As a vegetarian, I’m constantly getting the question “Where do you get your protein?” and while I might inwardly roll my eyes a little, I jump at the chance to help people understand that plants have protein, too! I don’t need to eat meat or protein bars or protein powder to build my muscles and feed my body. I can get all my protein needs through plants!

So today’s recipe is packed with 100% plant based protein and you don’t need any protein powder!

This tropical protein smoothie bowl recipe has 16g of protein with just the ingredients in the smoothie + toppings. This 100% plant based protein.

There are actually plenty of toppings you could add here, but hemp, chia, and almond are a great blend for texture as well as protein and healthy fats! I also love stirring in some blueberries or extra sliced strawberries on top.
