Giveaway~Coconut Apricot Vanilla Smoothie

Apricots are in season!

  I like to start my morning with a high protein smoothie as protein is good to have after running.  I started this smoothie craze two years ago and have seen my body transform in a good way. Over these two years, my body has become more tone and I really think adding more protein to my diet has helped. I don’t eat meat so I think my body was lacking the protein that it needed to form my muscles. I just did not realize that as a runner, my body needed more protein.  To think that all I needed to do to tone my arms and my belly was to add more protein to my diet. To get the protein that my body needs, I use a protein powder that contains 15-20 grams of protein in my morning smoothie. That may seem like a lot of protein but I don’t eat meat and I am a runner.  An average person needs 40 -50 grams of protein a day.

   I recently discovered fermented protein powder and I liked what I discovered. I learned that fermented protein powder is better absorbed by my body and is easier to digest. I liked the sound of that! I prefer plant based protein powder and fermented plant based protein not only means no bloating but also helps with the growth of friendly bacteria. So that means I get a happy gut when I make my protein smoothie from fermented protein powder.

Genuine Health makes a delicious ferment plant based protein powder that makes my Coconut Apricot Vanilla Smoothie taste so good. My friend has an apricot tree and it had tons of fruit on it. So she invited me to pick all I could use. I now have three big bags of frozen apricots in my freezer. So I think I will be enjoying this delicious apricot smoothie for a while. Apricots make a great substitute for mangos in smoothies.
