Indigo Herbs Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix*

Indigo Herbs are one of the proud supporters of Veganuary 2016, a campaign that encourages people to go vegan for the month of January. I feel like there's now so much more awareness of a vegan lifestyle and it seems to me that more and more people are choosing a cruelty free lifestyle and opting to go vegan.

Indigo Herbs Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix - My General Life

As most of you will know, I went vegetarian earlier this year and I honestly love it, I can't imagine going back to eating me. I haven't yet taken the leap to a vegan diet, although it's something that is definitely on my radar and Veganuary is definitely something I'm very much considering joining in with.

Anyway, Indigo Herbs very kindly sent me their Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie mix with the challenge of using it to create a yummy smoothie recipe - challenge accepted!

I'm not a huge smoothie maker, although I'm not really sure why as I do really enjoy them. I personally prefer fruity, juicy smoothies, rather than milky ones and so that's what I've created today. I think I'll call it "The Festive Smoothie" as it was inspired by festive flavours including clementines and cranberries.

INGREDIENTS:
*handful each of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries (can be frozen or fresh)
*2 clementines - peeled and any seeds removed
*150-200ml no added sugar cranberry and raspberry juice
*one heaped tbsp of Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix

Blitz and go!

So what does the Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix actually contain and what will it add to your smoothie? It's made up of all organic ingredients, including spirulina, maca, chorella, chia seed protein, pumpkin seed protein, wheatgrass, moringa and baobab amongst others. It will add around 46kcal to your smoothie along with just shy of 5g of protein and lots of micronutrients including iron, vitamins B2, E, A and C, calcium and magnesium. It also adds a nice little hit of fibre to your day with just shy of 4g per serving. It certainly packs a nutritional punch without impacting on the fruity flavours like other superfood powders that I've tried.

Is the Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix something you'd give a try to get an extra nutritional kick? Also, what are peoples thoughts on Veganuary? Who's going to be giving it a try? I'd love for you to share your thoughts either in the comments below or you could drop me a tweet @mygenerallife.
