Gracious Living Chocolate Banana Mint-Grace Van Berkum_Ergogenics Hemp Protein
1 serving of one of my newest top picks Ergogenics chocolate protein powder (or plant-based protein powder of your choice)
Handful raw cacao beans or powder  (magnesium boost)
1-2 frozen bananas (frozen bananas make your smoothie creamier)
Handful fresh mint (enhances digestion)
Sprinkle of bee pollen  (energizing)
1 tsp chia gel (electrolyte balancing)
Natural sweetener of choice
3-4 cups unsweetened hazlenut milk (or nut milk of your choice)
Handful of ice

Variation: Instead of nut milk, use 1/2 avocado with water as the liquid. Deliciously creamy texture with extra potassium & fibre.

Blend till smooth and creamy. Raw, vegan, satisfying, easy-to-digest superfood smoothie to boost your health and immune system.

The better you eat, the better you feel, the better you look.
YOU decide what you want that to look like.~~Gracious Living

**Organic Hemp Protein is water-soluble and is an excellent source of Essential Amino Acids. It has a complete spectrum of natural organic proteins, with all 20 amino acids used in the human body, including all 10 essential amino acids. The proteins found in hemp are similar to proteins found in the human body. Soluble Hemp protein also provides essential fatty acids (EFAs) omega-6 and omega-3 in a healthy 3:1 ratio. Hemp is also an excellent source of dietary fibre and is very rich in vitamins and minerals.

You are what you eat.
You are what you think.
