Nitro and Protein Smoothie


Between family, work, social, and other day-to-day demands, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. While everyone knows that a wholesome meal is key to good health, many lack the time or motivation to prepare nutritious food, instead finding themselves reaching for quick, empty-calorie options. Looking for nutritious convenience? Allow me to share two easy, delicious smoothie recipes, featuring our mind and energy booster NingXia Nitro™ that are sure to provide the energy and nutrition you need to make the most of every day.

Nitro and Protein Smoothie
This protein-packed treat is the perfect way to refuel after an intense workout or as an on-the-go meal replacement. Formulated with Korean ginseng and B vitamins, NingXia Nitro delivers sustained amounts of energy and alertness. Pure Protein Complete™ and avocado add nearly 15 grams of protein and a boost of omega-3 essential fatty acids to support muscle repair. Plus, the bright taste of fruit and pure Lime essential oil will leave you feeling satisfied and refreshed!
Ingredients:
1 tube NingXia Nitro
1 scoop Pure Protein Complete
4 drops Lime essential oil
½ cup coconut water
Handful of spinach
½ cup diced pineapple
½ cup diced mango
½ cup sliced banana
1 avocado, pit and skin removed
1 tsp. flax seed
½ tsp. Blue Agave
1 cup cubed ice (optional)
Shredded coconut (optional)
Directions: Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until you reach the desired consistency. If smoothie is too thick to blend, add additional coconut water.

Sunrise Nitro Smoothie
If protein and workouts aren’t your focus, the Sunrise Nitro Smoothie is a delicious way to start the day. By providing the necessary nutrients for sustained energy, this delightful beverage is the perfect alternative to your morning cup of coffee. In addition to alertness, this smoothie combines the hydrating effects of coconut water; fiber and omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds; and the antioxidant properties of green tea extract. It’s the perfect way to start an impactful day!
