Cheech's Original Powerhouse Smoothie
After reading about 'superfoods' I decided to come up with a smoothie that incorporated some of the best. I drink this probably at least 5/7 mornings for breakfast. It's loaded with protein, fiber, omegas, lignans and energy-giving ingredients!
1 cup non-dairy milk ( I use unsweetened hemp milk)
2 T. Hemp protein powder
1 T. ground flax seed
1 tsp spirulina
handful of greens (I usually use spinach or kale)
handful of berries (you can use fresh or frozen)
approx 3 T goji berries
Blend all ingredients.
*The spirulina does have somewhat of a strong flavor but you can extra sweetener to this by using a vanilla flavored "milk" or by adding dates, agave nectar or honey*
I've attached a link on the benefits of spirulina:
