They’re quick. Delicious and so filling.
Combining different ingredients and whipping them up in a blender is such a magical thing. I was with the kiddies one day and decided to make a smoothie. I was initially going to make my favorite kale berry smoothie, but decided to try something different since we had quite a few green peas What I came up with was this green pea smoothie with blueberries.
Have you ever had peas in a smoothie? Does is sound disgusting? Not so fast. Many vegan protein powders are pea protein based. So if you’ve ever had vegan protein powder or purchased a smoothie from a smoothie shop, there could have been some pea protein powder in there.
Ingredients in Green Pea Smoothie with Blueberries
Although most vegan protein powders include yellow and green split peas, this recipe uses sweet green peas. Here are the other ingredients:
- Wild blueberries: Wild berries are are full of antioxidants which is great for skin and good health overall.
- Coconut milk: Coconut milk is full of healthy fats.
- Coconut water: Coconut water is full of electrolytes and is also hydrating.
- Bananas: Bananas are full of potassium and keeps the pH balanced and great for for skin health.
The blueberries are of course packed with antioxidants, coconut water with electrolytes, coconut milk has healthy fats that are great for skin health and one cup of green peas contains a whopping 58mg of vitamin C. That’s more vitamin C than one small orange. Vitamin C plays a major role in collagen production and hence is a common ingredient in skin care products.
That’s a lot of benefits in one delicious smoothie.
It just tastes so good. When you give your body the right tools to do the job, it just can’t help but give you more of what you want. This sweet pea blueberry smoothie is dairy free, gluten free, nut free and sugar free too. Allergens are out and flavor is in.
