    Pistachio Protein Smoothie

    This delicious protein smoothie is a great breakfast option when you are looking for something quick and easy to take with you. The banana adds a bit of sweetness, while the pistachios give it a wonderful nutty flavor. Cardamom is optional but really takes this smoothie up a notch. Sunwarrior is my favorite brand of plant-based protein powder right now. In this recipe, I use their Vanilla Warrior Blend. One scoop has 18 grams of plant-based, vegan protein and provides a full amino acid profile. It is lightly sweetened with stevia extract.
