Protein Powder and Smoothie Recipes

Aug 10, 2023

Hi everyone!

A student recently asked me for a recommendation about protein powder. There are SO many options out there to choose from - I understand it may be hard to choose!

I have tested many of the organic options and can highly recommend two different ones - depending on which flavor you prefer: chocolate or vanilla.

My favorite protein powder these days is from Ancient Nutrition. I love the vanilla flavor and use it in this recipe:

Sally's Bright Pink Morning Smoothie

1 serving of protein powder
1 cup of organic orange juice (I love Uncle Matt's)
1 ripe organic banana (at room temp or frozen)
1/2 cup frozen organic raspberries

I blend all of these in my Vitamix blender, and voila! You have a really refreshing smoothie that tastes great and nourishes your body and mind for hours.

Here's a link to buy the Vanilla Plant Protein Powder from amazon, but I highly encourage you to take a look at your local, independently owned health food store to see if they carry it instead! I get mine from Kimberton Whole Foods in Ottsville, PA.


I also get on a chocolate, peanut butter, banana smoothie kick from time to time. For this recipe, I like to use a different brand of protein powder called Ka' Chava (I'll leave a link below)

Sally's Favorite HEALTHY Chocolate Smoothie

1 cup of Oatly full-fat oatmilk
2 scoops of Chocolate flavored Ka'Chava protein powder
1 ripe organic banana 
1 heaping tablespoon of organic peanut butter (optional)
2 ice cubes

Blend all of this in your high powered blender until creamy. Enjoy! 

Here's a link to buy the chocolate flavored Ka'Chava:
