Three years ago, my husband and I started having a smoothie for breakfast every day. I love these because they fill me up and let me start my day fueled by plants. We found an amazing plant-based superfood powder that I love and use in almost all my baking recipes as well. It’s perfect for energy balls, pancakes, waffles, muffins, and ice cream for the kids. Plus, it packs in 15 superfoods, has a perfect score for protein digestibility, is a great glycogen replacement for after workouts, and it doesn’t hurt that MD Anderson Cancer Institute has used in a clinical study and is currently using the data and colleting more data on the use of it with cancer patients.
So, you can probably tell I’m slightly obsessed and will likely use this plant-based powder for the rest of my life. Here are some of my favorite smoothie recipes. I will post our favorite muffin recipe and energy ball recipe later this week. Stay tuned and I hope you too will be powered by plants in the morning.
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp natural peanut butter (this means no added sugar or hydrogenated oils. Just peanuts or peanuts and sea salt)
1-2 scoops chocolate plant-based powder (I use Juice Plus complete)
8-16 oz plant milk (8 oz and 1 scoop of powder for 1 person; 16 oz and 2 scoops of powder for two)
Place ingredients in order as listed into blender. Blend and enjoy.
