I developed this smoothie when preparing for a trip to Mexico. It made me feel like I was already on vacation, sipping something delicious while relaxing on the beach. It makes a healthy breakfast or a quick and delicious snack.

2 cups (480 ml) plain organic soy yogurt

2 cups (480 ml) frozen mango, pineapple chunks, strawberries and peach slices

1 Tbsp (15 ml) hulled hemp seeds

1 Tbsp (15 ml) golden flaxseed

1 Tbsp (15 ml) oat bran

2 Tbsp (30 ml) vegan protein powder

½ tsp (2.5 ml) pure vanilla extract

Juice of 1 lime

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately.

PROTEIN POWER!

When shopping for vegan protein powders, try to choose ones that are as natural as possible. I don’t recommend any flavored powder other than vanilla (if you are using vanilla protein powder, omit the vanilla extract from the recipe).
