Need A Pick Me Up? Have A Smoothie!
Smoothies are a great choice for a snack or even meal replacement because they're actually really filling in your stomach and you easily get tons of nutrients. However, skip Smoothie King and make them yourself. The problem with a lot of fast food smoothie chains is that you don't know everything they include in their drinks ie. excess sugar and other hidden additives. So, that said, save some money and go the homemade route. And fret not because you don't need a fancy blender to make that happen. Check out a dandy recipe we found for a creamy banana raspberry smoothie:
1 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons Standard Process Non-Dairy Protein Powder
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons sunflower butter
Feel freek to tweak as you see fit. If you don't have sunflower butter then don't use it or maybe replace with something similar. Allergic to peanut butter? Fine. Use cashews or whatever you want. Get creative!
