This intense workout high protein smoothie is perfect for those of you who are working out or just want to increase your daily protein intake.
I started working out, so I began looking for high-quality vegan protein sources to add to my diet. I discovered that there are so many amazing superfoods you can add to your smoothies and make them high in proteins and just perfect for intense workouts.
Hemp seeds are my absolute favorite! Also, nut butters, and chia seeds are pretty good too. Costin also adds spirulina in almost every smoothie he drinks. Yes, I know spirulina is an amazing source of proteins, but I just can’t stand its taste or smell! I only tolerate it in low quantities, 1 tsp or so per smoothie, not 1 whole tablespoon as Costin wants! 😛
So, no green spirulina smoothies for me. I had to find a high protein smoothie recipe which would also taste good. Here it is!
Give it a try and let me now if you liked it as much as I did! 😀

I used my Optimum Blender for this recipe!
