Vegan Protein Bars are a Smoothie Alternative
Skip the Protein Powder
If protein powders aren’t your thing, then you should try making a smoothie that’s made with foods that are high in protein.
This dairy-free smoothie is made with almond milk (protein), peanut butter (protein), hemp hearts (protein and omegas), and a frozen banana and pineapple to make it smooth and creamy, and to add vitamins and antioxidants.
It’s also super easy to make. All you have to do is put the ingredients in the blender and blend until the pineapple and banana are broken down into a smooth and creamy smoothie.
Tips to Make the Best Smoothie Recipe
Whether you make this vegan smoothie recipe or a different flavor, here are some tips that will help you get it right every time.
- Add the liquid first. This will make it easier for your blender to break down the solids.
- Use frozen fruit instead of ice. Ice melts, and that means a watered down smoothie. Frozen fruit will ensure that your drink is delicious until the last sip.
- Add just the right amount of liquid; not enough and you’ll end up with a smoothie bowl, too much and you’ll get juice.
- Include spinach and/or kale to add extra vitamins and nutrients.
