Pumpkin Pie Shake
We've handing over to the The Plantbased Londoner, Megan Hallett, for a post-workout shake with an autumnal twist...
As a vegan, other people seem to be a little obsessed with my protein intake, even though it’s something I never thing twice about. My diet is packed full of whole, healthy foods, and lo and behold, plants have protein too. However, if I’ve had an strenuous workout, I do like to ensure I’m packing in the protein straight away, and Neat’s hemp and pea protein powder is amazing at helping me do so.
I’ve created a creamy and oh so indulgent pumpkin pie smoothie that you can enjoy post-workout to give those muscles (and taste buds) some extra love. Another unapologetically autumnal recipe? You betcha!
Once you’ve got all your ingredients together, the process is super simple. Simple blend everything up together on a high speed, adding a little more milk if you desire a slightly thinner consistency.
I’ve found that coconut yoghurt makes a great topping for the smoothie and is a great way to add some tummy friendly goodness into your morning (yay probiotic power!). Finish with an extra dusting of cinnamon and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.
