Happy Sunday morning, everyone! I woke up this morning really excited for a smoothie. Last weekend when my sister and I were at Whole Foods, I was really happy to find some sample packets of Amazing Grass Green Super Foods for sale. It was going to be a huge commitment for me to buy a big container of the stuff if I had not tried it yet. Here are some of the samples I picked up last Sunday:
Here is the Super Food I decided to use this morning:
Along with the Chocolate (cacao) blend, I added 1/3 of a banana, a handful of blueberries, a few raspberries, ice, 3/4 cup soy milk, 1 1/2 scoops of Aria Protein Powder and 1/3 cup organic yogurt.
The end result!? Amazing:
Although I used my blender to make the smoothie, I drank it out of my blender cup. I love this cup – on mornings when I do not have time to use the blender, I can shake up a drink with soy milk, protein powder and Green Super Food. It is also a great To Go cup:
A few of my friends have asked me about the benefits of this Amazing Grass stuff. Here are a few facts and you can go to their website to learn even more: one serving has a large serving of antioxidants, it will boost energy, boost your immune system and helps you get part of your five servings a day of fruits and veggies. And one serving is only 30 calories – and has anywhere between 65% – 100% of your vitamin A along with many other vitamins and minerals.
I really enjoyed the chocolate drink mix. But I am going to try the other two before I make up my mind on which to purchase. I will make sure to report back on how I like the Berry flavor and the original flavor!
Now I am waiting just a little longer to “digest” before I head out for a run. It’s a great running day out there – slightly overcast and cool. 🙂 I must take advantage!
I’ll be back later today. Enjoy the day, everyone!
