Green Smoothie Recipe

By Neal Barnard.

I often turn to smoothies with added protein powder as a way to squeeze a bit more protein into my diet especially for breakfast or post-workout.  Typically, I favor an almond milk with chocolate whey protein powder base.  However, this time of year our garden is booming, and the lettuce, spinach and kale is plentiful.  So, I decided to try my hand at a green protein smoothie.  It turned out quite tasty and the recipe follows below:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

½ scoop vanilla casein protein

¼ cup frozen pineapple

¼ cup frozen mango

¼ teaspoon minced ginger

¼ avocado diced

1cup frozen mix kale, lettuce, spinach

Blend on high, then enjoy!

I bought fresh pineapple and mango then diced and froze in advance.  I also picked the garden greens and froze in advance.  This smoothie turned out to be a nice, thick, fruity protein treat with just a touch of kick thanks to that ginger!  Overall, a delicious way to get in some additional protein!
