Whether it is running, cycling, swimming, hiking, long walks or some mix of all or some of them.. Vinny and I keep active. Fueling and replenishing our bodies after a long bike ride or run means consuming a bit more protein. We have tried Vega and Raw Protein but our favorite protein powder is by MCT Lean. The taste is on point. We use it in shakes and smoothies as well as baked good (stay tuned for protein packed recipes). A little extra protein does the body good! The possibilities are endless with this powder. Below is our favorite smoothie recipe featuring MCT Lean Vanilla Vegan Protein Blend. The kale, ginger and banana make this protein smoothie delicious and with 27 grams of protein, filling!
Green Protein Smoothie
2 Scoops MCT Lean Vegan Protein Blend Vanilla
½ tablespoon MCT Oil
1 tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
1 tablespoon Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds
1 ½ cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 medium Banana (frozen bananas work well and make the smoothie cold)
1 cup Raw Kale
1 teaspoon Ginger
½ tablespoon Chia Seeds
- Add almond milk to blender. I prefer the Nutribullet. Adding the almond milk first prevents the dry ingredients from sticking to the sides of the blender.
- Add all other ingredients.
- Blend till smooth.
