As someone who's super into gym and fitness, protein is a big part of what my ideal diet should consist of. But here's the issue - I'm also vegetarian. No meat, no eggs. Oh, and I quit drinking milk and eating yogurt too. Sooooo yeah, the options got kinda limited and now everytime I tell someone that, their eyes go wide and they say, "What?! No meat? How do you get your protein?"

Well, reality check, it's 2019 and there's great ways to get protein for vegans now! Flax seeds, chia seeds, avocadoes, organic vegan peanut butter...I can't promise that they're the tastiest options on their own, but mix them the right way, and you'll be surprised. Since I'm slowly transitioning into a completely vegan lifestyle, this was my starting point.

These insane vegan protein shakes that are made from completely home-made natural products and regular whey protein powder that you can buy at any nutrition store. I personally use BlueBonnet powder, but honestly any protein recommended by your nutritionist or personal trainer is gonna be just perf. Just pop the ingredients into your mixer and give it a spin! Gotta thank my mum for these recipes, they're totally life-changing!

Sunday 

What you need:

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Almond milk 
  • Peanut butter 
  • Agave
  • Pumpkin seeds 
  • Flax seeds

YES! Half a tablespoon of peanut butter is literally the best tasting vegetarian protein, and it 100% makes your shakes tastier. It's the first day after the weekend and it's back to the weekly grind! This shake has the perfect tanginess of berries to wake you up with a burst of juices. Even better, the soothing taste of agave and peanut butter balance out the sourness of the berries for a wholesome fruity sweet taste.This shake can be had with almond, soy, or oat milk, and can be mixed with your regular protein powder intake.

Monday

What you need:

  • Bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Chia seeds  
  • Flax seeds

Okay, second day of the week and you need to power through with that energy. This shake is extra healthy because it contains seeds that promote hair and nail growth (I used to have mad hairfall until my homeopathy doc recommended chia and pumpkin seeds, and I'm rollin' now). Add the fruity taste for  a thicker texture to make for a really filling (and tastier) drink. Late for work? Make this quick drink for a healthy breakfast! This shake can be had with almond, soy, or oat milk, and can be mixed with your regular protein powder intake.

Tuesday

What you need:

  • Avocado
  • Seedless dates
  • Flax seeds
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts

If y'all are fans of dry fruit, this is the shake for you. 10/10 would recommend, since this protein contains the most essential forms of nutrition for a vegan - seeds and fruit. It's halfway through the work week and you're getting a LIL' sleepy and tired. Dw, I gotchu.  Avocado makes the texture smoother, and if you don't like the neutral kinda taste, add peanut butter or honey. This shake can be made with almond, soy, or oat milk, and can be mixed with your regular protein powder intake.

Wednesday

What you need:

  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter 
  • Flax seeds 
  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds

Happy hump day y'all! You deserve a lil' treat - go for this amaze healthier banana-peanut butter milkshake rip-off. It'll satisfy your sweet tooth in the healthiest way possible, and the creaminess of the sweet products will totally improve the taste of the seeds. This shake can be had with almond, soy, or oat milk, and can be mixed with your regular protein powder intake.

Thursday

What you need:

  • Berries
  • Walnuts
  • Almonds
  • Seedless dates
  • Chia 
  • Sunflower seeds

It's the weekend FINALLY! We gotta keep you up and runnin' for the after-parties and outings you're gonna have this weekend. This energizer shake is not only going to give you the fruitburst of berries, but will give you some super essential Omega 3 from the dry fruit and seeds. It's tasty too, I promise - or else add half a tb/sp of honey and see the magic. This shake can be had with almond, soy, or oat milk, and can be mixed with your regular protein powder intake.

Friday:

CHEAT DAY!

Saturday:

What you need:

  • Strawberries

Ok, ok I hear you, it's the weekend, you deserve a fat treat. This is my healthy version of a strawberry-peanut butter shake, and you could add a hint of nutella just for fun! This shake can be made with almond, soy, or oat milk, and can be mixed with your regular protein powder intake.
