The inevitable question that every vegan is asked. Whether you’re a full time vegan or doing Veganuary for the first time this year I can guarantee that you’ll be asked this question on more than one occasion.

There are plenty of plant-based sources of protein – lentils, beans, quinoa and soy to name but a few. However, smoothies are an easy and delicious way to get some extra protein in your diet. You can opt to use a protein powder or add natural high protein ingredients such as chia seeds, nuts or hemp hearts to your smoothie for a great start to the day.
