14 Vegan Protein Smoothies | Hurry The Food Up

Smoothies are a great way to get protein, because they’re so easy to make, and, if done right, absolutely delicious as well. Pick your protein source, then dress it up with natural sweeteners or fruit, and drink it all down in one!

Breakfast, sorted!

Vegan protein smoothies: plant based protein

Everyone is always yakking on about how hard it is to get enough protein as a vegan. Bring me solutions people, not problems!

We have lots of compilations which show the many ways of consuming vegan sources of protein. We’ve got vegan high protein dinners, vegan high protein lunches and vegan high protein snacks!

Now we take on vegan protein smoothies! What sources of protein are we finding in these healthy vegan smoothie recipes?

Protein powder is a big player. Some people aren’t fans of protein powder, I think often from fear it is unnatural. Which is a fair point, there are plenty of unnatural, processed protein powders out there (we like to stick to natural ones when we make recipes with protein powder)!

However, there are also lots of natural vegan protein powders on the market! They are a good option for a smoothie, because they (literally) blend right in.

Protein and muscle mass

There’s a lot of stuff out there about how you need to bulk on protein if you want to gain muscle or increase the amount of exercise you are doing.

We thought that we should address this, because while there is some truth to it, this isn’t entirely the case.

It is important to make sure, if you are trying to build muscle or have a very active lifestyle, that you are getting enough protein.

This is because protein is fundamental to building and maintaining muscle, so if you want your body to grow muscle or use them more than usual, you need to make sure it is equipped with the right stuff.

If your focus is specifically on building muscle, then between 1.6-2.2 grams of protein per kg of body weight seems to be the sweet spot.

Try high protein vegan smoothie recipes for weight loss!

We know that lots of our readers are interested in healthy weight loss. So I thought I’d talk a bit about why you might want to try high protein vegan smoothie recipes for weight loss (the same goes for all smoothies for weight loss).

Protein is a generally important part of any diet, but particularly if you are trying to lose weight.

First of all, it’s good to be eating as healthy as possible on your weight loss journey, because you want your body to be at full capacity. If you’re feeling fit and healthy, you are less likely to give up!

The other reason is that protein is very filling. Protein rich foods will keep you full for longer than foods with little protein in them. If you are full between meals, you are less likely to snack and therefore more likely to maintain the slim calorie deficit you should be aiming for.
