The Powers Pack Super Smoothie

Nutrient-dense Power Smoothie

Nutrient-dense Power Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to pack protein and other nutrients into a tasty beverage.

Their nutrient density makes them a great meal replacement or a snack and they are an easy way to increase your raw veggie consumption.

A protein smoothie is good post workout for muscle repair and as a meal replacement it can be a helpful tool in achieving weight loss.

When you make sure to include Protein, Fat and Fiber in a smoothie you’ll be including all the required ingredients for optimal fuel.

While smoothies can turn out differently each time we make them, most of us tend to keep to the same recipes.

Here is one of my favorites. This is one I often use after a workout which is generally around noon time so it often serves as lunch for me as well. This one is named after my sled dog team The Powers Pack because it’s packed with powerful ingredients and it keeps me satiated for a good long while.

The Powers Pack Super Smoothie

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk. (Check the label to make sure it contains no carrageenan. SILK is the brand I use.) Add more if too thick or add unsweetened coconut water.
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 2 kale leaves with stem removed
  • 1 carrot, chopped ahead in electric chopper
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 1 scoop protein powder. I use Sun Warrior Vanilla Protein Blend. It is a plant based protein powder with a complete Amino Acid Profile.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a blender.
    Garnish with cacao nibs, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds or pomegranate seeds.

    Enjoy!
