It’s finally August and with the heat blaring all around the US, the last thing you want to drink is a hot beverage on a summer day. Your first thoughts may be sweet lemonades, ice cream cones, and coolers by the pool but as for me, I love smoothies. Give me all the fruit and a scoop of protein and I’m set.
As an ambassador for Genesis Today, I received a variety of their products and was super excited to try them all and work them into my everyday diet. For those of you who don’t know, Genesis Today is a progressive nutrition company specializing in superfoods that your body can actually absorb. For this recipe I incorporated two Genesis Today products, the Trim Protein and the Resveratrol.
The Trim Protein was the most unexpected protein powder I’ve ever tasted in the best way. Being a plant based, vegan protein, I expected a heavy plant taste and was thoroughly surprised when I took my first sip. The blend of quinoa, amaranth, chia, and other sprouted seeds mixed with superfruits like goji, acai and sea buckthorn creates an awesomely sweet taste that’s not plant-like at all! After downing a 16 gram serving of the protein, I knew it would be perfect for a smoothie recipe.
Now Resveratrol I knew was in wine but I had no idea it could stand alone as well. After skeptically tasting a 1 ounce serving I was surprised to find that it tastes like grapes. Their proprietary blend is packed with 150 times more resveratrol than one glass of red wine which is rather impressive. So if you want the cardiovascular health benefits of red wine but don’t like the taste, then Resveratrol is for you!
To get started, I wanted to add a summery touch to my smoothie. I decided pairing watermelon and papaya along with the #GenesisTodaySuperfoods would be a great health packed punch to create a perfect summertime smoothie. I have to say, this watermelon papaya smoothie turned out way better than my taste buds had planned so I had to share the recipe with you all below.
