Garnet Gem Power Blend Meal Replacement Smoothie (Includes Vegan Options)
Enjoy this high protein smoothie at holiday time or anytime you need to power up. Cranberries provide beautiful garnet red color and an antioxidant boost, and are complemented with refreshing citrus tangerine flavor and real vanilla.
1 cup of unsweetened milk: Fat Free Dairy or Lactose & Fat-free Ultrafiltered Dairy or Soy Milk or Pea Protein Milk
Protein powder: 1 tbsp. pumpkin seed or 1 tbsp. pea/quinoa or 2 tbsp. soy or 2 tbsp. whey
½ cup unsweetened whole cranberries (frozen)
1 medium tangerine or mandarin orange, peeled, sections broken apart (frozen)
½ cup cauliflower florets (frozen)
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. chia seed (we prefer milled white)
2 packets (2 tsp.) zero calorie sugar substitute
Pour milk into a blender.
Add protein powder.
Add remaining ingredients.
Blend on high speed until smooth — about 1 minute.
- Buying and using frozen cauliflower adds convenience, helps reduce waste, eliminates the need to add ice to your smoothie, and helps make a smooth consistency.
- Peel and section tangerines and pre-measure cauliflower and cranberries, put them in small storage bags or other containers, and store in the freezer so when you’re ready to make a smoothie the ingredients are ready to go.
- If you use a non-dairy milk alternative, choose a product fortified with calcium and vitamins A, D, and B12.
*Customize your smoothie with your choice of milk and protein powder. If you must avoid dairy (including whey) or soy, try one of our suggested alternatives.
