I haven’t been using whey protein isolate lately because I’ve cut out most dairy from my diet, however I did give Vega all-in-one nutritional shake a try and although it was tricky to use at first, this shake recipe is a staple in my daily meal plan. Give it a try!
I really liked how this is truly an all-in-one plant based protein source containing vitamins, minerals, greens (another way to include vegetable in your diet!), fiber, antioxidants and omega’s and free of dairy and gluten. When I first gave it a try I found it slightly pasty… But I found a solution through this shake recipe that can be used a pre or post workout meal. I would most definitely buy it again!
-1 cup packed fresh organic spinach
-1 carrot and chopped (peeled)
-1/2 cup of water
-1 tbsp flax, Udo’s oil, bee pollen or another healthy fat
-3/4 cup frozen blueberries
-1/3-1/2 a frozen banana (peeled)
-1/2 scoop or 18 grams of Vega nutritional shake powder-any flavor (I use half a scoop because it is expensive for the amount that you get and it last twice as long with the same nutritional benefits)
Blend until creamy and enjoy!
