September is smoothie month! Well… according to us it is. Vega is doing a Best Smoothie contest this month. Since Kara is a proud Vega Ambassador we figured we’d post our own Vega made smoothie.
The key to making this smoothie is the homemade almond milk. The flavor in the milk is amazing and the texture is nice and thick. Try this post workout, or swap out the Vega Sport protein for the Vega One protein and have yourself an anytime treat.
Homemade Almond Milk
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup soaked almonds
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put almonds and water in a high speed blender and blend at various speeds for a minute or so. Strain out pulp using a cheesecloth or strainer. Add strained milk back to blender and add remaining ingredients. Blend. Store in glass container in refrigerator.
- 8-10oz homemade almond milk (see above)
- 1 scoop chocolate Vega Sport Performance protein
- 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 giant tablespoon almond butter
- desired amount of ice (optional)
Put all ingredients in high speed blender. If you have a VitaMix, use the smoothie setting. If you don’t, enter Vega’s Best Smoothie contest and win one.
