Hands up if you can drink smoothies in any weather. 🙋♀️ Because honestly, same! And while we love a good fruity smoothie after a workout in the summer, we can’t help but dive into those seasonal flavors in the winter.
Enter: the best Christmas smoothie you’ll ever drink. We partnered with @life_with_kaitlin to create a recipe your taste buds won't forget!
They key? High-quality protein.💯 Kaitlin used our new Enhanced Protein Powder which includes 15g of plant protein per scoop, MCT oil, electrolyte minerals, clean plant-based ingredients, and has no added sugar while "bursting with flavor" (her words, not ours!). "It’s my go-to pick because it’s hydrating as heck (includes coconut water powder!) and gives me sustained energy, so I’m not reaching for another cup of caffeine after 5 minutes."
Here’s what you gotta do to make a healthy, delicious sugar cookie smoothie:
½ a frozen banana
1 cup frozen zucchini (peeled, sliced, steamed, then frozen, for better digestion!)
1-2 scoop(s) Après Vanilla Bean protein powder
1 Tbsp raw cashew butter
1 Tbsp Acacia fiber (or chia/flax seed)
¼ cup dairy free milk
1 cup water
⅛ Tsp vanilla extract & almond extract
Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender
Hot tip: Want it thicker? Add in more zucchini and avoid adding ice or it’ll melt all over (which may or may not have happened in the video below)
Blend until smooth (you’ll probably need to use the tamper to push it down)
If you’re feeling extra festive, top it up with some whipped coconut cream and sprinkles
What seasonal smoothie flavor are you enjoying this year?! ☃️🎄
