Greenest Vanilla “Milkshake” VeganShake!
Sometimes I can get a tad bit bored with just drinking green juices. Don’t get me wrong – I love them and will try to incorporate in my everyday diet but once in awhile, I get a hankering for something else….
If you remember in a previous post, I made this delicious vanilla veganshake. It’s a yummy treat but doesn’t offer a lot of healthy benefits as green blend or juice.
So I decided to mix the two up to create something just as delicious and nutritious. (I love how both words rhyme by the way.)
This is a great mid day snack, morning breakfast and especially after a workout or heavy activity because of the added brown rice protein powder.
What you’ll need:
1 cup of organic unsweetened coconut milk (I haven’t tried it with the canned full fat though so getting the light version or watered down one reduces the calories)
2 handfuls of organic baby spinach
1 and a half tablespoons of pure almond butter (almonds should be the only ingredient)
2 tablespoons of organic vanilla extract
1 scoop of sprouted brown rice protein powder (vanilla or unflavoured)
1 cup of ice
Combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth! Drink right away. 🙂 Makes about 2 servings.
