Vegan Ways To Add More Protein To Your Smoothies the modern day girlfriend

Can I be honest with you?  I know I share a smoothie almost everyday but before I started sharing them here and on my social media, I would never have shared them without this one simple ingredient I wasn’t putting into my morning smoothies.

Want to know what that ingredient is? It’s protein but not your typical protein that you may think of , like milk, whey protein, etc. NO, NO, NO, for me I used vegan proteins made from peas, beans, etc. Every time, I would make my smoothies without it I got so hungry like an hour later but when I started placing protein into my smoothies, I was able to stay fuller longer, etc.

Below are four vegan protein options to add your smoothies!

1. Chickpeas: Great source of plant-based protein, A 1-ounce (28-gram) serving provides about 3 grams of protein. – 

2. Vegan Protein Powders: Like ones that are pea, hemp, pumpkin, based.

3. Peanut Butter/ Nut Butter: Not only does it taste delicious but it is packed with protein just one tablespoon contains 4 grams of it!

4. Nuts: I love to put walnuts into my smoothies not only is a great source of protein but walnuts are great brain food.

5. Vegan Yogurt: Vegan yogurts are full of probiotic bacteria, which is great for your digestive system. Yogurts made from nut milk are rich in healthy fats, antioxidants, protein, fibre, calcium, vitamins C and E, zinc, iron and magnesium.-

1 TBSP Hemp Seed
