Louise’s Green Machine Smoothie

For those of you who watched The Taste last night, my #teamludo not only won the group VEGGIE CHALLENGE, but my girl Louise (aka. Weezy) won 2 gold stars for her veggie dish! Woot! Woot! Combine that with my man Lee saying that his gold star was for me and it’s safe to say I felt very happy with my friends stepping up there game and making some killer vegetarian dishes!
Naturally, I wanted to represent my veggie rockstar team mate Louise and asked her for a yummy recipe to share with you and I think you guys are going to LOVE this one!! Louise was kind enough to share this fabulous video with us of her making her “Green Machine Breakfast Shake” Check it out for a delicious and nutritious  way to get your greens in the AM and start your day off right. For those of you who are vegan watching, Louise does add some greek yogurt for protein, feel free to substitute that with a little more almond milk and scoop of almond butter OR if you like the yogurt-like consistency, they make some delicious almond and coconut ‘yogurts’ out there. Enjoy! Go #teamludo!

Strawberry Vanilla Vegan Protein Shake

Yesterday, I had an amazing morning running the Damon Runyon 5K for Cancer at Yankee Stadium. My friend Julie and I raised money for cancer research and got to enjoy the exhilarating 5K course around Yankee Stadium, including two laps on the actual warming track right on the field. I had a blast and boy was I a ball of sweat when we finished! It felt great! However as soon as I got home (and after I jumped in a shower) I decided to whip up a protein shake for myself to hold me over till my early dinner plans. The random, absentmindedly made concoction came out so yummy I had to share!

THE PINK DRINK 

one packet of vegan vanilla protein powder (bought at Whole Foods)

1 cup of vanilla almond milk (but you can use coconut milk, rice or soy!)

1/2 cup or so of ripe organic strawberries

1/2 a tray of organic ice cubes

Blend away!! Also, feel free to add some Truvia or agave in there if you want it to taste more like a strawberry milkshake. ;)
