{Recipe} Whole Food Protein Smoothie with Strawberries

Protein powders are great and serve a purpose, and I’m definitely not one to turn my nose up at a premixed protein shake from the store – in fact, I have one almost every day. But I do love a good, wholesome, whole food smoothie with nutrition the way nature intended… As a packaged deal.

This recipe provides over 30% of the FDA’s daily protein and iron requirement, as well as more than 300% of our vitamin C needs, thus enhancing our body’s ability to absorb iron. It is full of fiber and provides 25% of our daily folate requirement. Folate is an important nutrient for
pregnant moms. Last, but not least it’s creamy and delicious!

You can find this recipe in the Nourished Village Cookbook, volume 1.
