green goo protein smoothie

Green Goo Smoothie

I just got back from a morning run – yay! It really is a great way to start the day… who would have thought?! Anyways, a little while back, I bought Brendan Brazier’s Vega Sport Chocolate Protein (like I actually was going to become some kind of iron woman that required extra protein, but that’s a whole other story). I tried it for the first time yesterday in a smoothie concoction I didn’t really enjoy much at all. Then this morning I stumbled across a strange gooey concoction that is actually quite yummy, if not a wee bit scary-looking…!

Ingredients

  • 1 large banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 large handful blueberries
  • 1 stick celery
  • 2-3 large handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 scoop Vega Sport Chocolate Protein – I’m using half scoops until I actually become said iron woman :)

Instructions

  • Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. It goes a bit fluffy-gooey because of the avocado and is thick so I recommend using a straw to suck this bad boy up.

  1. looks good although I do not use protein powders in our green smoothies, have tried them years ago and thought it ruined the flavor of the fresh fruits and veggies–just me I guess

    • I totally agree Elizabeth! I have three tubs of protein powder at home because I buy different sorts to try and never use them for that reason… think I might start sucking it down with water instead – if I decide I really need it :)
