    Sounds yummy! I personally am all about green smoothies, so my smoothie usually is a variation off of the following:
    1 pear/frozen berries/frozen peaches
    large handful or two of spinach
    1 cup coconut water/unsweetened almond milk
    1 tea. bee pollen
    vegan protein/whey protein
    Any sometimes I will add extras: vanilla extract/ cinnamon/ greens powder/ a leaf or two of kale.

    Yum! Thanks for sharing. I’m totally trying this. Is there a particular brand of vegan protein you like, Tara?
