High-Protein Green Smoothie Recipe

What we choose to put in our bodies can have a powerful impact on how we feel, both physically and mentally. The right foods can uplift us, while the wrong foods can leave us feeling sluggish and far from our best.

 

At Garden of Life, we believe that extraordinary foods empower extraordinary health, and that starting your day with nutritious foods can set you up for the day ahead.

This high-protein green smoothie recipe is packed with natural goodness to kickstart your day, thanks to homemade green juice (instructions for this below!), apple, avocado and our Raw Organic Protein & Greens Powder.

 

Raw Organic Protein & Greens Powder

 

Our Raw Organic Protein & Greens Powder is available in both Vanilla and Chocolate flavours and is ideal for adding to shakes and smoothies to create a tasty high-protein breakfast. We recommend using the vanilla-flavoured powder in a green juice or smoothie for a subtle hint of flavour and sweetness.

 

 

This protein powder provides a clean way for you to get plant-based protein and green energy all at once, thanks to organic ingredients including spinach, kale, peas, chia, broccoli, sprouted brown rice, alfalfa grass juice and more.

 

The raw organic plant protein in this blend can help to support healthy muscles, as protein contributes to a growth in muscle mass.

 

Green Juice Recipe

 

Green juice is a key ingredient in this green protein smoothie recipe and it’s really easy to make your own from greens like spinach, kale, cucumber or celery.

  • Wash and slice your greens, then add to a blender along with the juice of a fresh lemon or lime. Add a little water if your mixture feels very thick.
  • When you have a liquid consistency, put this through a sieve or strainer to remove any lumps left over by the vegetables.
  • The liquid that you’re left with is your green juice. Drink on its own or add to our green protein smoothie recipe for even more goodness.
