Simple yet satisfying, this Chocolate Almond Vegan Protein Smoothie will hit the spot on a busy morning when you need breakfast on the go.
It can be made with either Vanilla or Chocolate Almond Milk but for an extra chocolatey taste we recommend using Unsweetened Chocolate Almond milk. Made with our NEW Boomer Nutrition Organic Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder, you get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.
Almonds are one of our favorite go-to snacks. One 23-almond serving packs 13 grams of healthy unsaturated fats, 1 gram of saturated fat and no cholesterol or salt. Did you know, of all tree nuts, almonds rank highest in protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin and niacin?
Using Almond milk as a base for smoothies or shakes is a great way to get the added nutritional benefits of almonds.
In addition to adding potassium and more fiber to any protein smoothie, I find just half a banana adds enough natural sweetener to enhance the flavour of every Vegan Protein Smoothie it is added to. The banana flavour can be overpowering when added to a Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Whey Protein Powder smoothie, but adding it to a smoothie made with Organic Vegan Protein Powder is flavour changer that takes it from tasting good, to tasting great.
