Mint Basil Raspberry Breakfast Smoothie

IMG_2988

Lately I’ve been loving Vega One protein smoothies for breakfast. Being vegetarian, I sometimes find it difficult to get enough protein in my diet. The Vega protein powders are a great way to sneak an extra 20 grams of protein into your day without adding too many calories or grams of sugar. I’ve been trying out a few different recipes from their web page and so far this raspberry mint basil smoothie is my favourite. It sounds like a weird combination but trust me, the flavors go perfectly together! Read on for the full recipe and check out the Vega web page for more easy breakfast smoothie recipes!

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop French Vanilla Vega One powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberry
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • 4-6 basil leaves

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy! I usually use an immersion blender for smoothies but we also have a Magic Bullet that Jonathan swears is the best thing to ever happen to breakfast smoothie making.

Also just a note-this was not a sponsored post. All opinions are mine, I’m just very enthusiastic about getting enough protein!
