Vegan Red Velvet Smoothie

Vegan Red Velvet Smoothie


Oh, red velvet. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways: it's chocolatey, but not overwhelmingly bitter. It's eye-catching, but not ostentatious. It's a creamy and delicious flavour that needn't only be reserved for the likes of cupcakes and cookies. You too can drink a delightfully decadent red velvet smoothie for your pre-workout without regrets, just happiness. In this recipe by PumpUp member xxzxcuzx_me, ripe bananas and coconut milk creamer lend a thick and creamy texture to the drink while chocolate hemp protein powder imparts a distinctly velvety flavour. You can have your cake and eat it too.

Red velvet smoothie

  • ripe bananas
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • Splash of vanilla coconut milk creamer
  • 4 tbsp chocolate hemp protein powder

Have your cake and eat it too with this red velvet chocolate protein smoothie
