4 Vegan Protein Smoothie Recipes to Start Your Day Off Right
Ready to get up and go? Not before you’ve whirled up a yummy smoothie with a scoop of hemp protein powder to overcome that 3 o’ clock slump!
We thought we’d share the scoop on our favourite vegan smoothie recipes that, together with a serving of our high-demand hemp protein powder, can guarantee to keep your energy levels up all day long. The big question is: which will be crowned as the most slurp-tastic?
This Brazillian bowl is jam-packed with berry goodness – a perfect choice if you like your smoothies to be oh so sweet. Made with frozen açaí berries (which are world-famous for their antioxidant properties) and a bundle of other fruits including bananas, strawberries and blueberries, this South American-inspired smoothie is bursting with vitamins, minerals, fibre and flavour – and it looks pretty impressive on your Instagram feed, too (you know who you are).
Our very own dairy-free milk and hemp seed hearts already feature in this exotic recipe, but if you add a scoop of our raw 46% hemp protein powder, you’ll get an extra dose of fibre, omega 3 and complete plant-based protein too! You’re guaranteed to be on top of your game for hours.
Top the whole thing with fresh berries, some coconut shavings or perhaps some homemade granola for a little extra crunch.
To all you PB fans out there: for this, you are very welcome. Let’s face it, it doesn’t get much better than polishing off a pot of peanut butter post-workout (what? it’s high in protein…), but this seriously sumptuous smoothie is right up there.
Throw some spinach, a banana, two tablespoons of peanut butter (preferably palm-oil free), a splash of Good Hemp seed milk and a good ol’ helping of our health hero hemp protein powder into a blender and wallop – you’ve got yourself a super healthy smoothie that’ll keep you satisfied until lunch. Feeling fancy? Pour it into a glass and garnish with a slice of banana and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
The next best thing to tie-dye t-shirts is, well, beetroot tie-dye smoothies, naturally…
Lauren Lovatt of the Plant Academy in East London is who we have to thank for this visually beautiful recipe. This autumnal drink is brilliantly purple and packed full of seasonal produce, including frozen berries and, of course, beetroot. It’s this powerhouse ingredient that brings the smoothie’s vibrant colour and fibre – plus it acts as a natural sweetener compared to the tart berries. Alongside the plant-based protein smoothie basics – Good Hemp seed milk and high-fibre protein powder – this recipe also uses Good Hemp seed hearts to create a delicious sweet cream for the smoothie’s base – yum!
The best part? It takes less than 5 minutes to make!
This one’s for all of us who eat with our eyes. This pretty smoothie was crafted by the very clever Tajda Ferko (aka @myveganminimalist) and makes even the gloomiest mornings feel like a ray of sunshine. You’ll have to try hard to convince yourself that you’re not on a Caribbean beach with this one, since the recipe is brimming with tropical fruits like mango, banana, coconut and a handful of frozen berries. Better still, our hemp seed milk provides a healthy dose of omega 3 and 6 – a few sips and you’ll be flaunting that beach holiday hair as well as a healthy glow, without leaving the kitchen.
Add a couple of spoons full of all-natural hemp protein powder to make this a protein smoothie that will leave you with enough energy to tackle the waves on a surfboard or simply walk to the beach bar and back.
