The The Best Green Smoothies in this program will provide your body with the essential amino acids it needs to support protein synthesis, including those needed for muscle repair and growth.
Most people like to whip up their protein powder with a little water to keep hunger at bay. It's a popular snack. But I think it's better to have enough calories with meals so we are not hungry for snacks in between.
Vegan Smoothies For Weight Loss
Not only that, protein is also an important nutrient for weight loss. Adequate daily protein intake can boost metabolism and reduce appetite, making it easier to lose body fat without losing muscle.
For this reason, protein smoothies have been shown to help with weight loss, muscle building, and support vegans who play sports, do athletics, or do bodybuilding.
Last but not least, you'll be doing the environment and animals a favour if you choose plant-based protein shakes instead of whey protein shakes.
But don't vegan athletes and bodybuilders need protein powder?
Although I think it would be better for most people to avoid protein powder altogether, it's a better choice to consume high quality plant-based sources of protein.
It's understandable bodybuilders and other sports athletes rely on protein powders because they typically need more protein to meet their needs.
Vegans may find supplements useful, especially if they exercise a lot.
Professional bodybuilders, football players, and other athletes benefit from taking protein shortly after a workout to aid in muscle recovery.
Drinking a vegan protein smoothie daily can help you lose weight, build muscle and improve recovery after exercise.

#1 Greatest Risk in the American Diet
In 2018, there was a study that sparked a discussion about protein powder, especially vegan protein powder, and its association with heavy metals.
The study by a group called "Clean Label Projects" (a nonprofit organisation that brings transparency in food and consumer product labelling) looked at the 134 leading protein brands using data from Amazon and Nielsen bestseller lists.
They were reportedly looking for "contamination with the heavy metals mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium, supply chain contaminants and process contaminants such as BPA."
The study found that "about 75 percent of plant-based protein powders contained measurable levels of lead.
In addition to lead, the plant-based powders also contained mercury, cadmium and arsenic."
So what Do these Findings Mean?
If you're a vegan or simply trying to incorporate more plant-based meals and snacks into your diet, then using plant-based protein powders in moderation is perfectly fine.
But did you know that the vegetable products used in vegan protein powders come from the ground. Because of this, they can bring up some heavy metals from the soil.
What's found in the protein powder is not an added ingredient, it comes from the soil."
So long as you avoid consuming plant-based protein powder multiple times a day, it won't be a problem.
When purchasing a protein powder, always choose brands that are not sweetened with aspartame. You don’t want any chemical sweeteners in your protein.
That means no sucralose or acesulfame potassium, which are the cousins of aspartame.
They can be pro-inflammatory, and some studies have shown they can inhibit growth."
