It's summer time and I've been beating the heat with smoothies. I started adding in Trader Joe's pea protein powder but wasn't a fan of the taste - until I created the most amazing concoction! I love this smoothie so much that I had to share the recipe. It's packed with nutrition but tastes like an exotic tropical day at the beach.
- 1 banana
- 8 ounces Trader Joe's orange mango juice
- 1 cup baby kale
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup mixed fruit (I used strawberry, blueberry and mango chunks)
- 5 ice cubes
- 2 scoops Trader Joe's organic pea protein powder
First blend the banana and juice together until mixed thoroughly. I blend in stages so that I get the right consistency and my blender doesn't go on the fritz with too much to blend all at once. After the banana and juice are mixed, add in the kale and spinach, blend. Finally, add in the mixed fruit, ice and protein powder, blend again. Then enjoy! This recipe is super simple and the end result enables me to consume kale without realizing it (yay!).
