Fiber Packed Green Smoothie
I love using smoothies as a tool to help get in the necessary servings of fiber, healthy fats, and protein on a busy day when I'm on the go. This takes 5 minutes but is nutrient dense and so filling from the fats of the chia seeds, hemp seeds, and almond butter. And I promise it tastes better than it looks if you use a good protein powder.
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like this one from Garden of Life)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar free nut milk (I use almond milk)
1 tbsp almond butter (no sugar added)
1/3 banana, frozen
1 cube frozen spinach
2 cups kale, stemmed and chopped
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp hemp seeds, plus more to top
1 tsp cinnamon
handful of ice cubes, optional
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
