This filling and satisfying vegan blueberry protein shake packs 15 grams of protein and is perfect post-workout.
The main source of protein comes from hemp seeds, a complete plant-based protein that’s easy to digest and contains anti-inflammatory omega-3s, which are much needed after a workout. It’s also a good source of iron.
Additional protein comes from the almond butter and chia seeds. Blueberries and banana add fiber and antioxidants, while coconut oil adds a little extra healthy fat. This smoothie will help repair your muscles after a workout and keep you fueled for hours.
