If you’ve met me or read my posts, you know that I’m a huge advocate of smoothies. To me, they are the most convenient way to get everything you need nutritionally into one quick drink, helping to keep me on track with my goals and feel my best overall! One smoothie a day can help speed up your metabolism and improve digestion and energy. So if you don’t know, now you know.

Want to make your smoothie’s even simpler, with less ingredients but more nutritional benefit?

Add Vega One All-in-one Nutritional Shake & use Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk for the base. One scoop of Vega Nutritional Shake has 20g of protein, 6 servings of greens, 50% of your Daily Vitamins & Minerals, fibre, omega-3’s, antioxidants and probiotics. Not to mention it’s full of superfoods like hemp, maca, and spirulina. Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk is a great source of Vitamin D, has as much Calcium as dairy milk and is free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg & MSG. Both of these staples are Non-GMO Project Verified!
