Do your smoothies have proper balance?

 

I created a new fruit smoothie this morning and WOW— look at this color! Two great things to add in is flax for good fat and vegan protein powder. I don’t always add these in but this morning I was extra hungry and felt like a heavier drink. Must be the baby wanting extra nutrients which I am happy to give!

It’s so important to listen to our bodies and what they tell us, right?! While fruits and vegetables have plenty of protein, it’s important to hear our bodies when they try to communicate with us. I just *knew* my smoothie called for something extra this morning. 

This smoothie contains: bananas, mango, pineapple, turmeric, flax, vegan protein powder & coconut water. Simple but oh so yummy!
