I know that the winter months can be tough, it’s cold and dark in the mornings, making it much more difficult to wake up. Well, that’s why I’m here today to bring you an energy boosting smoothie to start your day!
If you’re not incorporating hemp seeds into your smoothies, now’s the perfect time to start!
Hemp seeds are a natural energy booster, a complete protein and an excellent source of essential fatty acids including Omega 3 & 6.
All of the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in Beaming Protein Powder with Greens add even more energy boosting qualities to this smoothie.
The great thing about almond milk is that it’s low in carbs, which means it won’t significantly increase your blood sugar levels, reducing your risk for diabetes. And, because of its low glycemic index, your body will use the carbs as energy so the sugars aren’t stored as fat. More energy + less fat = winning! (For more info see lifehack.org)

Drink up and perk up 🙂
