DL Protein Smoothies

So I trust by now that you’ve all heard about our new DL Juice line. We currently sell seven juices from our DeliverLean kitchen that are all hand-made in our cold-pressed juicer with organic fruits and vegetables. With the launch of our juices we decided to create two high-protein smoothies to act as an additional easily digested nutrient dense meal.

We currently have two smoothies available for you to add to your current DeliverLean Diet Delivery meal plan. The first of these is our Vegan Protein Smoothie made with vegan protein powder, ground chia seeds, goji berries, blueberries, and coconut oil. This smoothie is the perfect breakfast or post-workout snack. While some of these ingredients may sound foreign, every single one of them could be considered a superfood for their high nutrient value.

  • Blueberries rank the highest of any fruit in regards to antioxidant content. Antioxidants have been linked to lowering cholesterol levels, encouraging heart health, and protecting the body against certain types of cancers.
  • Goji Berries contain all essential amino acids and have a much higher concentration of protein than any other fruits. Aside from protein, goji berries are also high in vitamin C, carotenoids, fiber, iron, calcium, zinc, and selenium.
  • Coconut oil has gained increasing popularity because of its well-known benefits for hair, skin, and nails. We use coconut oil in our Raw Vegan Protein Smoothie because we believe that it is important to incorporate healthy fats into our diet. The health benefits of this naturally occurring fat include improving your heart health, boosting your thyroid, increasing your metabolism, and promoting a lean body and weight loss if needed.
  • Chia seeds are high in protein, omega fatty acids, calcium, antioxidants, and fiber. With around 11 grams of fiber per ounce, chia seeds help slow digestion and make you feel fuller by soaking up fluid and expanding in your digestive tract.

Our DL Green Power Smoothie is made with blueberry, spinach, cucumber, green apple, and flax seeds. Although it does not use any protein powder, the spinach supplies around 12 grams of protein by itself. The flaxseeds supply around 5 grams of protein as well, making this a wonderful vegetarian protein source.
