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 is 100% plant-based protein.

Tropical Protein Smoothie Bowl Ingredients

  • Ice– A little ice helps create a super hcick smoothie.
  • Pineapple– Be sure to use frozen pineapple to make this smoothie extra thick. Pineapple adds sweetness.
  • Mango– Again, be sure to use frozen mango. This also adds sweetnessa and tropical flavor.
  • Silk Protein Nut Milk– This non-dairy milk has tons of plant-based protein.
  • Hemp hearts- These little hemp hearts are hulled hemp seeds and they’re a good source of protein.
  • Almond slices– I love the crunch that sliced almonds add to the smoothie bowl.
  • Pomegranate seeds– These are optional but they add such a pretty pop of color and a lovely, tart taste.
  • Blackberries– Also optional but they add a lovely sweetness!

How to Make a Thick Smoothie

Be sure to use frozen fruit and don’t add too much liquid. If you only have fresh fruit, freeze it overnight. This makes the smoothie super thick.

The Best Smoothie Bowl Toppings

There are actually plenty of toppings you could add on top. I also tried a version with hemp seeds, almond slices, and chia seeds which was great! It added plenty of crunchy and lots of protein and healthy fats. Check out this post for more of my favorite smoothie bowl toppings!
