Black & White Plant Strong Smoothie

Okay everyone, there are three days left in my Navitas Naturals Giveaway! This is one you don’t want to miss! Just based off the entries alone everyone seems excited but to get you even more stoked I spent the past week perfecting a smoothie recipe using Navitas’ products! As my friend Adam Sobel (the master behind the Cinnamon Snail) would say, “this will definitely make you eat your wig!” It’s a healthy variation of the classic ice cream shake: the Black & White Plant Strong Smoothie!

This is a calorie-dense, alkaline-forming smoothie designed to offer a large protein and antioxidant boost to help fill you up and repair your body after an intense workout. I can tell you in all truth, I leave for my marathon training runs drooling about the Black & White reward awaiting me when I get back!

Here is what you will need. Place them into the blender in this order:
      5 cubes of ice
     ¼ cup raw almonds*
     ¼ cup raw cashews*
     2 dates or sweetener of choice to taste
     1 tablespoon Navitas Naturals Goji berries
     3 tablespoon Navitas Naturals Hemp Seeds
     2 tablespoon Navitas Naturals Cacao powder
     1 teaspoon Navitas Naturals Maca powder
     2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
     1 cup cold water
     ¼ cup almond milk
Blend until smooth and creamy

Happy Columbus Day Everyone,

*To increase the nutrition absorption of the nuts soak them in warm water for at least 2 hours. If you do not have a high power blender substitute the nuts for 3 tablespoons of almond butter.
