The Rebel Grrrl Kitchen. Special THANKS to her for this inspiration. She was blogging last week about a fabulous Cashew Mango Smoothie she was excited about and I told her I 'just might have to try that'...and guess what? I did! I did make a few slight changes based on the ingredients I had on hand, tho. Here's what I did for mine...
1 C Frozen Mangoes (Maybe a little more)
2 T Cashews (soaked)
1/2 C Almond Milk
1 T Sun Warrior Vanilla Warrior Blend Protein Powder
1 Handful of Baby Spinach
I have had my ups and downs with flavored Protein Powders. But I have to say...and I am not exaggerating here...something MAGICAL happened with this concoction BECAUSE of the product I used in it! It used to be that I wasn't much of a Vanilla Fan growing up but apparently the older I get the more I like it. But I like the REAL vanilla...not the fake stuff! Some of you may know how I am NOT a fan of bananas - well - I have used Mangoes in smoothies instead of Bananas and they are working really well! With this flavor combo AND the addition of Sun Warrior's Vanilla Warrior Blend this was incredibly flavorful and VERY creamy. Not only did I make this for my morning smoothie today - I tried to freeze a bit of it and it made a GLORIOUS Vegan Ice Cream!
Of course I LOVE Sun Warriors Products because they are vegan and even raw but here's a little bit more of why I LOVE the Vanilla that I used in this Smoothie AND Dessert/Treat...
It's Gluten-Free, Plant Based, Non-GMO, and Soy-Free!
It's easily digestible! It's heart healthy! It promotes healthy kidney and liver functions! Helps relieve Candida! Improves Mental Clarity! The list goes on and on, really!
Some of the wholesome goodness that is jam-packed in this product includes...15 grams of protein, Iron, 18 Amino Acids, and MUCH MORE! Just check out the link above! This is an amazing product! Very versatile! FUN! And it tastes great! I'll be sure to taste-test this product in other ways and report back here on my blog My Blissful Journey with my findings to share with you all!
