I like to make my smoothies NAKED
Have you tried this juice? As far as juices go it’s pretty complete. They label it a juice smoothie so you can drink it as is but if you have a Vitamix and add a few extras it’s perfect! It has a high percentage of fruit mixed with all the power greens including garlic & ginger for good measure. 140 calories per 8 fl. oz. so it’s not without calories. Also has plenty of vitamins but no fibre – although you can add fibre to it. It has naturally occurring sugars (from the fruit) but that’s what gives you the energy boost. It’s perfect right after a run, workout or for a pick-me-up. I love trying out new healthy smoothie recipes that are simple to make. Here, half the work is already done for you in one bottle.
My own concoction for a quick ‘n delicious Energy Smoothie for two:
NAKED (Green Machine)
FROZEN MANGO CHUNKS
SCOOP OF* PROTEIN POWDER
SCOOP OF *FIBRE
FILTERED WATER (adjust to desired consistency)
Start with 1 cup each of the juices, add 1 cup of mango and go from there. *I use Brad King’s Ultimate Vegan FibreLean and Ultimate Vegan Protein Powder. I also added a couple scoops of Vitamin C with L-Lysine (Medi-C Plus) for additional anti-sickness protection.
Not bad right?
