Happy #EarthDay! @So_Delicious @VegaTeam #wholefood #vegan #FitFluential #SweatPink Click To Tweet

 

Growing up every Earth Day I remember going to school excited as we would plant trees, flowers, or plants and we always got to bring home a little seedling to plant. I’m bummed that schools don’t do that anymore, or at least the school my girls go to doesn’t. They still do some projects with recycling and other activities that day. That doesn’t mean we can’t have our own traditions and fun. The garden isn’t usually ready to be planted but we often plant flowers or something and we always start the day with a smoothie. While we go through our smoothie phases here and will go weeks or longer having them daily for breakfast we make our Earth Day Smoothies a little more fun. One year we made a blue and green one to look like Earth. Last year we made a Eat Dirt Protein Shake. This year we decided to just make a pretty one and add some edible flowers making a fun floral Blooming Smoothie Bowl. I added a sprulina swirl to mine. Again like many of my recipes this is meant to be for inspiration. Below is the recipe combination we used but feel free to use any of my other recipes, your favorites, or play with new combinations. Customize it to your tastes, needs, and what you have on hand.

Are you doing anything special for Earth Day?

 

Blooming Smoothie Bowl

2c frozen red berries (we used strawberries and raspberries)
1c water/coconut water or coconut milk (we used So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk)

While I do receive some Vega products from time to time, which I listed as an option in this recipe, I do purchase much of it on my own. It has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging. Even though most Vega products used are purchased by myself I do add this disclaimer. I do not make any money off any Vega sales or posts. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.

  1. That’s absolutely gorgeous! I tried vega a few months ago it was recovery drink and could not get past the grainy taste. Everyone seems to love it though perhaps I should give it another try?

      Thank you! The Recovery Accelerator can be and usually because it is just made with water in a shaker cup. I have been making it before my workout or my husbands run and put in the the fridge and then shake again just before drinking and that seems to help. I use that for the benefits and honestly it doesn’t bother me much. For the protein it can be a little sometimes if it is make with just water in a shaker cup but I do that only on rare occasions.
