the pineapple chai smoothie

Who doesn’t love a smoothie in the morning! It’s the best way to get a ton of nutrition in one serving. If you follow hot for food, then you know that I love adding lots of interesting ingredients to smoothies to prevent AM boredom.

I think the pineapple chai smoothie will give you a jolt of breakfast inspiration. It includes Vega all-in-one nutritional shake which is a whole food nutritional supplement that I recommend everyone add to their diet, vegan or not. I don’t use it everyday, but I use it enough to keep my diet balanced and get all the nutrition I need especially if I’ve been travelling or eating not-so-good for a couple weeks. It also helped a lot when I transitioned to a vegan diet.

Right now I’m helping spread the smoothie love with Vega’s smoothie pinnin’ contest! Check out the best smoothie recipes on pinterest and join in the fun to win some awesome prizes. Happy blending!
