Vegan Red Velvet Smoothie

This Vegan Red Velvet Smoothie (named velvet because of its velvety texture) is packed with nutrient dense ingredients to boost energy, stamina, and vitality.  This smoothie is refreshingly tart from the cranberries and creamy from the avocado. The Mikuna protein powder and the Laird's Superfood Creamer provides calcium, magnesium and protein. The sweetness comes from the dates and there is no added refined sugar. It is healthy, wholesome, vegan and bone friendly!
