Vegan Coconut Blueberry Summer Smoothie Recipe

If you don’t already know, I kind think I’m the queen of smoothies. I mean, I even started my own little business a few years ago – Borrow My Blender – where I catered events with smoothies as well as worked with brands / products to create amazing recipes and showcased products that I love and think you’ll love too!

For the next month, I’ll be focusing on protein products over on the BMB social channels and maybe even on the blog so if you have a favourite recipe to share please leave me a link or tag me on Twitter / Instagram / Facebook etc (@borrowmyblender on all channels) and I will feature your posts / ideas!

Until then, I have a recipe to share with you which I lived on last month after trying out the newly launched Vita Coco Coconut Milk Alternative. The recipe was inspired by one from Protein Haus …I used the ingredients listed on theirs and created with my favourite products and quantities to make a consistency and flavour that I thought was perfect. It tastes divine and I wanted to make sure that everyone came across it so I’m shaken it here on the blog as well as having shared it over on the BMB Instagram account.

1.5 tsp Maca powder
Large handful spinach
1 scoop vegan vanilla protein (I’m currently using Vega Clean Protein)

Method: Simple as ever, pop everything into your blender and blitz until smooth!

I’m not sure if I mentioned it (time just flies) but on Saturday 13th May… this weekend, I’ll be taking part in the Balance Festival Urban Tri as part of #TeamVega! …I announced it on Instagram a while back and am super excited to be part of this squad for this awesome event which will be a mix of HIIT, running and yoga. Vega will also be at Balance Festival blending up smoothies for everyone so if you will be there check them out!

I’ve been using their Clean Protein (in vanilla) for the past few weeks in preparation for the event on Saturday. I mostly have protein smoothies for my early starts when I wake up with only enough time to blend up a couple smoothies and pop them in my bag ready for when I find my appetite and for after teaching a double Lift class (check out my teaching schedule here and come train with me!). I also pin a post on Facebook each week detailing where I am teaching and training if you wanna join me!
