Mango Kale Protein Smoothie

January 1, 2012

Mango Kale Protein Smoothie

As an endurance athlete and a vegan I am always looking for ways to increase my protein intake. This great-tasting and simple green smoothie provides 50 grams of protein and is rich in nutrients and anti-oxidants. Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet, and this smoothie makes for an incredible recovery drink after a long run!

1 ripe banana
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
3/4 cup frozen diced mango
3/4 cup frozen chopped kale
2 scoops soy protein powder
2 TBL light agave nectar
soy milk (enough to cover all the other ingredients)

Place all ingredients except soy milk into a blender in the order above. Add soy milk until the bananas begin to float. Blend well, drink up, and feel great!

      I usually use the Whole Foods brand soy protein powder, but have been looking into Brendan Brazier’s Vega line lately. The Whole Food Optimizer looks like it would work with just about anything. Which one do you like?
