MORNING SMOOTHIES

10/13/2016

c96a6233We are a smoothie and juice loving family right here. We either make or buy (from our favorite local spot!) various juices or smoothies at least 4-5 mornings per week. It’s a surefire way to get some good nutrition and vitamins into these picky eaters of mine, and makes for a quick and easy clean up. Plus, as someone who has always been prone to skipping breakfast, for those mornings when I don’t have time or am not hungry, it’s easy to make a smoothie alongside my cup of coffee.

We have been longtime OLLY multivitamin users (I love the Beauty Vitamins), so I was naturally excited to hear that the brand recently released a line of plant-based smoothie protein powders. OLLY created nine different flavor options each slated for different dietary and wellness needs. From probiotics to workout enhancers to energy boosters, there are plenty of options for just about anyone (even little ones!). Some of the flavors include chocolate peanut butter, creamy strawberry, and salted caramel.

c96a6221We were sent three to try—the Kids Smoothie, the Workout Smoothie, and the Nourishing Smoothie protein powders. The unique blends are designed to only need water for mixing, but we doctored up each one a bit with a few ingredients for extra flavor and nourishment.

Kids PB&B Chocolate: 1/3 frozen banana, ½ tbsp peanut butter, 8 oz milk, 2 scoops of smoothie protein powder.

Workout PB&B Chocolate: ½ frozen banana, 10 oz. ice cold water, 2 scoops of smoothie protein powder.

Carrot Ginger Zinger: ½ of medium carrot, 1 tsp grated ginger, 1 cup cold water, 2 scoops smoothie protein powder.

Luckily, OLLY is offering a “Smoothie Style Sweeps” that includes over $1,000 in prizes. So, check it out and get to blending!
