WFPB Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie


As a vegan, you should probably be getting more beans in your diet. Dr. Greger recommends 3 servings of beans in a day, and while I totally recommend eating as much hummus as you can fit in your body, it’s good to mix it up. I also have noticed that many people switching to a WFPB way of eating don’t like beans, so this protein shake is a good way to get in some hidden beans that I swear you will not even be able to tell you’re eating. What’s great about this smoothie is that unlike processed protein powders, you’re getting the whole bean with all of its glorious fiber, protein (almost 20 grams!), and iron. It makes a great breakfast or pre or post workout snack! This is how we made it:


Ingredients:


¼ cup cooked white beans, drained and rinsed

¼ cup gluten free oats

¾ cup plant based milk

1 banana (fresh or frozen)

2 pitted dates

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tbsp natural peanut butter

1 tbsp hemp seeds (optional)

¼ cup ice (optional)


Directions:


In a high powered blender, add all of the ingredients. Blend until smooth.
