Hello you lovely people,
probably one of the most asked questions to vegans: what about the protein?! And you know what? We got plenty of that!
In my #gotprotein project I am therefore showing you different recipes to keep your proteins high as a plant-based eater.
I have been using protein powder to enrich my diet for nearly a year now – for my body type my macros are split this way: High protein, low carb. Even if I wasn’t vegan, it would be fairly difficult to get to my daily protein intake. This is where the protein powder comes in! Yes, protein powder is not just for bodybuilders and gym fanatics 😉
With the help of protein powder, I can easily get to my suggested daily protein intake – but I also have to mention in addition that I don’t always count my macros every day 😉
I have been using the protein blends by PureBlendCo for a few months already now, they are my absolute favourite in flavour and also: they have added superfoods! By using these blends, I get 2 healthy additions into my diet!
One of my favourite ways to enjoy protein powder is in snacks (cause I definitely have a weakness for snacking!), so protein bliss balls are right up my alley!
Here’s an easy & awesome recipe for you guys:
Matcha Bliss Balls Recipe
1 cup almond flour
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp desiccated coconut
2 tsp matcha powder
2 Tbsp Pureblend Matcha protein powder
5 dates pitted + chopped
4 tbsp filtered water
- Add the almond flour, coconut oil, coconut, matcha, protein powder and dates to a food processor (alternatively use a stick blender and a high container)
- Blend the ingredients until the dates become a paste, then slowly add the water in.
- Blend until you receive a smooth paste, transfer into a bowl and set into the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour.
- After 1 hour use a teaspoon and your hands to form the bliss balls. Dust them with a little matcha – ready!
