After a busy weekend, I can’t think of a better way to kick off this Monday with my favorite power shake. It tastes like a strawberry milkshake and has around 17 grams of plant-based protein. I also used pure vanilla powder for the first time. If you haven’t tried it in your smoothies, I highly recommend it.
Pink Power Shake
Yield: 1 adult or 2 child size shakes Total time: 5 minutes
5 large ripe strawberries
1 cup Silk plain yogurt
1/2 frozen banana
2 tbsp. hemp hearts*
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla powder**
Plain yogurt or coconut milk
Dash of Sprinkles for good measure
Blend ingredients until smooth. Enjoy immediately!
*I used Bob’s Red Mill Hulled Hemp Seed Hearts and loved the subtle nutty flavor it gave the shake. Store the hulled hemp hearts in an air locked container or bag in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life.
** Pure vanilla powder is found in the baking isle at the grocery store. It can be used in smoothies and also in baked goods, pancakes, waffles…the list goes on.
