Vegan pre-workout protein smoothie!

Smoothies, Home, My life, Lunch, Snacks


I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend. I’ve had a very productive morning. I woke up at 9:40am (a little later that what I would have liked). I had muesli with almond milk for my breakfast and started cleaning everything in the kitchen and living room areas. I put the washer on, cleaned the benches, vacuumed the whole space, and at around 1pm, I’ve decided I should go to the gym. So I’ve made a pre-workout protein smoothie and it was DELICIOUS!


Ingredients:

¼ avocado
1 cup spinach
0.5 scoop protein powder of your choice (I used the one from a brand called ​The Protein Works​ because they sell vegan protein powder)
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup ice
Fresh mint



I used my Mr. Magic blender for this smoothie. I love this blender, as it has very powerful settings. I've used it many times before for smoothies. After all the ingredients were lined up, I started adding them to the blender.


I just love avocados so much! Anyone else...?



Once you've added all the ingredients, you're ready to blend them all up!

This was seriously yummy! I love avocados, and even though I thought that the spinach would make it a very strong bitter smoothie, the almond milk balances things out making it sweeter and perfect for a pre-workout boost of protein and vitamins!

I am now off to the gym. I hope you enjoyed this recipe.


Simply,

Mariana
