VEGAN PROTEIN SMOOTHIES

• DAIRY FREE • GLUTEN FREE • NO SOYA • NO ADDED SUGAR •

Seriously though, don’t you love the idea of having a natural protein shake/smoothie instead of raw eggs, or protein powder that lets be real, you don’t actually know how they’ve made it, no matter how healthy the ingredients may look to you. Plus why not have a tasty smoothie as well as gaining the right amount of protein you need from it??

I had someone suggest that I do a post on this so I literally put my maths to work and managed to put together a few smoothies for you that contain between 25-36 grams of protein. It took quite some time considering that I am the WORST at maths. Just realised, that probably doesn’t make this seem accurate to you guys now, but take my word for it, it is.

I am not one to keep track of all the protein I consume a day, to be honest I couldn’t really care, I probably should though right? Anyway, I’m not one of those people who obsess over the amount of calories etc they have a day, I kind of just listen to my body and see what it needs then and there. But that’s mostly because I know that I have a balanced and healthy diet! A lot of you do keep track and I 10000000% admire that, so this is for you.
