This smoothie can be made with any type of protein powder. Some choices are pea protein, whey protein, soy protein, or powdered egg white. Any flavor works, but vanilla or plain is recommended. Also, any type of milk beverage may be used, such as cow’s milk, soy milk, rice beverage, almond milk, etc. You can also feel free to get creative with the additives. We used wheat grass and flax oil to add important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids. But chia seeds, spirulina, or nutritional yeast are also good nutrition hoices to add in.
