Strawberries are a sweet and delicious addition to this healthy smoothie!
Did you know strawberries have powerful antioxidant properties? They do! Plus they don't rapidly boost blood sugars and they are a great source of fiber which helps regulate blood sugar!
1 serving protein powder
1/3 cup strawberries chopped
½ cup spinach
½ cup unsweetened, full-fat organic canned coconut milk
4 ice cubes
3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds (or hemp seeds)
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cocoa nibs
Honey if needed
Place protein powder, spinach, coconut milk, ice, pumpkin seeds, cocoa powder and vanilla in a blender.
Process until slightly smooth so you can eat with a spoon.
Stir in strawberries and cocoa nibs (if you want them).
Buying organic, pesticide free produce is the better choice. Strawberries are one of the highest ranking on the 'Dirty Dozen' list of produce containing pesticide residue.
