Protein is essential for fuelling your muscles recovery and growth for which I’m a huge fan of pea protein for my vegan diet. Now, many are divided in their opinion of the taste of pea protein compared to using whey and I suppose right now it is an ever-expanding niche for those who wish to avoid dairy yet it is often overlooked by major brands because it doesn’t appeal to the masses in the same way. I am a huge fan of pea protein both on its own and naturally flavoured for which Nutristrength have such a delicious range!
Here I have a 1kg tub of pea protein with roasted cocoa for a thick and creamy protein shake that leaves me licking my lips after another hard session in the gym. This protein is 100% dairy free and vegan friendly as well as being an excellent source of amino acids and is created with natural ingredients to assist in the development of a strong and healthy body. The cocoa is rich and vibrant and kicks my cravings into touch without being over-sweet or sickly like some shakes can be.
Available in a choice of three plant-extract flavours, unflavoured, with roasted cocoa and sweetened by classic vanilla there is something to suit all tastes. I mix 32g of protein with 150ml of water for a post-workout recovery shake that pops into my sports bag daily but you can also add it to rice/almond milk smoothies and porridge to boost the nutritional content of your meals. Produced in the UK by two founding brothers this clean and nutritious brand caters for all diets and lifestyles to help everyone to achieve optimum health.
