Berry Smoothie

You know people are always asking where do you get your protein. I know it's frustrating but to you non-vegans who may read this, this shake has about 18 grams of protein. The banana is also good for calcium absorption. More on the protein issue at a later date.

This berry smoothie I made for my husband before he went to work. We usually have fruit smoothies to start the day out. This one consists of 1 lg. banana, 1 cup frozen mixed berries, 3/4 cup soy milk, 1/4 c. organic cranberry juice, 2 T. flaxseed and 2 T. hemp powder.


  1. ugh i hate when people ask me that! People assume you have to take suppliments if you are vegan... duh so silly

    I get plenty of protein and calcium!! That smoothy sounds fantastic!!! i love smoothies :)

  2. I'm surprised whenever I get asked about protein these days, because I always think that that misconception about how hard to is to get vegan protein has been cleared up by now! Anyway, it sounds like an awesome smoothie, regardless.

  3. I love a good smoothie- and it feels good drinking it, as if the nutrients are somehow being absorbed faster! :)
