This smoothie has a ton of vitamins (hello pumpkin!), will boost energy (all about the maca), and keep you nice and full for a long time. And did I mention how goooood it is?

Hello, and happy weekend Thursday! It’s the end of the week for me! I’m off to Seattle with a quick stop in Eugene, OR to meet up with some family for a night. I am beyond excited to visit Seattle being a it’s my first time (other than several layovers at the airport). The weekend will be filled with family, friends, exploring, and most importantly the Oregon Ducks football game!

Blend up 1 frozen banana, 1/2 avocado (promise you can’t taste it), 1 cup almond milk, a few ice cubes, 1 small handful cacao nibs, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 3 pitted medjool dates, some raw spouted protein powder, and some MACA powder (more on its amazing benefits later).
Ok, that’s all I got for ya! I’m off to the great Pacific Northwest! Have a healthy and fabulous weekend!
