If you’re trying to eat a high protein moderate/low carb diet, but are on a vegetarian diet, protein shakes are an awesome way to bump up your protein intake without adding a lot of sugar or grains. One of my best allies is the mighty raw vegan protein shake. The protein takes the edge off the sugar from the fruits, and these shakes are filling but easy to digest.
Here are 3 recipes I enjoy.
SunWarrior Goji Shake
– 1/2 cup Dragon Herbs Heaven Mountain Goji Berries, soaked in 1 cup water until soft (these are the BEST gojis, soft, not hard!)
– 2 bananas
– Fresh orange juice, about 1 cup
– 2 scoops Sun Warrior Vanilla, either Sunwarrior Classic Rice Protein or Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Protein
– Ice if needed
Blend all, adding enough orange juice to reach your desired consistency and sweetness. Serve 2.
Strawberry SunWarrior Protein Shake
4 cups strawberries (or a bag of frozen strawberries)
1 cup almond milk
1-2 scoops Sun Warrior Vanilla, either Sunwarrior Classic Rice Protein or Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Protein
Optional: bee pollen, maca, HealthForce lecithin powder, cacao powder etc.
Blend and serve 1 or 2.
Pineapple Mango SunWarrior Shake
Blend until smooth. Serve 2.
