I am not a morning person, but my kids are. 6 AM hits and both kids are awake and happy and I am still trying to drag myself out of bed. I recently kicked my caffeine habit and I have been working toward a healthier lifestyle, so I wanted something that I could count on in the morning to give me energy, help perk me up a little bit and that didn’t take a long time to make. My go to has become this chocolate peanut butter banana shake. It has everything I need to chase my little ones around until lunchtime and the best part is that it is Vegan. Real whole food. It is easy to make and the ingredients are simple ones I have on hand.
You will need:
- A blender
- half a banana
- 1 tbs of peanut butter
- 3/4 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 scoop of Vega Essentials Chocolate Protein Powder
Slice your banana up into slices and then add everything to a blender, topping with the ice. Blend it until smooth.
When I am making smoothies I use Vega Essentials Protein Powder because it is made from whole food ingredients and has 20 grams of plant based protein per serving. It has 25 % of your daily intake of food based vitamins and minerals as well as fiber and Omega 3s. It is Non-GMO Project verified, gluten-free and made with no added sugar or artificial flavors and colors so when one of my little ones wants a sip of my shake, I can feel great about letting them have some. If you have any questions about Vega Essentials, you can reach out to the company here.
What kind of shake would you make with Vega Essentials?
