As my continued health kick in 2016, I am always on the lookout for new ways to eat and drink a little bit more healthy. I believe, more and more, that eating well and living well are so closely connected and vitally important. I don’t even think you have to be a “crazy health” person to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle while choosing the right foods. It’s just something that we all should do. Period.
One big addition to my diet that has been good-for-me shakes and smoothies and one of my absolute favorites to date has to be the NEW Kashi Organic Breakfast Superblends Cocoa Awakening I picked up at Target.com. This nutrient-packed vegan powder blends perfectly into your lifestyle, offering diverse nutrition from a variety of whole foods. All the goodness is blended together into a convenient organic plant based protein powder. The main component of Cocoa Awakening is pea protein! Check out some of the important details of this power-packed drink:
- USDA Organic
- Non-GMO Project Verified
- Fair Trade cocoa powder
- 16g plant protein from peas, flax, garbanzo beans and more
- 1500mg ALA-omega 3
- 9g fiber per serving
- 6g total fat per serving
Seriously, check out this list of ingredients (*Organic):
Pea protein*, ground flax seeds*, dried cane syrup*, garbanzo beans*, cocoa*†, dried spinach*, quinoa*, dried kale*, acacia gum*, dried blackberry*, dried blueberry*, natural flavors, monk fruit extract, cinnamon*
When I make this, I typically like to keep it simple since it’s already packed! I use Unsweetened Rice Milk to mix then add about 10 blueberries, along with a tablespoon of cayenne pepper (I love spice) and a teaspoon of honey. I love to mix of the green components like the spinach with the sweetness of the fruit and touch of honey and the kick of the pepper. It’s a great balance that hits all the flavor profiles.
To make it fun for the kids to eat, I turn these babies into pops (without the Cayenne Pepper). It’s really easy and it makes a world of difference. The kids absolutely love it because it tastes awesome and they know it’s good for them, plus they just love eating popsicles. Who can blame them? It pretty much blows their minds that dad is encouraging to eat these pops.
