We’ve all heard about the benefits of eating enough green vegetables, but few of us actually manage to achieve the recommended intake. When you have a busy lifestyle, you can’t always find the time to focus on your own nutrition. 

 

It’s easy for us to grab a slice of toast when we head out the door or pick up a snack at a local café because it’s convenient. Meeting your daily recommended nutritional intake requires planning, which takes up time we may not always have.

 

This doesn’t need to be the case. With new health supplements getting released, we have more opportunities than ever to make sure we’re giving our bodies the right nutrition. Even if you follow a plant-based diet, there are now many supplements that are designed specifically for you. 

For example, you can take a super greens powder, which also offers an easy and convenient way to consume green vegetables.

 

In this recipe, we’ve decided to use two vegan supplements to create the ideal plant-based green superfood protein shake.   

 

Why Use Supplements?

 

The health industry is making strides by introducing more vegan supplements, so that a bigger audience can achieve premium nutrition. While this is great news, you still need to ensure you’re only buying from trustworthy brands. Keep an eye on the ingredient list of any product you’re considering buying – you should be looking for products that are as minimal as possible. Don’t be tricked into paying for a product that’s mainly filler ingredients and offers hardly any nutrition. 

 

The two supplements we are using are a greens powder and Naked Nutrition’s pea protein powder, both of which are suited to a plant-based diet. Pea protein is great for enhancing muscle gains, whereas greens powder offers a whole list of health advantages which may actually surprise you.

 

A greens powder with no hidden ingredients and no additives will be packed full of health benefits as the brand focus is on the nutritional value. Using a healthy greens powder on a consistent basis can: 

 

  • Boost and maintain your immune system 

  • Help reduce your stress levels 

  • Decrease your risk of suffering from serious disease 

  • Promote better gut health 

  • Aid in detox

 

 

Protein Shake Ingredients

  • 1 cup spinach

  • 1 cup almond milk or water

  • 1 scoop of Naked Pea

  • 1 scoop of Naked Greens

  • ½ cup mango

  • 1 banana (frozen)

 

Add the spinach and almond milk or water to a blender, and blend for a few seconds. Follow by adding mango, banana, a scoop of Naked Pea, and a scoop of Naked Greens. Blend again until the mixture is smooth. Enjoy!
