A festive holiday smoothie that is packed with protein!
Helloooo everyone!! How was your Christmas?? Did you stuff your face full of all the most delicious treats like I did? Yup yup. It happened. Not even sad about it. In fact, I am actually kind of impressed at my ability to eat. Professional athletes would be shocked at my ability to consume food. Yes, I am that good.
Anyways, now that Christmas has passed it is time to get back to my normal routine of 80% healthy and 20% junk food. Today, I have a smoothie recipe for you guys that is 100% awesome. (<– DAD JOKE!!!! 😂🔫)
Cranberries, mandarin oranges, vanilla, Vega, and a whole lot of love went into this baby. My Cranberry Smoothie is the perfect festive power-drink for the holiday season.
We’ve talked about being hangry before and how it really is just not a cute look on anyone. (Especially me.) Well, I have teamed up with Vega to bring you another protein-packed smoothie that tastes delicious and will keep you full and satisfied. Best of all? Vega protein is entirely plant-based. (ß absolutely love this.)
Lets get to it:
- ½ cup frozen cranberries
- ¼ cup mixed frozen berries
- 5 peeled mandarin oranges (make sure they are seedless because it would taste like absolute crap if there were seeds in it.)
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 scoop Berry Vega Sport Performance Protein
- ½ cup ice cubes
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Step 1: Put stuff in blender.
Step 2: Blend. #science
I hope you guys appreciate those highly intricate step-by-step instructions I put above. 😉
The Vega Sport Performance Protein I put in this drink is so freakin’ good. It is a new product from the Vega team, and it has 30 grams of protein (10 more than Vega One) per serving! If you want to check out the other Vega smoothie recipes I have, click here and here.
Hope you all had a fun Christmas filled with family and friends! Now it is off to the Philippines for me! Stay tuned for travel tips, coming soon. 💋
