Why should I make my own smoothie? 🍌

Smoothies are a favourite drink for the health conscious, packing a whole load of nutrients into a convenient and portable drink. However, most store-bought smoothies are made with mostly fruit, giving them a very high sugar content. They're also expensive and tend to contain harmful ingredients such as artificial flavourings and preservatives to increase their shelf-life.

Making your own protein smoothie means you can choose exactly what goes in, using the best quality protein powder, a lower amount of fruit and using plant-based milk instead of dairy. Oh, if you're partial to a smoothie you'll save yourself a fortune too!


What is the best plant-based milk to use? 🥛

You can use any dairy-free milk alternative you like in this recipe - whichever is your favourite! Some of our favourite plant-based milks include rice milk, oat milk, coconut milk, cashew milk and almond milk.


What is Muscle Protein powder? 💪

This recipe uses our Cacao Plant Protein which is a complete source of protein, providing all 9 essential amino acids and 20g plant-based protein in every serving.

Cacao Plant Protein is a blend of 7 superfood ingredients including pea, hemp and pumpkin protein powder, as well as raw cacao and freeze dried coconut for a delicious flavour - with no added sugar, sweeteners or artificial ingredients 🙌
