Protein is essential for building lean muscle and maintaining hair, skin and nails which being vegan I struggle to consume enough of as I don’t have eat meat, fish or dairy. Protein shakes make a great post-workout nutritious snack to aid in muscle recovery, can be stirred into porridge and berries for a healthy breakfast or taken in place of naughty treats as Strippd have a delicious range of vegan-friendly flavours as well as whey!
Being dairy free, gluten free, GMO free and made using only natural organic ingredients each Strippd shake provides 22g of protein per serving, the equivalent to six egg-whites, with only 115 calories. Containing no fillers or chemicals the shakes base their honest clean contents on pea protein, hemp protein, Yerba Mate extract – a South American natural caffeine and immune system booster – L-Carnitine and CLA to provide a daily dose of important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants whilst supporting a healthy vegan/lactose intolerant diet.
To prepare my protein shake I mixed 250ml of oat milk – you can use water, coconut water or soy milk instead – along with a whole 35g vanilla sachet in my shaker which I shake with the lid closed until all of the powder has dispersed. The shake is medium-thick in density with a deliciously light and mellow vanilla flavour that disguises the pea protein perfectly as it can be a bit of an acquired taste for some. A filling delicious shake for a post-workout kick that quashes cravings and fuels my healthy active lifestyle. What’s more, the Strippd vegan range is available in vanilla, berry and chocolate flavours to suit all tastes; what more could a girl ask for?
