One of the major staples of my diet, especially in the summer, is green smoothies. I used to be very skeptical of these because I thought they’d be completely nasty, but I have to say they’ve been such a positive change in my diet. To me, Sun Warrior Vanilla Protein is delicious and improves the texture so much. My gentlemen friend is a fan of Vega Chocolate. I add greens to every smoothie because I figure it would be difficult to eat that much spinach on its own, and supposedly it’s easier to digest blended up. Some people object to smoothies because they’re ‘pure sugar,’ but I find that coupling them with greens and a healthy source of protein is amazing fuel for my yoga practice, work, or just a long day ahead.
In the Mix:
-Frozen mixed berries/frozen blueberries
Adjust the amounts of each ingredient to achieve the taste/texture that you like. If you’re not used to greens and the idea makes you cringe, just add a tiny bit at a time. After a couple smoothies add some more, and so on and so forth. You will be a green smoothie master in no time!

One drawback of this magical stuff is that it’s a little spendy. I look for it on sale and on amazon.
Love my smoothies, how do you fuel?
