Vegan Eggnog Smoothie

Breakfast decisions are difficult for me because I want it all. My go-to is oatmeal or granola, but when I’m trying to pack in some more nutrition (or eat light before workout), I make smoothies. Usually, they’re pretty boring: frozen bananas, frozen berries, flax, protein powder, cinnamon and kale (of course).

 

But when Vega sent me their new Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake, I decided it was time to change it up. I’ve made vegan eggnog before, but I had never thought to add protein powder to it and make it a full meal. I’ve been a longtime fan of Vega, but their new Vega One vanilla shake is amazing; not only does it taste better (think more of a smooth flavor, less of the typical protein powder grittiness), but it has more protein, greens, vitamins and minerals. It is still 100% made from real, whole foods without anything artificial. Eggnog for breakfast? Yes.

Easy Semi-Homemade Coconut Milk

Easy Semi-Homemade Coconut Milk

Ever since learning more about additives in non-dairy milk, I’ve said “no thanks” to most commercial non-dairy milks on the market (click here to see why).

 

I did, however, find a very easy, healthy and cheap solution to avoiding these additives: diluted coconut milk! Coconut milk has a ton of health benefits and is additive-free (if you buy the right brand). Say goodbye to expensive non-dairy milks with ingredients like carrageenan, “natural flavors” and gums.
