I received this product from Moms Meet in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
I’ve been on a protein kick lately! I’m definitely trying to eat more protein since it helps me stay fuller longer, and I’m getting creative with how I’m upping it. My latest attempt was with these protein balls made with VeganSmart Protein Powder!
I actually found the recipe on VeganSmart’s website, and decided to modify it a bit. You really only need three ingredients. (The sprinkles are totally optional – though they do make the protein balls just a little more fun.) They’re simple to pull together and they taste REALLY good. I promise.
1 1/3 cups VeganSmart Chocolate All-In-One Nutritional Shake
1 cup all natural peanut butter
1/3 cup agave
Mix the peanut butter and agave in a bowl. Add the VeganSmart chocolate shake powder to the liquid mixture. Make balls of the mix around 1.5 inches. Place on a plate and refrigerate. If you want to add sprinkles, just roll the balls in a bowl of sprinkles before refrigerating. I refrigerated overnight and then placed them in a large bag.
This recipe made about 18 for me, and I usually had 2 for a “serving.” And that bag lasted less than a week in our house.
The Plant Based VeganSmart All-In-One shake is all of that – plant based and certified vegan. It’s low calorie, non-GMO and two scoops of the shake contains 20 grams of protein.
With these protein bites, I found myself eating one or two in the morning. We had a busy week, I am terrible about making breakfast for myself, but I needed something to get me through a good portion of the day. And thanks to VeganSmart, I was able to do that.
I love chocolate. I like increasing my protein intake. When I can do that in the form of chocolate, I am a happy mom. And the thing about this product is I don’t feel bad giving it to my kids. I want to have yummy snacks on hand, without all of the added junk and sugar and coloring. This is the best of both worlds.
A 15-serving jug of VeganSmart All-In-One Nutritional Shake retails for about $36.99 and you can find it at many retailers including Walmart, CVS, The Vitamin Shoppe and Walgreens – just to name a few.
