Close Out Summer With a Berry Protein Smoothie. ~ Melissa Green {Recipe}

I love a good smoothie, especially a sweet and refreshing one on a warm summer day that not only cools me down, but gives me a boost all morning long.

This smoothie is full of vitamins, nutrients, and vegan protein, and it’s just as delicious as it is healthy. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, or as a post workout cool down.


1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup almond milk
1 serving green powder (I’ve been loving Aloha Daily Green Goods)
1 scoop vegan protein powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca powder
More almond milk or water as needed—I like my smoothies thick and often eat them with a spoon!


Add all ingredients to the blender and blend thoroughly—add more liquid as needed.

I made this smoothie for breakfast today and I can’t wait to make it again tomorrow! It’s the perfect combo of cold, creamy, and sweet…and I can fully enjoy it because every ingredient nourishes and fuels my body.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
