Your morning energy drink can be fun, energizing, and vegan all at the same time. There are lots of things that you can add that will give you the boost that you need to get you through the day. Here are just some of the ways that you can create an energizing smoothie as a part of your morning routine.
Spice It Up
This time of year, it’s all about the pumpkin spice. A little bit of pumpkin spice can go a long way in getting you ready for the season. Add in pumpkin seed milk so that you can really take it up a notch. You can make your own pumpkin spice by combining cinnamon and ground ginger. This is the essence of that favorite recipe that you look forward to all year long. Add in a cinnamon stick if you enjoy the extra bite that more cinnamon can bring to your smoothie.
Just Add Powder
You can make any type of smoothie more energizing with the addition of vegan protein powder. This will allow you to create your favorite flavor of smoothie without having to worry about it tiding you over. Another good thing about protein powder is that it’s often used to help you gain more muscle mass after a workout. This may be the perfect thing to help you get back into shape before the holiday season arrives.
Fun Ice Cubes
If you enjoy iced drinks, consider adding in mocha coffee ice cubes. This will eliminate the last of your smoothie becoming watered down. It can also add a boost of flavor to the smoothie that you’ve already worked to create. To make it vegan, just use nut or soy based milk with the flavoring that you desire and put your mocha ice cubes into the mix at the end. This will give you a slight mocha flavor without being too overpowering.
Your smoothie can look like a work of art. Start with the base and add in fruit to the top of the mix. This will give you a more wholesome meal to start the day. There are other types of dessert treats that you can make that will also be energizing. Oatmeal is another hearty choice to add into your smoothie mix. This will give you the energy that you need to get the day off on the right foot.
Crafting the perfect smoothie doesn’t need to be a struggle. Use these ideas to give you the energy that you need to get going every day.
