Purple Monster Smoothie

August 1, 2017

 

This is probably my favourite smoothie yet! I have really been trying to incorporate a lot into smoothies. The reason being? You can mask a lot of nutrients and squeeze in a serving or two of vegetables, especially greens! I've tried to make this smoothie a balance of healthy proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. It will leaving you feeling more full for longer making it a great breakfast option, and is convenient to take to go! It incorporates all macronutrients but still tastes great! You can also find it on my instagram page @thehealthybeanottawa! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 

 

This smoothie is also great for my cardio junkies. If you are a runner, cyclist, swimmer, or love cardio at the gym, this smoothie provides you with an excellent protein to carbohydrate to fat ratio for before of after your workout. I have been passing this smoothie on to runners for a few months now. It has been such a big hit so it is time to make it public!
