Raw Green Berry Layered Shake
Sprout Living was kind enough to send me some of their products to try, and one of them was the Green Kingdom Epic Protein. It is a vitamin rich protein filled with green plants such as spirulina, kale, and Indian moringa but it does not taste like it does, in fact it tastes sweet and delicious! I love all of the Sprout Living proteins, but I have to say this one is my favorite that I have tried. It tastes like berries and fruit to me, so I decided that it would be wonderful in a berry shake.
I am always making shakes and smoothies for myself or my boyfriend Eric and I to share, and I usually include some form of protein so I couldn't wait to try the Green Kingdom. Since it is winter and I am having a lack of fresh berries, I thought I would use my frozen ones in this smoothie with the green protein powder to create a fun layered drink. Truth be told, it ended up looking like Spring which is great because I could go for some spring right about now and I am hoping for an early one this year since it seems like the last two years we were jipped out of one. For the shake, I made a green layer with bananas, pineapple and the protein, and for the berry raspberries, strawberries, and banana. I kept this sugar free sweetening just with a hint of stevia (which is what I usually do since fruit is sweet enough). It was yummalicious! The Green Kingdom complimented the berries well, but I have a feeling it would be delicious in any fruity shake or smoothie. If you would like to grab some for yourself, you can find it HERE. Nothing beats getting an extra burst of greens goodness!
