Today I will share with you my favourite smoothie recipe – the Orgain Protein Powder Smoothie recipe. It is so delicious and creamy and healthy and once you start making this, you will never go back!
A few years ago, when I was vegan and actually spending quite a bit of time working out, I was looking for Vegan Protein Powders to incorporate into my diet. I would check out some of my favourite stores like Whole Foods and buy any vegan protein powder that looked good and test it out. I think I wasted a lot of money trying new protein powders and not liking any. At GNC, you can return your protein powder if you don’t like it. However, I hadn’t heard of GNC back then and stuck to my favourite health food stores.
One day, at London Drugs, I came across another vegan protein powder brand called Orgain and purchased it, with no real hopes it would be good and looking forward to another disappointing purchase.
However, it surprised me and I was not disappointed!
It was so delicious. I had purchased the chocolate flavour and it was amazing! Since that day, I stuck with the Orgain Protein Powder and continued purchasing it. However, eventually London Drugs stopped carrying it, but thankfully, Costco in the States carried it, so my mom would grab me some when she went for her grocery runs.
This continued, until I moved to Toronto.
No stores carry Orgain protein powder here, or they didn’t when I moved back in 2016. And the other big disappointment was I couldn’t even grab some quickly from the States since the US border is a 2-3 hour drive from our home.
Anyways, my mom brought me a few tubs of Orgain protein powder when she visited and it is honestly the best gift ever. But eventually we will run out and will need to buy some online! I found LuckyVitamin to have the lowest price online.
Currently, as of September 2017, we have seen the Vanilla flavoured Orgain Protein Powder at the two Costco locations near our house! So if you live in Brampton, Vaughn or Mississauga, check out the closet Costco and you will find some right now! Hurry, before my sister in law buys all the tubs 😛 The vanilla flavour is her personal favourite.
Now on to the recipe for my favourite Orgain Protein Powder Smoothie:
1 cup almond milk
4 ice cubes
1 tbsp peanut or almond butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 scoop Chocolate flavoured Orgain Protein Powder
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender (I personally love the Vitamix) and blend.
This Orgain Protein Powder Smoothie is seriously the best smoothie you will ever make. It literally tastes like a chocolate peanut butter milkshake! But it’s healthy 🙂
