I’m getting a little crazy with the vitamix. And by crazy I mean trying out new smoothie recipes. This one is totally out of my “comfort zone” but it is DELICIOUS.
For the last month and a half, I’ve also been experimenting with a new protein powder (Don’t worry, I still LOVE my Vega) called Shakeology. Shakeology is a Beach Body product. In November, I signed on as a coach because I am impressed by their wide variety of workouts as well as their vegan Shakeology products (not too impressed with their non-vegan ones but I’m sure that doesn’t come as much of a surprise). I personally have been doing the Piyo workouts and for the past month, the 21 Day Fix workouts. I really like them. In conjunction with running, they are doing the job of keeping me strong during my pregnancy. I can hardly wait to use the Beach Body workouts after Baby comes to get back in shape. I also love them because it gives me something to offer my Sweet Beets Clients. Seriously, they are legit and have something for everyone.
Okay– on to this smoothie recipe.

In the blender, blend the heck out of:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop Vegan Chocolate Shakeology or Chocolate Vega
- 1 large handful mixed greens
- 1/4 cup cooked steal cut oats
- 1 cup almond milk (I used homemade)
