This homemade protein shake is a great plant-powered option if you want to save money or avoid unhealthy additives found in store-bought protein powders. It's made with whole foods, is dairy-free (100 percent vegan!) and provides 27 grams of protein per serving.

YIELDS
1 GLASS

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soy milk unsweetened
  • 3 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter all natural
  • 1 banana medium, very ripe
  • 1/2 cup strawberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa plain

Directions

  1. In a blender, add all the ingredients except cooked quinoa. Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds before turning up to high speed until smooth and creamy - about one minute total time spent blending should do it!
