I mentioned recently that protein smoothies are having quite a moment in the spotlight. This is most likely due to the fact that smoothies are easy to make and consume on the go, and that folks are realizing the importance of giving their bodies healthy food to support the healthy activity that they participate in. The vegan diet has long received criticism for lacking protein, though most vegans will argue with scientific evidence that if you balance the food that you eat, you can find plenty of protein in plant based products.
Everlast, the company commonly associated with boxing and fitness wear is launching a new vegan protein powder that is sure to please both vegans and non-vegans alike. One serving of the Everlast Vanilla Vegan Protein packs 22 grams of protein to support muscle growth and cellular functioning. I have partnered with the good folks at Everlast to produce today’s smoothie recipe that is purely plant based and tastes like a peach sorbet treat.

For the celiac folks reading, the powder was produced in a factory that packages products that contain milk, eggs, wheat, and soy. I have celiac sprue disease and tend to be highly sensitive and did not experience any issues with this product. Each individual experiences allergies in a different way, thus I caution you to read all packaging carefully.
Take care and make your day great!
