Jarrow Formulas sent me their latest Organic Plant Protein, a great vegetarian and vegan alternative to the standard protein powders made of milk-based proteins like whey and casein! A scoop of the powder contains 18 grams of protein, and is a quick and easy way for me to get a pre-workout meal in. The organic sources of plant protein include quinoa, sunflower, hemp, pea, sacha inchi, and coix, which all provide a complete amino acid profile! The Organic Plant Protein comes in three flavors, and the Salted Caramel and Chocolate Mocha are delicious, even with just almond milk! Plus, it is free of gluten, added sugars, and GMOs.
Here is a concoction I like to make with Jarrow Formulas’ Organic Plant Protein in my favorite flavor, Salted Caramel. I add a few extra ingredients to the mix, so that my body gets an adequate amount of calories, protein, and carbohydrates for my workout!
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 scoop Jarrow Formulas Organic Plant Protein powder
- 1/2 cup frozen fruit — strawberries and blueberries
- 1/2 banana
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 tbsp. almond butter
- 1/4 cup oats
- Add all the ingredients together into a blender.
- Mix and enjoy!
