Piña Colada Smoothie

It's five o'clock somewhere right? Although this Pina Colada recipe does not call for alcohol coconut vodka does add a nice punch! 

Virgin or spiked, it's a great treat to get some nutrients in.  Now, just close your eyes and imagine the hot sun on your face and your toes in the sand...

Protein Power House (my everyday smoothie)

Protein-Smoothie.jpg

This is my go-to smoothie recipe that I eat most days.  I've added all of the items I'd like to have for a meal with a few berries and stevia for flavour.  I often make my own hemp milk with this smoothie although you can use just about any milk alternative.  

There are many milk alternatives available, and of them, I least prefer soy milks.  They are very high in estrogen and can negatively effect hormones for both men and women.  I have experimented with soy in the past and have found it to interrupt both my mood and menstrual cycle.  Powerful stuff!  Please do your research and know that there are many (in my option, safer) alternatives to soy.

Protein Power House (my everyday smoothie)

ingredients:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add hemp seeds and water to a high powered blender.  Mix till the water is frothy and milky.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients (except the protein powder) and blend well. 
  3. Blend the protein powder for a few seconds.  Some protein powders will become frothy and expand a lot when mixed to much which is why I add it last for only a few seconds. 

notes

*Nutritional values will vary depending on which protein powder you use.
