Berry Healthy Vegan Vanilla Shakeology Smoothie

Berry Healthy Vegan Vanilla Shakeology Smoothie

Hello darlings,

For those of you who don’t know, Shakeology recently came out with two new Vegan flavors: Vanilla Vegan and Café Latte Vegan. There is also Chocolate Vegan and Tropical Strawberry Vegan as well as five Whey flavors. With that being said, I couldn’t be more excited to share with you one of my newest and favorite recipes! If you read my last Shakeology post, then you read all about my allergies and how I’m lactose intolerant but also have a nut-allergies. Which brings me to this recipe. If you’re someone who is vegan or simply lives a vegan lifestyle you’re in for a treat. I chose the Vanilla Vegan Shakeology for my smoothie which is made from high-quality plants proteins from brown rice, pea and other plant sources (super delicious).

What you’ll need for this recipe:

  • Dairy-free milk ( almond/coconut or plant-based milk)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 raspberries
  • 1 Vanilla Vegan Shakeology serving
  • 1 cup of ice

You’ll take all the ingredients and mix them in a blender with a cup of ice. Then it’s ready to serve!

 

Why it’s my favorite? It’s perfect for when I’m on the go and fuels me in the morning before I have my mid-morning yogurt.

Fun fact! The fruit and vegetable powders in Shakeology deliver phytonutrients which are beneficial substances distinct to plants. Some of these substances have antioxidant properties meaning they help neutralize molecules known as free radicals that damage cells.

It also helps with healthy digestion which is a major plus me!

So would you have this Vanilla Vegan smoothie? What would you put in it to make it your own?

Let me know in the comments below and as always if you try it, come back and let me know how you like it!

How To Incorporate Color Into Your Summer Wardrobe

How To Incorporate Color Into Your Summer Wardrobe

Hello darlings, One of my biggest challenges this season has been incorporating color. As someone who absolutely loves black and sticking to neutrals (I know so boring), it’s not so easy crossing over to the bright side. But lately I’ve been really drawn to pinks […]

Why I Love Provisions Market Hall

Why I Love Provisions Market Hall

Hello darlings,

For those of you who don’t know I’m totally obsessed with Provisions Market Hall. Most of you know that I’m more of an afternoon bruncher but when I’m up early and need to go run errands and want something quick and yummy I ALWAYS go to Provisions. It’s also at my favorite place ever, 5th street market which is full of shops, restaurants and even a wine tasting room!

This past Sunday I met up with my new friend and fellow photographer gal Brandy. We’ve been meaning to meet up and just haven’t had the time until now so of course our meet spot was the market. We stopped by provisions, grabbed a latte (insanely delicious but a little pricey) and some pastries. Why I love this place so much? They have pastries galore. Croissants, macarons, cute little coffee trinkets, chocolates, sweets you name it. And yes they also have a market on the side that sells fresh produce, wine, flowers, etc. The options are seriously endless. And for those who aren’t morning risers, they have a salad bar and sandwich area. You can also get a glass of wine or beer!

The inside is seriously so cute and the best part was chatting it up with Brandy like we were old friends. We talked about photography, blogging, what we’re passionate about and what brought me out here to the good ol’ Pacific Northwest. It was really refreshing to meet such a passionate girl who loves what she does and is killing it! P.S I want that coffee mug!

 

After grabbing a cup of joe and a light breakfast, we headed around the market area and took some photos.

I wore this dress from BCBGeneration that I’ve had for some time now but it just hasn’t been warm enough to wear it out. I love the tiered detailing and subtle ruffles that make it perfect for spring. Paired with my new favorite booties it’s basically what you’ll most likely be seeing me in for the rest of the season.

Special thanks to the wonderful soul who took these photos.  Make sure to check her out here.

Do you have a favorite place you love to go to meet up with your girls for a quick latte?
