My family loves smoothies, and I'm always looking for ways to keep them interesting. I'm new to protein powder type smoothies and shakes, and I have to admit - I love how much goodness they pack!
And adding my favorite yogurt and fresh fruit just takes it to the next level!
These smoothies were a big hit with my family. And adding a crazy straw makes any drink more fun! The strawberry-banana combo would be great with a chocolate base, too.
Healthy Skoop makes several different products to help add lots of plant-based goodness to your daily diet. Super Skoop is their all-in-one nutritional shake and comes in Chocolate and Vanilla. It's packed with 20g of protein from peas, brown rice and hemp, and has the antioxidant equivalent of four cups of organic fruits and veggies. It's full of omega-3s, prebiotics and probiotics.
They also offer B-Strong, Ignite, A-Game and B-Lovely. All of their products are dairy, whey, soy and gluten-free. They're non-GMO and certified organic. They definitely have something for everyone in their lineup!
I made a regular shake with almond milk and the Vanilla Super Skoop one morning (because I couldn't wait to use this awesome whisk ball!) before going out for a hike, and my serving kept me nice and full and energized for the 4+ miles that morning.
I also used this powder in my Mulbery-Hemp Energy Balls (both inside and as the thickener for the icing) and it worked out beautifully!
And there's even more to feel good about - Healthy Skoop donates 3 percent of its total sales to Project Produce, a program that makes healthy food exciting for kids through grants to schools to include more fresh produce in their lunch lines. They get in there and have fun with the kids to make learning about making healthy eating choices exciting, which makes all the difference in raising responsible eaters!
Psst - If you're looking for a more decadent milkshake recipe, this peanut butter banana milkshake with bacon is made without ice cream and has tons of flavor!Print
Fresh fruit, yogurt & vanilla protein powder come together in a deliciously refreshing drink!
