My Top 5 Vegan Protein Smoothies in June 2018

Last month I experimented more with my protein smoothies, and even baked with protein powder for the first time.

Below are my favourite recipes in June.



Cranberry and Date Protein Flapjack

Last month I attempted my first baking recipe using protein powder.

Despite some difficulty it was an enjoyable challenge, one that was ultimately successful.

Bulk Powders Flapjack

The protein-rich treat is ideal for recovery after a workout.

I experimented with almond milk and pea protein powder to find a mixture that did not adversely affect the taste.

Vegan Cacao and Cranberry Flapjack

This thick and tasty flapjack is ideal as a snack to energise you before a run. It is quick to make, lasts for days and is not too sweet.

After slowly melting 200g vegan spread (vitamin B6 and E) I stirred in 400g rolled oats until they were coated. Away from the heat I added the following ingredients:

250g golden syrup (sugar)

40g organic raw cacao powder (iron, calcium and fibre)

40g dried cranberries (antioxidants)

The flapjack baked in the oven for 30 minutes at 150°C.

Vegan Cranberry and Oat Protein Smoothie

This thick and creamy shake has a sweet oaty taste with a smooth texture. It is nutritious and replenishes your protein and carbohydrate stores.

I blend the following ingredients in a high speed blender for 90 seconds:

100g of dried cranberries (antioxidants)

50g of my favourite pea protein powder

25g of chia seeds (Omega 3 and fibre)

25g of rolled oats (vitamin B1 and carboyhrate)

100 ml of unsweetened soya milk (calcium and vitamin B12)

550 ml of cold water


Tip: Due to the heat of the blender, add ice cubes to make the drink cool. For best results prepare the smoothie and place in the refrigerator before your run.
