Ways to add protein to a vegan smoothie
These vegan smoothie recipes are full of fruits and vegetables, simply packed with nutrients! But because they don’t have Greek yogurt, they have less protein than their non-plant based counterparts. If you’re looking to load up on protein, don’t worry! Here are a few ways to add protein to vegan smoothie recipes:
- Nut butter. The best way to add plant based protein to a smoothie: add a scoop of nut butter! Try peanut butter, cashew butter, or almond butter. For nut allergies, use sunflower butter. Keep in mind that it will slightly alter the flavor and color of the smoothie: so add just enough that it doesn’t overpower.
- Protein powder. We prefer adding natural nut butter, but protein powder is an easy way to load on the protein. Try a vanilla flavored powder to meld into the smoothie flavors. Again, don’t go overboard or the aftertaste will be overpowering.
All you need is 2 ingredients for the easiest, best vegan smoothie recipe! It’s so deliciously simple, you’ll find yourself making it on repeat.
- Place all ingredients in a blender, breaking the bananas into pieces. Blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately or store in a covered jar in the refrigerator for 2 days.
