Healthy Vegan Smoothies – how to dress up your favourite vegetable protein powder

Vegetable proteins sourced from brown rice and pea, are a great alternative to whey-based proteins. Not only are they sourced from healthy whole grains and legumes (rather than dairy), they provide a great opportunity to pair with lovely organic fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts, in a healthy smoothie.

This recipe combines the good fats found in Avocadoes and Coconut Cream, with the sugar balancing (and tasty) effect of Cacao, Cinnamon and plant protein, to provide a tasty vegan treat for your mid-afternoon energy slump.
