7 healthy vegan protein smoothie recipes: Plant-based protein smoothies

7 healthy vegan protein smoothie recipes: Plant-based protein smoothies | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
Protein shakes are easy enough for vegetarians to whip up, but if you're vegan and you want a protein-packed smoothie after a workout or for a hearty breakfast, you might be wondering where to find the best sources of this macronutrient to include in your meal. The answer is in the right seeds, nuts and protein-rich fruits and vegetables. This collection of smoothie recipes provides you with great, flavorful ideas for protein smoothies both with and without plant-based protein powder. These smoothies range from 10 grams to 40 grams of protein, with suggestions on variations.

Some tips for getting started with smoothies:

It's great to keep a stock of frozen fruits in the fridge. I always have a few containers of frozen sliced bananas. I put one sliced banana in one Weck jar, so I know exactly what my serving will be. You can freeze your own, or buy bagged organic frozen fruits. But having a stock of bananas, mango, berries, and other favorites is a great way of making sure you can toss a smoothie together at a moment's notice.
Grinding your own chia, hemp and flaxseed as you use them is a great way to get the most nutrients. It also helps work as a binder to thicken your smoothie. Keep whole seeds in the fridge, and use a coffee grinder to grind up just the tablespoon or two that you'll be using in a smoothie right then.
Also important to have on hand for smoothie making are non-dairy milks. Most of these recipes call for almond or coconut milk, but you can experiment with oat, flaxseed, hemp and soy milks as well.
Toppings make a smoothie feel like an extra special treat. Some great toppings to have on hand include cacao nibs, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and sunflower seeds. (Text: Jaymi Heimbuch)
