Mango Almond Butter Vegan Protein Smoothie

IMG_5927Start the day with mango almond butter vegan protein smoothie!

As someone who is always on the go, a fulfilling breakfast is very important to me. During the week, it is easy to let breakfast fall on low of your priority list but taking just a few minutes to have something to eat can really make a difference in your day. Let’s face it, you are not you when you are hungry so you better fuel your body before you head out the door.

Breakfast provides many benefits to our health and wellbeing. Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast foods are a good source of important nutrients, protein, and fiber.

Nutritionist advised:

  • Breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking
  • A healthy breakfast should provide the range of 20-35% of guideline daily allowance

Benefits of eating breakfast:

  • Kick-starts your metabolism help you burn calories throughout the day.
  • Better memory and concentration
  • Lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol
  • Lower chances of getting diabetes
  • Lower chances of getting heart disease

Ingredients:

Justin’s classic almond butter (I use a spoonful, amount will be based on personal preference)

1 cup frozen organic mango

2 scoop of vegan protein powder from Raw Green Organic.


Directions:

  1. Blend, blend and blend!

I used water as the base. No added sugar as mango will naturally sweeten it.

Why Raw Green Organic Vegan Protein?

Raw Green Organic Vegan Protein is organically certified, vegan, gluten-free, dairy free, soy free and high in protein, rich in omega3 6 9 fatty acids.

What I love about this protein its the packaging, unlike other protein products that are packed in a plastic container, this is packaged in eco-friendly packaging.

Note: this product does contain stevia. If you are stevia sensitive, this product may not be for you.


Note: this smoothie can drink for breakfast, and pre or post workout.
