Easy 3 ingredients avocado, banana and chocolate vegan protein powder.
Did you know that avocados actually contains more potassium than banana so if you’re need to boost your potassium or balance the electrolytes in your body an avocado would be a better option.
This specific recipe happens to have both avocado and banana so it’s perfect for balancing this electrolytes among other benefits like balanced blood pressure, blood sugar, improved digestion, more energy, brighter mood and decreases stress. When it comes to nutrients, the total amount of them is not the only thing that matters.
We also need to be able to absorb them... move them from the digestive tract and into the body, where they can be used.
Some nutrients are "fat soluble," meaning that they need to be combined with fat in order to be utilized.
This includes vitamins A, D, E and K... along with antioxidants like carotenoids.
One study showed that adding avocado or avocado oil to either salad or salsa can increase antioxidant absorption by 2.6 to 15-fold
So... not only is avocado highly nutritious, it can dramaticallyincrease the nutrient value of other plant foods that you are eating.
This is an excellent reason to always include a healthy fat source when you eat veggies. Without it, a lot of the beneficial plant nutrients will go to waste.
The protein powder I’ve used is Sun Warrior the warrior blend chocolate protein.... I love how nutritious this complete protein powder is:
Sun Warrior Proprietary Protein Blend (Raw Organic Cranberry Protein, Raw Pea Protein, Raw Organic Hemp Protein), Organic Cocoa Powder, Organic Natural Fibers (Fenugreek, Konjac, Guar), Organic Vanilla, Organic Stevia, Medium Chain Triglycerides.
1 scoop of chocolate vegan protein powder
1/2 cup of water, coconut water or non dairy milk (almond, cashew, coconut, hemp) ...for this particular one I used good old H2O
Throw all ingredients into a blender until creamy and you can serve it right away or chill it for a few hours. I'm a toppings kind of girl so I topped it with coconut flakes that I toasted myself, you can use slivered almonds, shredded coconut, hemp hearts, cacao nibs or whatever your little heart desires :)
Hope you enjoy!!
