1/2 tbsp)
-4 tbsp Hemp protein powder (I use Navitas & Mary uses Progressive)
-1 cup Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
- Blend and serve.
I made a slightly sweeter version for my son by adding a teaspoon of maple syrup and eliminating the ginger root. He slurped up this smoothie faster than I could blend up a new batch. That is a compliment coming from my son who is typically reluctant to try my healthy recipes.
This is one of the recipes with which Mary and I have been experimenting recently. We hope to unveil soon this and more recipes in a “Fitness and Meal” plan for kickstarting your healthy living…and weight loss. Stay tuned for that program coming soon.
Eat well, get active, stay healthy.
