For those who crave something sweet that feels like dessert but still contains beneficial ingredients, a nourishing protein smoothie is the ideal option. Making such a smoothie in the blender is a breeze, beginning with one’s preferred plant-based protein powder. These are made up of protein isolated from raw ingredients such as brown rice, soy bean, hemp, or seeds that range from chia to sunflower.
Along with the protein powder, add a handful of spinach or other leafy greens, a fourth of a cup of berries, and a cup of non-dairy milk. As a finishing touch, add a teaspoon of MCT oil. This heart healthy supplement is made of easy to digest medium-chain triglycerides, which are typically derived as a concentrate from palm kernel or coconut oil.
