As a kid one of my favorite treats was a mint chocolate chip ice-cream sundae tipped with hot fudge from Carvel. I salivate just thinking of it. But of course, it’s not something my stomach wants any more as an adult with the artificial green coloring and fake mint flavor. Not to mention my stomach can not handle the overload of dairy at once.
So, with my favorite protein packed smoothie mix from Vega, I’ve created a substitute for this yummy treat that is healthy, delicious, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan, and guilt-free! Vega is a brand that makes high quality vegan protein blends made from a mixture of pea, hemp and brown rice protein and adds tons of minerals, vitamins and probiotics to make it a perfect meal replacement.
Here you go:
1 scoop chocolate Vega Protein Smoothie
1 cup of almond or coconut milk
1 tsp maca powder
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1 handle of fresh mint sprigs
3-4 ice cubes
Blend in your Vitamix or other favorite blender and enjoy!
