Fruit Smoothies

I have decided to try some fruit smoothies with the added Alive nutritional shake.

I have created several recipes with fruits and vegetables based on some I’ve seen at fruit smoothie places and also my own.

This one is:

– 8oz of water/coconut water/coconut milk

– handful of kale

– A scoop of Alive pea protein

– Mango slices

– Half an orange

– A banana

Blend it, add some splenda if you wish and enjoy!

– A scoop of Alive pea protein

– A handful of blueberries

– Some pineapple slices

– A banana

– A handful of dates

Blend it, add some splenda if you wish and enjoy!

 

You can create any mix of fruits and vegetables for your smoothies. I have found that dates will naturally sweeten the smoothie and banana will cover up some of the after taste of the protein shake.

Here are some ideas: Bananas, apples, strawberries, spinach, dates, kale, blueberries, blackberries, oranges, mangos, etc…The possibilities are endless!

I would like to say that hummus is one of the greatest things that will ever exist for a vegan. It’s simple, inexpensive, delicious, and very much vegan. If you are ever in a sandwich or wrap type of mood and don’t know what to put in it, hummus is your answer. As a sandwich, topping, dipping, and as a meal, hummus will be your choice!

There are many different types of hummus available and I prefer the classic hummus without any of the additional stuff added. You can eat them with wraps, pita chips, chips, and even mix them up with some salsa! Hummus is a great source of protein, it contains all the good fats is most definitely good for you.

You can add some fresh tomatos, some falafels, add it to your salads, have it with some kale chips, carrot chips, and even cucumber slices. You can even mix it with some olive oil! There is no end to the types of foods or snacks you can create with hummus. It’s the best!

Enjoy! =)
