Blueberry Protein Smoothie

Yay! I’ve gotten back to blogging, its been very difficult to balance school, ballet, and blogging and unfortunately, blogging has been taking a back seat to school and ballet 😦 But, thankfully, everything is starting to come to a close.  Ballet will be over tomorrow and I graduate high school in a week.  There’s a feeling of nostalgia that has been passing over me lately.  I will be going to college next year, and officially closing the door on my professional ballet career. While this was an incredibly difficult decision to make, it is also very liberating to know that I have a thousand possibilities waiting for me. I’m beyond excited to start college and start a new chapter of my life.  As I look back on the past few years, I learned so much about myself and who I want to be.  Everything is going to change drastically.  High School is going to be over soon and college awaits, and while I am so scared about what lays ahead, I’m excited to embark on a new adventure.

So now that you have that little update on my life, I thought I’d give you all a great protein smoothie recipe because right now smoothies are all I seem to be able to handle.  I recently got hemp protein powder from Manitoba Harvest, and I am loving it. I wanted to get a plant based protein powder just because I’ve never used protein powder before and figured I’d rather play it safe and stick to plant based stuff.  Also, I freaked out when I saw it was hemp protein powder because hemp seeds are one of my favorite supplements and I put them in practically everything. If you’ve seen any of my other smoothie recipes you know hemp seeds are always included.
