Plant protein smoothies

Plant protein powders can be used for snacks or to add nutrients and calories at mealtimes. There are many good plant protein powders. I look for plant-based protein powders like rice protein, pea protein, hemp protein or whey protein.


This pea protein powder has been derived from split yellow peas and has a mild, pea flavour. It consists of complete protein, as it contains adequate proportions of all the essential amino acids.

Pure plant-based protein contains 18 different amino acids, including all 11 essential amino acids. Pea protein powder has no allergens or GMOs. It  is Vegan-friendly; dairy-free.

Plant protein promotes strong healthy muscles & improves stamina. It also help improve muscle recovery after strenuous exercise.

A single serving equals 10g (1 tablespoon).  The daily recommended dose is 20-30g.
