This smoothie is a game-changer. If you are a fan of salted caramel then you will love this. The ingredients can all be adjusted to suit how you like the consistency of your smoothie. For me, I prefer a thicker consistency so it becomes more like a thick shake. Blessed Protein by Clear Vegan, is a vegan protein that includes pure golden pea protein. One scoop of Blessed Protein contains 23g of protein, with only 4g of carbohydrates - making it an incredibly lean protein.
So why is protein intake important? Protein contains all the essential nutrients your body needs to build lean muscle - through a process called Muscle Protein Synthesis. Without sufficient protein intake, your body can neither build nor repair the way it needs to. Protein, therefore, becomes a key dietary factor and nutrient for absolutely everyone in the fitness industry - but particularly so for vegans, who tend to have a lower overall protein intake due to the plant-based diet.
Therefore, if you are vegan (or even if you’re not) and you’re struggling to ensure you are getting enough protein in for the day, Blessed Protein, as a premium plant-based protein supplement, would be perfect. And, when it tastes like a salted caramel smoothie, how could you pass it up? 😋
Here comes the magic - how to make your Protein Powder taste just as good as heaven. Make it into a smoothie! This smoothie is still incredibly low fat and low calorie, high in protein and high in delicious. It is also 100% vegan-friendly, plant-based and all-natural - simply recruiting a little added banana for some extra sweetness, almond milk for creaminess, and Ice for thickness.
