Lower Calorie Raw Phyto Protein Recipe
In a blender, combine:
2 scoops Creamy Vanilla Protein Powder
* 2 very ripe bananas
16 ounces (2 cups) almond-coconut milk
** 1 tbsp. raw, certified organic coconut paste
*** 1/2 tbsp. hemp oil
1 cup of ice cubes
**** 1/4 cup (35 grams) cashews
* Reducing the bananas from 3 to 2 provides less sugar and calories (180 vs. 270), but still offers a sweet taste along with the other ingredients (like the semi-sweet protein powder).
** Reducing the coconut paste to 1 tbsp from 2 tbsp still offers a creamy consistency but halves the calories from 100 to 50.
** Reducing the hemp oil 1/2 tbsp from 1 tbsp offers the benefits of hemp and creaminess, but halves the calories from 120 to 60.
*** Reducing the amount of nuts from ½ cup to ¼ cup still offers the rich taste but halves the calories. Switching the pecans for cashews offers more protein and fewer calories: ¼ cup cashews = 185 calories, 67% fat, 12% protein & ¼ cup pecans = 230 calories, 93% fat, 5% protein.
