This Vegan Peach Protein Smoothie is a healthy and refreshing way to get nutrients. Including vegan protein powder, fiber, fruits, and a secret, undetectable vegetable!
Hello everyone! Happy spring! I have this semester off from school, and I am relishing in all of my free time. Now that I’m on a break, I realize it was much harder to adjust to the rhythm of school than I had thought it would be. During my first undergraduate degree, it was easier to mentally accept the work and schedule because everyone around me was doing it, too. (It also helped to be within walking distance from my classes and library!) But things are much different now. If it weren’t for my husband supporting me, I would be in very rough shape.
During my down time I’ve been working, catching up on a lot of reading, and getting back into the swing of cooking. My husband and I have been going to the gym, so protein smoothies have been giving me an extra boost! I make it a rule to include some form of vegetable in my smoothies (usually kale), but carrots are also a natural choice. They’re sweet and fuss-free, perfect for sunny smoothies containing peaches, mangoes, or pineapple.
This vegan peach protein smoothie makes great use of carrots, balancing out the fresh and frozen peaches and tart orange juice. A big scoop of vanilla protein powder rounds it out with an extra dose of nutrients. If protein powder’s not your thing, a dash of vanilla extra would be delicious too! I hope you enjoy the recipe :)
Vegan Peach Protein Smoothie
This Vegan Peach Protein Smoothie is a healthy and refreshing way to get nutrients, with a secret undetectable vegetable!
- 1/2 Cup Carrots
- 1 Scoop Vegan Vanilla Protein
- 3/4 Cup Water
- 1 Fresh Peach pitted and roughly chopped
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Mango
- 1 Cup Frozen Peaches
- 2 Ice Cubes
- 1 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
- Water to thin if needed
Begin by adding the carrots, protein powder, and water to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until the carrots are completely pulverized.
Then, add in the rest of the ingredients. Try to use the smallest amount of water possible, but add more in small increments if the blender gets stuck.
For a lower sugar option, use 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/2 cup water instead of the full cup.
Once smoothie is creamy, pour into glasses. Top with oat milk or chia seeds, if you'd like.
