This Monday calls for a Magic Mocha Malt! This is one of my newest protein shakes and I’ve been loving it lately for it’s satiety, creamy texture and mocha-y, coffee taste without the coffee!
It’s high in protein, and contains something you’d never guess you’d find yourself eating for breakfast… CAULIFLOWER ya’ll! Trust me on this one! Smoothies are becoming quite the little endeavors! First there was spinach, then kale, next zucchini and now cauliflower!! Whaaaaat? America’s catching on finally.. Grandma was right, eat your vegetables! I mean look at that, would you guess theres vegetables blended up in there? All I see is creamy goodness!
Along with some veggies this malt uses some of my favorite brands of products. Kite Hill And Vega which are becoming staples for me! Clean label products are becoming mainstream and I couldn’t be happier. With the rise in infertility rates, cancers and cardiovascular disease, there’s nothing that I can think of to better this issue than companies paying more attention what goes into their products vs how much they can sell. Our bodies just weren’t designed to put up with all the preservatives, chemicals and weird funky things that many companies use, yet still market their product as “healthy”. I’m super proud to announce the launch of my personal almond milk line which falls into the “clean ingredients” category. Beetle Mylk is now available for order in the NN Shop! So, as I was saying, Kite Hill & Vega are two amazing companies; their products are dairy free, preservative free, filler and binder free, low in sugar, and contain real ingredients from real food! What more do you need?
I’ve been having this smoothie post workout, although it also serves as a nice creamy dessert or breakfast option. It’s easy on digestion and full of antioxidants, probiotics, healthy fats, and low in sugar. It’s pretty much magic in a bowl!
