Plant-Based Protein Shake (2 Flavors!)
Plant-Based Protein Shake (2 Flavors!)

When embarking on a new fitness regimen, you may look for a way to supplement your protein intake. 

Though we generally believe that most of our nutrients should come from the whole foods we eat, we understand that when you’re exercising more frequently, you might need to find ways to add more protein to your diet. 

When paired with regular exercise, a protein supplement can help reduce soreness after working out and aid in quicker muscle recovery. 

However, most store-bought protein powders and shakes are highly processed, filled with sugar and unhealthy additives, and based on common allergens like soy or dairy. So we knew we needed to come up with a healthy substitute for your favorite quick post-workout shake.

Without further ado, here are our fave plant-powered protein shakes for a post-workout pick-me-up.

Our Banana Almond Butter Shake is cleanse-friendly and delish, and our Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake is a tasty healthy treat for your post-cleanse 80:20 lifestyle. If you have another flavor combo you’d like us to create, let us know in the comments below!

With love and plant protein power,
