a DELICIOUS soy smoothie! You dont need to be a vegan to enjoy this. Its delicious, full of protein and essential nutrients, and filling enough to replace a meal.
- 1⁄2 cup blueberries
- 1⁄2 cup cranberries
- 1⁄2 cup strawberry
- 1⁄4 cup of purple grapes
- 1 banana
- 1 cup vanilla-flavored soymilk
- Make sure to rinse all fruit before putting them in the blender!
- I suggest using all FRESH fruits, frozen fruits can loose nutritional values.
- put all ingredients in a blender
- here you can add certain things, for example, I add 2 TBSP's of benefiber, and a TBSP of essential greens powder, and 2 TBSP of an amino acid complex.
- but that is COMPLETELY optional.
- once all the ingredients are in, turn the blender on, and let it run for a good minute to make sure everything is mixed up.
- after the process is done you can drink one shake, and save the other for later on, drink them both, save them both, whatever you want!
- just remember that the fridge life is 4 days, to maintain the best taste, and optimal nutritional values.
Delicious! I used a mix of frozen and fresh, which I don't fell bad about because frozen fruits are often flash frozen within 8 hours of picking, locking in the nutrients until thawed. Don't feel bad using frozen food! Often there is more nutrition in frozen than fresh because fresh has had a lot more time to 'decay' and loose nutritional value. That being said fresh fruit adds a more favorable creamy texture to a good smoothie such as this one :)
I went to a cranberry festival over the weekend and came bag with lots of cranberries, so this was a good recipe to try. It uses a good amount of them, but because of all the other flavors in this drink it's not overwhelming. Very smooth and mellow.
Sort of did a combo of frozen & not ~ Used frozen blueberries & cranberries, but still found some nice fresh strawberries &, of course, the grapes! This GREAT TASTING SMOOTHIE was much appreciated! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
