A common question I frequently get asked as a vegan is, "Where do you get your protein from?" - Now, it is true that plants have protein, and you can get more than enough protein by eating a whole foods plant-based diet. But for those of us who are concerned about our protein intake, enjoy a protein shake before or after the gym, or just to have the option of a quick & easy meal - SUNWARRIOR'S illumin8 plant-based protein powder is for you!
illumin8 is a plant-based (100% vegan) meal replacement. It is also organic, which is always a plus in my book. illumin8 is based on the eight building blocks of nutrition - protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, fibers, enzymes, and probiotics. It contains superfoods like baobab, kelp, holy basil, chia, flax, guava, and coconut! Not only is it good for you, but it also tastes delicious!
My personal favorite way to enjoy SUNWARRIOR'S illumin8 plant-based powder is in a smoothie. I personally enjoy the Vanilla Bean flavor, it isn't too sweet with just a hint of cinnamon, and is super easy to make. Check out my recipe below for my favorite way to devour illumin8!
- 1 scoop of illumin8 Vanilla Bean
- 6-8 pieces of frozen mango
- 1 tsp. of cardamon
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- Blend all ingredients in a blender.
It is a super easy breakfast for when you are on the go, or a tasty shake for before or after the gym! I'm really a fan of SUNWARRIOR'S products, you can taste the quality! I definitely recommend checking out these products :)
