‘Tis the season to be jolly! I know it’s Thanksgiving in the US, but here in Canada we are already in full Christmas mode. This week I wanted to share a little bit of exciting news with you and share a recipe to go along with it!
Most of you who read my blog regularly know how much I love my Vega One. It’s the BEST “all in one” shake on the market in my opinion. Why? Because Vega is one of the few products on the market to provide you with a 100% plant based nutrition AND give you a big fat dose your daily nutritional needs all in one scoop. So… what is this news I have to share? Well… my favorite shake just got better! My reps over at Vega sent me the newest wave of Vega One which will be made available in the new year (although I have seen it at Whole Foods already!). What makes the new Vega one different than the old? Well for starters it has 33% more protein and twice the amount of greens as before, making it an even better bang for your buck. Personally, I love this version because of the additional protein. Being as active as I am, I have always had a hard time meeting my daily protein requirements. I don’t eat nearly as much as I should, and even though I try, I barely make it sometimes and that’s where my shakes really come in. This new formula will take me one step closer to my daily needs so that alone gets me all giddy inside.
I want to send out a big thank you to Trevor at the Vega headquarters. You can follow him @TrevorEllestad for daily updates and pure entertainment. Thanks for being such an awesome person to work with, and really just an awesome person in general. Your emails always make me happy and your enthusiasm goes a LONG way. Love you!
Now without further delay, here is the Christmas Crunch Smoothie recipe I promised. I hope you guys enjoy it!
1 Scoop of Vega One in Chocolate
1/3 cup of the Granola King – Hazelnut Hemp Granola (any granola will do, but this is my fave)
1 Tbsp of crushed peppermint candy cane
1 cup of almond milk
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and enjoy! Garnish with a little candy cane on top if you’re feeling extra pretty!
