The Naked Shake and getting more protein in your diet as a vegan
I’ve been working hard to get more protein in my diet lately. Of course, as a vegan the biggest question I get asked is “where you get your protein.” I know, we’re all sick of it. But, as I’ve tried to seriously up my protein game for weight loss, I’ve struggled with cramming enough into my eating without feeling overly full. Enter Naked Nutrition.
Naked Nutrition’s vegan product line
Naked Nutrition offers more than 50 products, including vegan ones. What I love about them is that there isn’t a lot of junk in the ingredients. In fact, most of Naked Nutrition’s products have three ingredients or less. Their goal is to give people control over their health and fitness journey, therefore they use pure ingredients.
Vegan protein in Naked Shakes
First, let’s dive into Naked Pea. This product doesn’t have much of a taste so it’s easy to sneak it into smoothies or dishes like oatmeal without knowing it’s in there. With a whopping 27 grams of protein per serving and only 120 calories, this was my go-to to get in protein on most days.
PB Blueberry and Vegan Protein Powder
But, I loved the PB Blueberry and Vegan Protein Powder from Naked Pea. The flavor isn’t overpowering, but it’s a nice addition to smoothies or oatmeal. While it is less protein than the Naked Pea, I liked the flavor it added. Protein in the powder is 20 grams and 150 calories.
My favorite Naked Shake recipe
As I got to experiment a little with the products, I started toying around with different fruit combos in my smoothies. It’s super quick and easy to toss in some berries, kale and scoops of the protein powder into a Nutribullet.
And, I got into oatmeal. There’s a protein oatmeal from Trader Joe’s so I used that to make hearty oatmeal. Combine it with Naked Shake and you’ve got one protein-rich meal that will keep you full for hours.
- 1/2 c Gluten Free Organic Rolled Oats with Ancient Grains & Seeds from Trader Joe's
- 2 scoops (5.8 tbsp) PB Blueberry Vegan Protein from Naked Shake
- 1/2 cup mixed berries frozen
- Boil 1 cup water and then add in oatmeal and fruit
- Stir continuously for one minute
- Remove from heat and stir in Naked PB + Blueberry powder. If too thick, add more water. Let sit for two minutes
If not using this brand of oatmeal, follow instructions for the oatmeal you are using. If you want to add in more nutrients, then add 1 tbsp chia seeds during the cooking of the oatmeal and top with 1 tbsp flax seeds when serving.
