One of my new years resolutions was that I wanted a healthier lifestyle and diet. I've come to the conclusion that I would like to have more of a plant based diet. I am not saying I am vegan or even vegetarian, just that I am trying to cut out all that is not good for me and eat healthier food.
I love having a smoothie either in the morning or throughout the day as a snack, so when I was sent this Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix I knew it would be perfect to blend in. The packet is also resealable which is perfect to just plop in the cupboard.

I started by gather all my ingredients together (I ended up not using the pear and using 2 bananas) -
2 bananas, 1 passion fruit, 1 peeled apple, 2 teaspoons of chia seeds and as suggested a heaped tablespoon of smoothie mix (I would suggest adding half then adding more if you want, as I found the flavour quite overpowering).
I then found this a little too thick so I added some milk as I didn't have anything else to hand. I would suggest adding, almond milk or coconut water instead.
The result was really good but I did find the mix quite overpowering. So I've learned just to add a little then build it to your desired taste, instead of just adding the heaped teaspoon.
Indigo Herbs are also fully supportive of Veganuary, a global campaign inspiring people to try vegan for January.
I hope you've enjoyed this yummy fruity smoothie and try it out for yourself,
