I really love the Vega One protein powders. They are gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, non gmo, sweetened with stevia, and the powder doesn't have a gritty texture like with many powdered supplements. I have so much more energy since I've been using this product in my smoothies, because I'm getting all of my macronutrients.
This Chocolate Maca Mint Pie Smoothie is delicious, loaded with energizing goodness, and tastes like dessert! The alchemy created between cashews, oats, and almond butter tastes like cookie dough, and the mixture of the mint, maca, and chocolate protein powder adds crazy-good flavor.
I am sipping on one now....and it is goooood! Enjoy.

*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.
*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
