3 Pea Protein Recipes | Vegan Protein Shakes

Take a look at our 3 favourite pea protein recipes!

Whether you’re completely committed to a vegan lifestyle or just want to cut down on the dairy, there are so many delicious alternative proteins out there to help you stay on top of your daily requirements.

One of our absolute favourites is the mighty pea protein — not only is it totally plant-based, but it’s also naturally gluten and dairy-free, so a great option for those with allergies or intolerances.

We’re also super-excited to launch two brand new flavours of our Pea Protein Isolate, sweet Strawberry and classic Chocolate. They both offer 21g of complete protein per serving, which means you’ve got a convenient source of all your essential amino acids too — something that’s not always that easy on a plant-based diet.

Our supplement is also low in sugar and has zero artificial preservatives or soy containing ingredients, making it a great fit for daily diet, whatever your goals.
