Homemade Suja Sunset Protein smoothie

Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? I confidently say it’s an improvement from yesterday. The Pilot is feeling much better (thank you for all of the get well wishes for him!), my eyes don’t feel like they’re on fire anymore (three cheers), and we all slept in. It’s like Christmas when that happens.

Thank you so much for sharing your healthy living budget tips this morning! There are so many amazing suggestions in there, and some that I’m going to work on implementing in our house ASAP. As far as getting free workouts at home, I put together some videos for Glutino’s blog with some favorite moves if you’d like to check it out! For food, I forgot to mention that a great money saver can be recreating restaurant or store-bought meals and snacks at home.

I did this one today with an at-home version of one of my favorite smoothies: Suja Sunset Protein!

This smoothie tastes like a delicious dessert and the nutrition stats are awesome (10g protein and 160 calories), which make it a great post-workout option. After scanning the ingredients, I realized they were mostly items we had here at home, so I decided to give it a try.

Ingredients  1 of 1 12

The result: a sweet and slightly spiced protein-packed vegan milkshake. You need this.

Homemade Suja Sunset Protein Smoothie

An at-home version of a protein-packed vegan smoothie!

  • Prep Time: 5
  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 2 1x



  • 1 banana (even better: use frozen)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 1 hour (can also use fresh coconut meat instead)
  • 3 tablespoons hemp protein (or any protein powder you like!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg


  1. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Bottoms up!

You can see how the nutrition stats compare here! My version is higher in protein and fat (probably from adding the cashews) but less sugar. Not too shabby!

Have you made any amazing smoothies lately? What’s your go-to combo?

Hope you have a great night <3

Check in with today’s workout! I’ll be surprising a participant at the end of the month with a new lulu tank + copy of “HIIT It!”
