MY GO-TO VEGAN PROTEIN SMOOTHIE
This is the smoothie so many of you that have been following me on Instagram love so much! Due to its popularity, I wanted to finally put it on the blog.
I have been making this Vegan Protein Smoothie near daily for over a year now and it is by far one of the greatest additions I’ve made to my diet.
I used to struggle big time with a sugar addiction, to where I NEEDED dessert every single day. That would be fine if it was just a small treat or a couple of cookies, bites, etc. But I had an issue with making batch after batch and could easily finish a tray of cookies in one day, lol.
I felt super addicted and it really started to make me crazy because I could feel that need for sugar. I have been super addicted to sweets for as long as I can remember.
Once I started making these smoothies, I avoided processed sweets for several weeks, resisting it, even though it was super hard at first.
But I truly believe if you have an addiction to something, you need to avoid it 100% until you get it under control, or it will never go away. All I can say is, WOW, it worked! I can honestly say I did not crave sweets at all for months following this change. I started baking again because I always loved to bake, but I would only want a couple of bites and put the rest in the fridge/freezer.
I have never experienced that in my life.
I now can bake and enjoy desserts again, but I truly only want a few bites and I’m satisfied. But I believe it’s because I avoided desserts for quite awhile. I would never tell somebody to avoid any food or sweets because I don’t believe in restriction. UNLESS, it’s something that has taken control over you and you feel addicted and it’s not good for you.
For me, personally, the sweets had control over me. Bottom line, eating too much sugar is bad for our health.
Having these fruit smoothies not only satisfy that sweet craving, they are filling, nutritious, good for you and DELICIOUS!

Vegan Protein Smoothie (To Curb Sugar Cravings)
- 2 cups (280g) frozen strawberries
- 1/2 heaping cup (80g) frozen blueberries
- 3 tablespoons (30g) hemp seeds
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup frozen kale
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1/4 cup raw oats

- water only as needed to blend, about 1/2 cup or so
- I thaw the fruit for about 20-30 minutes (start the thawing during my workout) or so to make it soft before blending so that I don’t need to add too much water-otherwise it dilutes the flavor. It turns out really sweet this way. Only add as much water as you need to blend. I drink these daily.
