Since I've already been making a green smoothie for breakfast everyday, I thought I would just switch it out for this one. I decided to save money I would use the Thorne every other day and alternate with Seeking Health. So far it has worked great! I bought the chocolate flavor protein powder, and it doesn't taste amazing just mixed with water. Not terrible, but not something I'm excited about drinking. The website says to mix it with frutis and vegetables to improve the taste, but I wasn't sure which would make it taste better and which would make it taste worse!
I figured since I already have the know-how about making regular smoothies, I could make a few changes to make it tastier. To turn it into a smoothie, I add quinoa milk, ground flax seed, half a banana, and 3-4 tablespoons of peanut butter (or other nut butter). I think the peanut butter is key- it makes it taste less tart and more delicious. Then I pop it all into my NutriNinja blender.
I actually look forward to it now! Somehow drinking a smoothie is easier than taking the three pills that I have to take for the Thorne Basic Prenatal. You can also pop in other vitamins you take and blend them into the smoothie- no swallowing pills! Perfect.
