Black Eyed Pea smoothie – hip hop and healthy!

Black Eyed Pea Smoothie – Hip Hop and Healthy!

This smoothie was spun up on my kitchen turntable as a tribute to the masters of hip hop and I am confident Fergie and Will.I.Am would enjoy it as much as we do here at FabFeb! Its healthy, low sugar, and protein packed because of its two main ingredients – peas and chia seeds. If you are familiar with chia seeds you’ll know they look like little black eyes. What more can I say!

The protein per serving in this smoothie from the peas, seeds and nuts totals around 0.46 ounces or 13 grams, which is a bit more than you would get from 2 eggs.

Enjoy.
