Everybody’s raging about plant-based smoothies now. Whether you follow the diet to reduce your risk of lifestyle-related diseases, or because you want to better your health and the environment, a plant-based diet is a great option for anyone wishing to cut back on the meat and embrace a healthier lifestyle. As people who follow this diet can attest, one of the best ways to cut the meat but keep the protein is by having a smoothie. Insert Vega. Vega is my favorite brand of plant-based protein powder, bars, and nutritional shakes! Not only are most of their products gluten free, but they are dairy free as well! I use Vega in my smoothies and acai bowls, and when I’m short on time, I mix a packet into almond milk and drink it on the go! The Protein & Greens powder has 20 grams of plant-based protein- that adds up to two servings of greens, with only 110 calories and no added sugar or artificial flavors. Instead of whey or soy protein, Vega is made with a blend of sprouted whole grain brown rice, peas, hemp and SaviSeed. Everything is also non-GMO. You can keep the flavor neutral with their natural flavor, or add some vanilla, chocolate, tropical, or berry flavor!
I’m obsessed with making banana “ice cream” with the chocolate powder and I throw on some cacao nibs for a guilt free dessert!
