A filling meal in a glass that will keep your energy up. Use this smoothie to start or end your day in place of a meal. It contains all of the essential macronutrients: protein, fat, carbohydrates and water. Not your average protein source, pea protein is a healthy alternative to soy or whey protein powder with a mild flavor and reports of easy digestibility due to the removal of the fibers that cause flatulence. Pea protein is great for those allergic to dairy or soy. Protein smoothies make convenient meal replacements to help you meet your weight loss goals or just as part of a busy but healthy lifestyle.
