5 Ways To Use Vegan Protein Blend

So you’ve got your hands on some of our delicious Vegan Protein Blend, that’s a great first step. While there’s no denying that the whole “stick it in a shaker and hope for the best” approach works pretty well — mixing with water alone will still give you a smooth, indulgent shake — we’re here to help you get a little more creative.

These seriously tasty recipes are some of our favourite ways to use the blend — trust us when we say they’re all worth giving a go. It’s a win-win for boosting your daily diet with nutrients too, as hitting your daily protein requirements couldn’t be packaged in a more appealing way.
