Recovery Protein Vegan Shake Recipe

We eat a Vegan diet and exercise often, so we look for easy ways to get more protein into our diet. Protein Powders present an easy method to replenish what we burn through, especially on long runs or bike rides. We craft a Recovery shake starting with a base of Almond or Cashew Yogurt, 2-3 C Ice cubes and one of the following two Vegan Protein powders, which add about 20grams of Protein. We buy Organifi or Intek Vegan Protein Powders. These brands can be found at most health supplement stores. There are other brands that can be substituted based on your preference and taste. We blend all ingredients in a high-intensity blender, but leave it chunky — our preference.
