An Easy Way to Power Up Your Morning Smoothie or Short Stack With Plant-Based Protein

December 27, 2016

Have you had a chance to think about your 2017 resolutions yet? A lot of us here at Thrive HQ are aiming to eat more plant-based meals, cut back on processed sugar, and amp up our workouts.

It’s a little ambitious, perhaps, but we have a secret weapon to help us deliver on all of our goals.

Enter Orgain Organic Protein, a plant-based protein powder that has no added sugars—just one naturally-occurring gram per serving—plus 21 grams of protein (from chia seeds, brown rice, hemp, and peas), and five grams of dietary fiber. This silky powder is vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and non-GMO. Even if you’re not a vegetarian or vegan in search of clean and easy protein sources, recent research shows the benefits of getting more of your protein from plants. Both flavors, Creamy Chocolate Fudge and Sweet Vanilla Bean, taste great no matter how you enjoy them—blended into smoothies, added to oatmeal, or swapped for flour in your favorite pancake recipe for a powered-up short stack.

We’re not the only ones excited about Orgain! Check out what some of our members had to say:

“This is the best tasting organic and completely vegan protein powder on the market. It blends insanely well in a shaker bottle and is cheap enough to have every day for breakfast. I’m usually full for around three hours on one shake. If you are looking to supplement your vegan lifestyle with more plant proteins, this is where you want to start!” —Anne

“I’m not very creative with my protein shakes—typically just nut butter, coconut milk, raw cacao, and protein powder. I’ve tried three different protein powders with this “recipe” recently and this one was by far the tastiest and most chocolatey. My smoothie was verging on tasting like Nutella!” —Leah
