Cold-pressed or centrifugal? Smoothies or shakes? Elixirs or tonics? These days, it’s hard to keep up on which potion we should be drinking. To simplify things, we rely on this fresh green smoothie that’s the perfect antidote for the how-to-get-my-greens-in dilemma. Unlike other plant-based shakes, this one has vegan protein—which makes it the perfect post-workout drink when muscles are in need of replenishment (tip: swap out berries for your favorite seasonal fruit, or water for almond milk).
- 1-2 scoops of vegan protein powder like SunWarrior Protein
- 2 cups of water
- 1 cup of fresh kale or spinach
- ½ ripe banana, frozen
- 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
- Optional: 1 cup of fresh or frozen berries
- Blend in a Vitamix or high-speed blender. Drink immediately.
