Inside the Openfit Plant-Based Protein Shake

spiced almond shake - shake in glass with protein container

Chocolate protein shakes aren’t just something for gym rats and body builders these days. Easy protein options have become more and more popular over the years. Research reveals the complex role protein can play in helping the body regulate the feeling of fullness after a meal, in addition to helping muscles recover after exercise.

Choosing a high-quality protein—one rich in nutrients but low in refined carbohydrates and saturated fat—is the best way to get the most out of this essential macronutrient.

Openfit’s Plant-Based Protein Shake is an excellent vegan protein source with 20g of pea protein per serving. It also boasts functional ingredients like fiber and 26 essential vitamins and minerals.

And fact that the Openfit’s Plant-Based Protein Shake doesn’t have any added refined sugars is really something to write home about. It has no added sugar and no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. None of the bad stuff, and all of the good stuff to help promote lean muscle and support sustained energy .

All About Almonds

If you love a good scoop of almond butter on your toast in the morning, you’ll love this chocolate protein shake upgrade. Made with almond butter and almond milk, the nutty flavor is a perfect compliment to the chocolaty shake.

Not only does this make the shake taste great, almonds contain a high percentage of nutrients in one tiny package. Just 1 cup of almond milk provides this shake with another gram of protein, plus a boost of Vitamin E, an important fat-soluble antioxidant. The tablespoon of almond butter adds another 3.5 g of protein, 30 mg of calcium, and 1.5 g of fiber.

When choosing an almond milk, be sure to select an unsweetened variety as extra sugars tend to sneak their way into a host of dairy-free milks. Your almond butter choices matter, too. Opt for a natural brand focused on the main ingredient (almonds!) and avoid those containing sugar, oils, or preservatives.

Easy, Healthy Choices

Instead of reaching for those cocoa roasted almonds for a snack (which probably contain added sugars and artificial sweeteners) treat yourself to this easy-to-prepare, nutritionally dense, and utterly delicious alternative.

Your belly will thank you later.
