Over this past few weeks I’ve had some requests to share more smoothie recipes. Specifically the two that I’m always posting on Snapchat for breakfast, “The Usual” (coming soon!) and this protein packed backup. I like to alternate between the two depending on the mood I’m in and what my day entails. Keeping a variety is important to me and I avoid getting burnt out on a specific combo by not having it every single day. It’s nice to mix it up sometimes, literally.
When you think of protein powder you might jump to the thought of gritty or chalky flavor. I’m happy to share that most vegan protein mixes have come a long way. There are numerous options to choose from, I know I’ve talked about a couple on my Top Vitacost Must-Haves post. You all know I’m a fan of chocolate flavored powders, but I do change it up and incorporate other blends into my diet. When I’m wanting to bulk up my smoothie and make it more filling, I love to use the Hemp Protein Mix from Vitacost. It’s neutral enough in flavor to not overpower what I add it to and it only contains organic ingredients (which is a huge bonus).
