RECIPES // PRANA ON – TOP 3 SMOOTHIES

IMG_4998.JPG

I recently found something at the local health food store that has literally changed my mornings. I love a good protein-rich smoothie, but fell off the bandwagon of late as my favourite protein powder supplier had shut up shop, and the majority of stale, additive-riddled products on the market were lacklustre in goodness and unappealing to taste, to say the least.

That was until I came across Prana On. Ok, full disclosure – I am a raving fan! Not only are their products vegan, gluten free, and soy free, but they are also made entirely from plant based and raw ingredients, and mostly derived from organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. I got chatting with the very helpful guy in the health food store, and on his recommendation walked away with a pack of the Prana On Chai Latte Phyto Fire protein powder. I blended a scoop just with water once I was home (the ultimate taste test). I was immediately won over – the flavour is bang on delicious, and Prana On’s Phyto Fire range delivers a wonderful morning kick for those needing a little extra boost.

I’ve since tried the Coconut Milk, Vanilla Creme and Rich Chocolate flavours from their Power Plant protein range, and each one gets top points for full flavour and impressive ingredients. Made mostly from organic/raw/GMO free golden pea protein and brown rice protein, the blend also includes essential amino acids, digestive enzymes, pre and probiotics and natural sweeteners (stevia). At our local store, a 400g bag retails for somewhere around the $35 mark – only marginally more expensive than some other vegan proteins on the market, but so worth it for the flavour and quality. Who wants to drink bad protein…?

Anyway. Before I get carried away on a big ol’ couch-leaping show of love for these guys, here’s my three favourite super-simple smoothies that I’ve been whipping up every morning. So easy with only 5 ingredients each – just pop it all in the blender, pulse it up, and go!

1. THE OOMPA-LOOMPA

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp matcha green tea powder
1 scoop Prana On Coconut Milk Power Plant Protein powder
