Saint Patty's Day GREEN Smoothie

in #nutrition6 years ago (edited)

Happy Saint Patty's Day!!!!

Instead of getting fall down drunk today, how about whipping together a tasty green smoothie?
My girlfriend and I LOVE this simple and delicious recipe we filmed just for you:

2 cups Organic Spinach
1 cup Water
1 Cup Almond Milk
1 Cup Frozen or Fresh Organic Berries
1/2 Cup Ice
2 Scoops Collagen or Pea Protein

Over the years I've eliminated most dairy from my diet. (I still eat ice cream from time to time!!) I never drink milk and I've swapped my whey protein for plant based proteins and collagen protein. My reason? It just makes me feel better! Dairy leaves me feeling bloated and full. I'm currently enjoying collagen and pea proteins.

Collagen is naturally found in bone broth and contains 19 amino acids. Collagen is the key structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of all of our connective tissues; its essentially the glue holding our bodies together. The peptides in collagen, when digested, are quickly drawn to cells called fibroblasts that synthesize collagen in the human body. New collagen fibers grow in both density and diameter, potentially improving the strength, elasticity, and moisture of the skin. Hell Yeah!

Collagen supplementation has also been proven to assist in proper healing of joints, muscle, and ligaments. This means faster recovery + good skin. I'm in!

I'm all about balance, so if you're out partying it up this St. Patty's Day -- have FUN. Maybe you can sip this delicious smoothie in the morning as a different kind of recovery shake ;)



uu... looks really healthy AND yummy... I should try to do it... 😊 @peekbit
