Homemade, Vegan, Plant Base Protein Powder

I was really tired of watching my boyfriend buy huge tubs of protein powder. If you ask me - most are just overpriced containers filled with lots of processed junk. What is it with boys and their protein obsession!? I thought it couldn't be that difficult to make my own protein mix loaded with pure, unprocessed protein, fats and vitamins - so I did it! I used garbanzo bean flour as the main source of protein, and added additional super foods to up the nutrients and taste. After making a small taste batch, I sifted all the ingredients together into a large air tight jar to last a couple weeks! You can get creative and add your own personal spices/additions to your liking, but this version is a simple and versatile blend that would go well with most smoothie mixes. And guess what - it's still packed with protein, healthier and cheaper than purchasing conventional protein powders. Most importantly, Enrique loves it :)

I've got a few recipes of green smoothies that you can try adding this stuff to :)

    1. Hi Michelle! Sure you can! But this recipie is meant to help replace pre-made protien mixes - for example, you could use chickpea flower, pea flower or pure whey powder instead. Enjoy!
