the Road Trip Smoothie

Traveling makes eating well a challenge for anyone, and even more so for vegans. Sure, Fritos and Oreos are vegan, but we don't really want to live on them... right? We always take a cooler filled with good things to munch on along the way, and the most important component is our morning smoothie. It's the easiest way to be sure we get a nice hit of greens and other fresh goodness without having to do a lot of prep. The Road Trip Smoothie has only 6 ingredients at the most, and is easily whipped up in a Nutribullet or other small travel blender.

Road Trip Smoothie

1 banana
1-2 cups mixed greens (buy them pre-washed in a bag)
1-2 cups orange juice
1 T chia seeds
1 T maca powder
2 ice cubes

Place everything in the blender and blend well for a minute or so. If you don't have chia, maca, or ice, no worries. It's good with just the fresh stuff. This is a great way to start your day, especially when you're traveling. It makes up for a lot of the weird road food we sometimes get stuck with when we don't have a full kitchen of our own. Cheers to you!
