Carrot Apple Protein

Ingredients

  • 4 oz carrots - chopped
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 avocado - pitted
  • 1/2 cup cup apple sauce - (one container)
  • 1/2 lime - juiced
  • 1 tbsp pea protein
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

A nutritionally complete meal replacement, this smoothie is not only full of healthy protein and fiber (thanks to the avocado and scoop of vegan pea protein), it has more than half of your daily recommended amount of vitamin C. In addition to antioxidants and fiber, apples are hydrating fruits, containing 84 percent water by weight. Pro tip: For an extra creamy smoothie, or if you don’t have a high-powered blender, lightly steaming the carrots for a few minutes will help them blend quickly and smoothly.
