This afternoon I finally broke into the Vega Chocolate smoothie mix that Amanda at Running With Spoons graciously sent me last week.
I had heard so much about this stuff before I even created the bloggie, but never could get myself to make the purchase at Whole Foods Paycheck. Two servings of veggies? 100 calories? 10 grams of protein? CHOCOLATE? I was down.
Not only did I try the Vega mix for the first time, but I also had my first smoothie-in-a-bowl! I really don’t have an explanation for this one— Forgive me?
Into the mix:
- Vega packet
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum
- Vanilla extract
- Topped with: Gluten Free Rice Krispies
If the smoothie overflows, does that make it even more delicious?
I vote yes.
I wanted to start something new on the bloggie—a list of “monthly favorites”. At the end of each month, I’m going to do a compilation post to include my favorite moments and memories of the month. This will be a great way for me to remind myself of some awesome things that happened, and let you guys catch up on any posts you might have missed.
Let us begin!
