Powerhouse Smoothie without the protein powder

Protein powders have enjoyed a cult like status in recent years, for exercise enthusiasts and the health conscious alike.

Recent reports of adverse effects that could be attributed to the use of protein powders has placed the industry under a little more scrutiny – as they are, after all, a synthetic and processed product.

Inspiration for our Powerhouse Smoothie. Packed with real protein, usable energy, gut loving fibre, and key micro nutrients like magnesium, potassium and vitamin B6.

All ingredients are free from chemicals and pesticides. Our local farmer’s market has some beautiful produce – grown successfully and respectfully without the use of any harmful chemicals.
