You’ve been hit by, you’ve been struck by… a smooth(ie) criminal

That’s right, this sneaky soft talker of a smoothie will steal your heart in a flash. Guilty of being tasty. This one thrives on the awesome taste of maple syrup and by God does it thrive. This recipe makes for one generous serving and is an ideal meal replacement, if you want to skip dinner for a nutritious yet enjoyable option.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of chilled oat milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop of My Protein Maple Syrup flavor
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds
  • Nutmeg

Truth be told, the maple syrup protein powder is for people with a real sweet tooth. So you might want to tone it down a bit. This can be achieved with the help of the banana, which coincidentally also ensures a healthy dose of potassium, minerals and vitamins with your smoothie. Flaxseeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids and a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid, which can lower your risk for heart-attacks.  Lastly, the nutmeg can help your body eliminate the toxins accumulated in the liver and kidney and overall contributes to a better night’s sleep, as it is said to be a great home remedy for treating insomnia. After all, a good night’s sleep is the best foundation of a healthy body and mind.
