Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie

standard September 23, 2014 Leave a response

When it comes to smoothies, the greener the better, right? This hearty breakfast packs in loads of green from spinach, avocado, and figs. A hint of sweetness and a protein boost round out this filling drink.

I used Vega One protein here, but feel free to sub your favorite vanilla protein of choice. While I’m not big on supplements, Vega is the one I do stand by and use daily, thanks to its simple ingredient list, whole green foods, and extensive nutrient profile.
