If you know me, you know that I love my morning smoothie. If you know my daughter you will know she loves them more! With a smoothie obsessed toddler I am alway looking for new and creative ways to get as much into her smoothies as possible. The more protein, the better! That’s why when I was asked to review Deryn’s new e-book. I jumped at the chance!
Vegan protein powders are a great way to get additional protein into your diet. Especially helpful if your active and don’t always have time to ensure your getting all the protein rich foods you need. They are also a great way to add extra flavour to your smoothies too! The rise in veganism has created a new demand for plant based protein powders and there is a whole new catalogue to choose from now!
One of my favourite smoothies from Deryn’s book is the Chunky Monkey Smoothie. I have always been a sucker for a chocolate flavoured smoothie and this one certainly does not disappoint. Combining my two favourite things, peanut butter and chocolate this smoothie was always going to be a winner! Full of potassium, healthy fat, vitamins, antioxidants and protein. This is a great smoothie that only takes five minutes to make and is so rich and creamy. The perfect way to begin the day!
