Green Protein Smoothie

Green Protein Smoothie

This vegan green protein smoothie packs protein from nut butter and hemp seeds as well as a serving of greens from fresh kale. You can you any nut butter you like! I personally prefer almond butter. Also, you can absolutely use another green such as spinach instead of kale. I love that this smoothie is sweet and creamy. Adding 1 medjool date really makes a difference in the taste of this recipe.

Smoothies are one of my favourite meals and I eat one pretty much almost every single day. I honestly don’t feel the same if I don’t drink my daily smoothie because it really optimizes my digestion. If you’d like you can make this smoothie extra green and add extra nutrition by adding a spoon of greens powder such as chlorella or barley grass juice powder.
