Plant-Based Protein Smoothie

Creamy Vegan Protein Smoothie Without Banana

A lot of smoothie recipes use bananas for creamy texture, but I’m allergic to bananas! Instead I used frozen riced cauliflower, which is kind of my smoothie superpower secret ingredient. It doesn’t add any funky cauliflower flavor; it just makes your smoothie creamy and adds dietary fiber, vitamin C and folic acid.

All About Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds and sunflower seed butter provide plant-based protein and heart-healthy dietary fiber.  It is an excellent source of vitamin E, folate, copper, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium.  It is also a good source of vitamin B6, iron and zinc. Using sunflower seed butter keeps this Vegan Protein Smoothie totally nut-free! You can also substitute pumpkin seed butter if you prefer.

Hemp Seed Vegan Protein Smoothie Recipe

Shelled hemp seeds, or hemp hearts, are a really great way to add plant-based protein and essential fatty acids to your diet. They have a nutty flavor that is SO delicious in a smoothie! They make recipes instantly more hearty and filling while boosting the nutrition. Hemp seeds also contain vitamin E, potassium, iron, and calcium. They’re high in dietary fiber, making them good for digestive health as well!

Chia Seed Nutrition

Chia seeds are low in calories and offer essential fatty acids (omega-3 and 6), antioxidants, and minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium. This recipe uses a tablespoon of chia seeds, which provides 19% of your recommended daily fiber.  More fiber means you feel full longer and your digestive system will thank you for drinking this Vegan Protein Smoothie!
