After spending the weekend at my father’s home–cooking, care-giving and working around
around the house, I realized that I would have to make a nutritious “smoothie meal” out
out of whatever I could scrounge up in my kitchen.
Lucky for me, I found the necessary fruit, greens, healthy fats and superfoods to create
enough protein-packed smoothie for two substantial meals!
Hemp hearts, chia seeds and peanut butter boost the plant-based protein power.
Adding avocado, hemp, chia seeds and flaxseed provides Omega-3 fatty acids and other
The inclusion of healthy fats from avocado and peanut butter also helps to make this smoothie
even tastier and creamier!
Kale and organic green powder provides lots of vitamins and antioxidants.
This recipe made a blender full of goodness so I poured the finished smoothie into two mason jars.
I drank one jar for lunch and refrigerated the other one for a mid-afternoon snack.
