Healthy Vegan Smoothies with Plant Protein from Zija International’s Core Moringa 

Healthy Vegan Smmothies,

Disclaimer: I am a Zija Independent Distributor and I will be discussing Zija products in this post. My opinions are my own and based on my experiences using the products. 

I have been a user of protein powders for smoothies for many years. I found protein packed smoothies to be a great training aid and later they were essential for my very athletic children. I am always on the lookout for a powder that makes good smoothies.  Until recently it was whey powder or nothing. I have been pleased with the Leanfit Whey Protein Shakes from Costco. 

I have noticed over the last couple of years that there are times when the whey protein doesn’t agree with me. It seems to act as something of an accelerator. This is product independent and includes Zija’s why protein shake mix.  I was looking for an alternative. I was delighted in September when Zija rolled out its new Plant Protein.

Plant Protein Nutritional Supplement Shake Mix contains a complete protein extracted from Moringa oleifera leaves, providing each serving with 20 grams of 100% plant-derived protein. Our proprietary gluten-free, soy-free and vegan formula will help you feed your body with maximum nutrition.

Zija has gone above and beyond industry standards to deliver the most nutritious Moringa possible. From farm to mouth, we scrutinize each step to ensure that nutrition is at the forefront of all decisions in the growing, harvesting and manufacturing processes. This includes utilizing the best locations for growing Moringa, shade drying the leaves to ensure that their nutrients remain intact, and using state-of-the-art machinery and facilities.

1 Box of Plant Protein – Vanilla Bean (28 Packets)

What they didn’t mention is that both the Vanilla and the Dutch Chocolate flavors taste amazing, even when you use water. They dissolve beautifully, making them easy to use on the go. 

Moringa oleifera is one of the few plants to supply all of the essential amino acids. Zija extracted the protein and then built on that to create this terrific product that is Vegan and soy free. It is also tolerated by my picky system where the whey products are not. 

This is a great product by Zija and I recommend it for anyone using protein powders and particularly for folks who are vegan or don’t tolerate the whey. 

Create your healthy, vegan smoothies.

  1. I'm a vegetarian (not vegan) and these look awesome! I always do homemade strawberry smoothies so an extra dose of protein would be handy.
  2. Gorgeous! And this looks sooo good! I totally prefer plant-based protein over just whey. My job actually makes one that I can get half off, which is nice (: what a great recipe and post... those strawberries look so delicious.
    1. It was a bad winter for strawberries so I am lucky to have a farmer who brings me the good stuff.
  3. I've been trying to become a vegan for years. I'm getting closer and closer. I'll be using this one at home!! Love always, Zineb
  4. These look great! My family and I don't eat meat or dairy. We make a lot of smoothies. Love the idea of adding almond butter :) Thanks for sharing!
