When you’re super busy (all of us!), it’s nice to get an all-around nutritional boost from a single snack. Sure, protein alone is nice, but a snack with adaptogens, antioxidants, probiotics, and protein is even nicer (hence the idea behind these adaptogen protein bars). This is why I like to make my smoothies complete wellness drinks–not just protein or fruit drinks. If you’re like me, you’re probably on the hunt for a multi-tasking vegan protein powder. Well, search no more! We’ve rounded up five vegan protein powders that seriously deliver on multiple nutritional fronts.
