I am in love with light smoothies right now.
Just a touch of fruit, a little water, a bunch of veggies and; if my body needs it, a scoop of protein powder, seeds or healthy oils, and I’ve got a big, summertime smile painted right across my face.
The family and I; Kevin, my little sister, her boyfriend, Mom and Dad (plus our two dogs), have spent the last couple of days camping in British Columbia.
Friday, we loaded up a large cooler with cucumbers, spinach, beets, berries, grapes, oranges, peaches and protein powder, all for making smoothies.
We’ve kayaked, golfed, went for glorious walks in the sunshine, napped…
It’s been quite fun.
Of all the different smoothies we’ve experimented with, the Red Rooster has been everyone’s favorite, by far!

A touch of raw beet gives this green smoothie a bright and cheery glow.
Plus, it hides the spinach quite nicely!
Interested in adding a boost of protein, healthy fats or fiber?
Vega One protein powder would be fabulous in here.
3 tablespoons of shelled hemp seeds or 1 tablespoon of chia seeds would add protein, fiber and healthy fats.
1 tablespoon of flax oil would help lower your cholesterol and maintain a healthy digestive system.
I’d love to know, what is your favorite ingredient to add to your smoothies?
Are you in love with protein powders? Have you tried cooked grains like quinoa or oats?
