Getting ready for another week ahead, I’ve included the suggested ingredients list for the next 3 smoothies provided. As you will see there are a fair few ingredients that you might have in from last weeks selections and some new ideas.
There have now been 3 different protein powders suggested; hemp last week and now pea and whey all with different benefits, textures and flavours. To consider cost, it might be worth purchasing the small sachets of each as in most recipes long term they can be substituted for each other (or other foods) according to your individual taste and requirements. I personally most enjoy whey protein in smoothies and have had clients that are vegan or avoiding all dairy that prefer say hemp to pea. Others might not notice a difference at all and include the variety to consider the nutritional profiles of each.
