Protein powered green smoothie recipe

Start your mornings with this energy boosting Green Power Smoothie.

Ingredients

  • ½ pineapple (whole pineapple)
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves (1 cup = 225 g)
  • 1 orange (1 tablespoon = 15 g)
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp LVL moringa powder
  • 1 tbsp LVL aloe vera powder
  • 1 tbsp LVL chia seeds
  • Fruit and chia seeds for decoration

Instructions

1. Place all ingredients in a food blender and mix until smooth.

2. Serve topped with more chia seeds and fruits.

This smoothie provides you with that extra kick you need because it's packed with:

Spinach: rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A, C, E, K and fiber. It's one of the most nutrient-dense green leafy vegetable and every 100 g of Spinach contains 2.9 grams of protein.

Chia seeds: rich in vitamin B and minerals, and are full of antioxidants as well—helping the body cleanse itself from harmful radicals. In addition to this, every 100 g of Chia seeds contains 17g of protein.

Moringa: rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and they're a great to boost your energy without all the caffeine! (They also have four times the vitamin C content than oranges). Moringa's also one of the richest form of plant protein as it contains all 9 amino acids (you can read more about the importance of amino acids in our How to get protein on a vegan diet article. 100 g of Moringa leaves contains 25 g of protein.

Ginger: boosts blood circulation and metabolism thus providing you with more energy, and,

Aloe Vera: improves skin health.

1 cup baby spinach leaves (1 cup = 225 g) does not sound right. 1 cup spinach will never weigh 225 gms unless cooked. Please check again!

I don't see how this is "protein powered". The title or the ingredients could be change accordingly.
