Pea Protein Powder Smoothies

Fuel your body with these pea protein powder smoothies!


Pea protein powder is a great supplement to add to your recipes, as it’s a high-quality protein and a great source of iron.


It contains all the nine essential amino acids that your body cannot create and must get from food, including arginine which promotes healthy blood flow and heart health — and leucine, isoleucine and valine — which promote muscle growth.


Benefits


Builds Muscle Mass: if combined with consistent resistance training, pea protein powder can help build muscle mass.

Good for Heart Health: some studies show that it may reduce some of the risk factors for heart diseases, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Good for the environment: Pea proteins require less water in their production and extraction process, making pea proteins a more environmentally sustainable food source than its counterparts (animal and soy protein).

Side effects


Pea protein powder is generally well tolerated and unlike whole peas, it’s relatively low in fiber and does not cause bloating.

Depending on the composition, it may contain higher levels of sodium so if you are on a prescribed low-sodium diet make sure to check the labels.


To increase iron absorption, pair your smoothie with Vitamin C rich food (citrus fruit, melons, strawberries, dark green leafy vegetables).
