Enjoy this protein-rich vegan smoothie for your breakfast. It's healthy and filling with proteins, fiber, and healthy fats. A vegan smoothie to add to your weight loss diet.
Hi hi, my friend, I hope that life is treating you kindly and that despite it all, you are enjoying the gift of being alive today...
We are experiencing a heatwave in France and in some parts of the world, making it hard to cook or eat hot food.
So I thought of proposing you a protein-rich vegan smoothie to build up your body. You see, your body needs a healthy source of proteins, fat, carbs, vitamins, and minerals.
To achieve this goal, it's better to prioritize whole food vs processed. Commercially available protein powders can be seducing as you just scoop them in your smoothies.
But what you might not know is that they can be a cause of health issues over time. Some of these protein shakes do contain metal like arsenic, cadmium, and lead.
That' why I am suggesting to you this vegan smoothie with a budget-friendly protein source that will not only leave you full for some hours but also will nourish your body with minerals and vitamins.
Protein source for this vegan smoothie
- almond milk
- pumpkin seeds
- peanut beans
You can choose nuts instead of peanut beans but prefer using the whole nut instead of nut's butter where possible because they contain more nutrients. Whole nuts have fewer calories than their respective butter.
In the evening if possible, roast the peanut beans for about ten minutes at 180°, when they are almost done, add the pumpkin seed and turn off the oven and leave them in the oven for the next 10 mins.
Roasted nuts & seeds add a very nutty flavor that you don't find in raw nuts. Roasting also reduces the anti-nutrients that inhibits the absorption of some minerals and even proteins in our bodies.
Zucchini in a smoothie
You might be a fan of spinach, or maybe that's the only green you use together with kale to make your smoothie recipes, What about trying something new?
I've got a zucchini smoothie with oats recipe and a lot of you were surprised to see zucchini in a smoothie.
The thing is you don't even feel the taste of it, there's a balance in flavors in this vegan smoothie that you'll hardly tell there's any zucchini.
Zucchini adds dietary fiber and vitamin C together with other nutrients, so go ahead and add zucchini in your future smoothie recipes.
It's a good way to eat zucchini especially matured zucchini.
