I know I said I wasn’t planning on over indulging over the Christmas holiday, but I do know that I’ve certainly put away more junk than I have the good stuff over the past few weeks, and I’ve started 2016 feeling very under the weather. I am a firm believer that health begins from within, and what you put into your body has a huge effect on how you feel, so today was ideal for me to get creative and come up with a new smoothie recipe, with the help of Indigo Herbs of Glastonbury, who kindly sent me some of their ‘Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix’.
A beautiful, yummy, thick and creamy smoothie that filled me up for hours and was absolutely packed with nutrients. I can’t wait to make another one in the morning and kick this New Years cold away!
I often add superfood powders to my smoothies, especially Spirulina, and I was amazed at the ingredients of this mix from Indigo Herbs. What a delicious and simple way to add so many superfoods into your daily diet.
Indigo Herbs created their Vegan Kick Ass Smoothie Mix especially for Veganuary. Veganuary is a global campaign to inspire people to try Vegan for January.
I’ve personally followed a plant based diet as far as I possibly can for the past seven months, but I have still signed up for Veganuary, and I’m so glad I have as their website it absolutely full of useful and inspiring information. There is so much to learn about Veganism and it’s benefits, and there are so many questions that you will have when you first think about adopting a Vegan lifestyle. Veganuary.com tackles most of them, it’s a fantastic site.
If you’re interested in some more vegan recipes, including more smoothies, have a look at my recipes category here at The Sparkle Nest. I’m planning on sharing some more recipes throughout January, to share how simple it can be to adopt a vegan lifestyle with just a few adaptations to your usual favourites.
