Maple Pecan Smoothie


It’s a good smoothie when my husband asks me off the bat, is this even healthy?

It’s true. I tried this smoothie and immediately smiled. It’s nutty, sweet, and tastes like Autumn. But it’s also loaded with nutritious ingredients that will keep you fueled for the morning.

Pecans– a great source of magnesium, potassium, and calcium

Medjool Dates– a natural sweetener, full of fiber

Protein powder– Not many of us get as much protein as we need, so any chance I can add it in, I’m going to! 

This is a great post workout smoothie and I find myself craving it more often than not lately. Hope you love it, too!
