It’s been a long while since I have posted a smoothie recipe here, but I recently discovered Sunwarrior’s Chocolate Warrior Blend. This is perhaps one of the best smoothie blends I have had. I have been addicted to it lately, and have found myself making it 2-3 times a week. This raw plant based protein is also an excellent source of amino acids, is high in anti-oxidants, is a complete protein, and provides a HUGE bost of energy and mental clarity. It’s a great way to start your day or to provide a boost of energy in the afternoon hours when you start to drag. It’s also great for recovery from intense exercise.
- 1.5 cups of almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
- 1 1/2 bananas
- 2 TBSP of almond butter (or peanut butter if you prefer)
- 1-2 TBSP of raw honey or other sweetener
- 1 hand full of spinach, or add your favorite greens powder
- 2 Scoops of Chocolate Flavored Warrior Blend, by Sunwarrior
- 8 cubes of ice
Add all ingredients in your VitaMix blender (free shipping using the link beside) and process until smooth! The recipe will make approximately 2 servings.
Sunwarrior is also committed to sustainability! I recently had a chance to meet some of their team at Expo West and they are working hard to make their line of products organic! There isn’t a set ETA, but rest assured this company cares about the environment and creating a high quality, non-gmo, organic product. They are also vegan, soy free, dairy free and raw.
