Smoothies are a great way to fuel up and nourish when you’re short on time, on the go, chasing the kids, and after your workout. Cranberries add a delightful sweet and tart zing, and are loaded with anti-oxidants, vitamin C and E, manganese and fiber, boosting your energy and immunity.
Once you build confidence with this smoothie-beginner-friendly-recipe, try switching up your liquids and fruits. Add greens, seeds, seed or nut butter, and spices (like cinnamon, turmeric or ginger) for a variety of flavors and nutrients! Smoothies are really forgiving, so if you’re out of an ingredient, simply swap it for something similar.
ZEGOs organic Plant Protein is made simply with 100% sacha inchi seeds and no flavors or sweeteners. Sacha inchi seeds have the best amino acid profile of all the plant proteins on the market, including pea, rice, soy, and hemp (other plant proteins are typically low in lysine and tryptophan).
Cranberry Smoothie: How this Smoothie is Better
Packed with whole food vitamins and minerals, this smoothie is all real food (no protein isolates that can upset your stomach and are hard to absorb). And, because our protein powder is whole food, you absorb about 1/3 more than protein isolates like rice, pea or whey! Keep in mind that the less you blend it, the more fiber benefits it will retain (true of all smoothies)! ZEGO’s plant protein has been purity tested for lead, arsenic, cadmium and other toxins like glyphosate and meets California’s strict Prop 65 standards.
