My go-to protein smoothie is usually chocolate based, so making this raspberry based one was a welcomed change.

This is a great post workout smoothie as the banana (carbohydrate) helps the body to absorb the protein powder more efficiently.

Having protein with every meal and snack is really important to help balance blood sugar levels, manage energy levels and balance hormones.

Serves one.


  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance protein powder in vanilla
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • Handful raspberries
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds


Mix all together in a nutribullet or blender and voila.  Add more almond milk accordingly if you like your smoothies thinner (I prefer mine on the thicker side).
