Luscious Raspberry Smoothie

Luscious Raspberry Smoothie

This is a favorite simple GO TO recipe of mine for a nourishing, detoxifying, hormone balancing, energy infusing, morning kick-start drink.  Honestly when I look at many smoothie recipes out there in the SMOOTH-ES-SPHERE, they simply have too much sugar and aren’t balanced in a way to give you sustained energy.

Fruit sugars STILL hit your blood stream and can give your insulin and cortisol (belly-fat hormone) a rise. I generally limit my fruit smoothies to low glycemic fruits like berries. I always add a vegan protein. I only use protein that is non-soy, non-whey, less than 5 grams sugar, added fiber, prebiotics + probiotics. I always add healthy fats like unsweetened coconut milk, nuts butters or avocado. Last but not least I add a really good fiber blend. I like a good blend of types of fibers because sometimes flax or chia can give me, well, bloat…

T.M.I? Sorry 😉

Stuff you’ll need:

1-2 scoops high quality non-soy, non-whey VEGAN protein Powder – I usually use Clean & Lean Vegan or Clean & Lean Paleo Protein 

1/2-3/4 cup frozen organic raspberries

1 TBSP organic almond butter or other nut butter, optional)

1 TBSP ground flax seed, chia seed, or I use this Clean & Lean Power Fiber

1 cup water (more or less)

ADD IN’S 1/4 Avocado, handful kale, high potency EPA/EFA purity tested fish oil

How to make it:

Blend all ingredients (except protein powder) in high speed blender (like Vitamix or Magic Bullet), until smooth, THEN add in protein powder for 15 seconds.
