If you have never tried Spiru-tein it is my top choice of vegan protein powder for smoothies. It is full of great nutrients and has chlorophyl and spirulina. Spirulina is a type of blue/green algae. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, protein and carotenoids (an antioxidant). Studies have found it is good for lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. It is a great source of iron as well.
I blend 1 scoop of the powder with 8oz of almond milk, a handful of frozen strawberries and 1 T. flax seed. My favorite is the Nutty-Berry Blast. The cheapest place to get it is Amazon.
