Love Crunch Hooptie Blender Smoothie Recipe #1

Okay, so I have a few things in progress but haven’t actually posted anything for a while. I thought I would share this preliminary hooptie blender smoothie me and the kids made this weekend.  Turned out awesome, you could even tweak this recipe and go more in the cacao-enhancement direction easily.  Love Crunch is a neat organic granola with dark chocolate pieces and freeze-dried berries that come alive in all kinds of milks!

1 cup raw almonds (sprouted if you have time)

3 cups PiMag water, or just regular water if you prefer

1 1/2 cups Nature’s Path Love Crunch Premium Organic Granola (dark chocolate and red berries) Yes I’m totally fine with soy oil and soy lecithin in this non-GMO verified product. Obviously if you have soy allergies you can find a different granola, try adding some chocolate covered cacao nibs and freeze-dried strawberries for a similar effect.

1 scoop chocolate protein powder 16 grams protein – I used  SunWarrior Classic Protein organic chocolate sprouted brown rice powder

1 cup Pomegranate Juice

2 cup fresh strawberries, tops cut off

1 whole banana

Like I said there are a whole lot of different directions you can go with a chocolaty granola smoothie! My daughter says the dark chocolate adds a flavor that “knocks on your taste bud’s door and says – I’m coming in!”Image
