I’ve had a few Sprout Living smoothie recipes on my mind lately, and I couldn’t wait any longer to share them with you! If this is the first time you’re hearing about Sprout Living, well basically they make a line of super nutritious, raw, gluten-free and vegan protein powders. One of my favorite flavors of all time has been their EPIC Protein: Chocolate Maca. Sprout Living recently reformulated their line, and I was eagerly waiting in anticipation to try it out! The first recipe I made with their reformulated Chocolate Maca is for this Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake, which isn’t your standard protein shake. This one is filled with protein and healthy fats, without any artificial sweeteners or color additives. Believe it or not, the color is from raspberries and the sweetener comes from bananas and dates. Read on for the recipe, and to learn more about one of my favorite products from Sprout Living!
As I mentioned before…the new protein line from Sprout Living is even better than the first formulation I tried! A big thanks to the company for sending over samples, and for inviting me to be one of the Healthy Vegan Chefs on their website! If you’re looking for more of my recipe experiments using their products, I actually have quite a few on this blog that you are more than welcome to check out. I’ve made smoothies before with just almond milk, a banana and the protein (and maybe a date or two) and even the simplest combinations have turned out phenomenal.
So what are you waiting for? Go get yourself some Sprout Living Chocolate Maca Protein ASAP. If you’re hesitant to get a full-size flavor, luckily they also come in sample sizes so you can try one of each! I know I can be indecisive at times so it’s really awesome to be able to try each flavor before committing to a full-size.
