I have a pretty big sweet tooth, which I work hard to control. Of course, every now again I feel the need to indulge. These days it’s easier to enjoy a delicious treat that’s also full of a few nutritious ingredients. I recently experimented with some new protein powders to create a batch of plant powered chocolate chip cookies. Spoiler alert: The cookies are delish.

Plant Powered Protein Powders

Wow, that’s a lot of Ps. Before I share the cookie recipe, I want to talk about all these “Ps”.  They come in the form of PlantFusion’s Complete Protein Powder, Complete Plant Collagen Builder, and Fermented Superfood.

Plant Powered PlantFusion Powders

What sets PlantFusion apart from other brands is their commitment to creating delicious, whole food based products for everyone. No matter what diet you follow, from vegan to ketogenic, PlantFusion believes you shouldn’t have to sacrifice flavor for nutrition. All of their powders or shakes are free of allergens like soy, dairy, and gluten. Additionally, their products are plant powered and produced at their Triple Certified, USA-based facility.

Complete Protein Powder

I’m not a big breakfast person. When I do eat that first meal of the day, my go-to is a green smoothie. In order to make my smoothies as creamy and rich as possible, I use a lot of frozen goodies. I freeze my ripe bananas, use frozen fruits, and even freeze fresh spinach. Although my smoothies taste more like a milkshake than just another healthy drink, they never really fill me up. Cut to a few hours later, and I’m starving.

Plant Powered Plant Fusion Complete Protein

To make my smoothies more filling, I add hemp or chia seeds, and lately, the PlantFusion Complete Protein in Natural. While the plant powered powder comes in five flavors, from Chocolate to Red Velvet Cake, I’m so happy they sent me Natural. I love having a protein powder that doesn’t change the flavor of my smoothie and contains no added sugar. (Note: all of the PlantFusion’s protein powders, which the exception of Natural, contain Stevia.)

Complete Protein benefits:

  • Sustain Energy thanks to plant-based proteins including pea, artichoke, algae and sprouted superfoods
  • Build and Repair Muscle with a blend of BCAA’s and L-Glutamine
  • Easy to Digest and free of major allergens, preservatives, artificial colors and flavors


Complete Plant Collagen Builder

 In addition to drinking smoothies, I also incorporate collagen powder into my diet. Collagen is naturally found in the body. It helps repair muscles and joints and keeps hair and nails healthy. As we age, we produce less and less collagen.

Some studies suggest that taking a collagen supplement can help improve skin and may help with muscle recovery. I’ve been using collagen for about a year and find it has made a difference in my hair, nails, and skin. It’s not a magic pill, but it does produce results.

Plant Powered PlantFusion Collagen Builder

One of the challenges I face with taking collagen, however, is not being able to find a plant powered option. Most collagen peptides are made from the bones of bovines and marine animals. While these are effective, they aren’t viable options for vegetarians or vegans. Enter the PlantFusion Complete Plant Collagen Builder.

Available in three flavors, Natural, Creamy Vanilla Bean and Rich Chocolate, this collagen supplement is a blend of fruit extracts, ceramides, and white tea. It’s Non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and free of allergens, and artificial colors and flavors.

Complete Protein benefits:

  • Builds Collagen thanks to a blend of Saberry amla fruit extract, amino acids, and plant proteins
  • Hydrates Collagen with plant-based ceramides that help your skin retain moisture
  • Protects Collagen with a blend of white tea extract and hyaluronic acid

The brand was kind enough to send me the Creamy Vanilla Bean to test out. I have to say, I’m not a fan of flavor or the texture, with some exception. Typically, I drink my collagen in water, so I prefer a flavorless variety, or at least one that tastes like fruit.

I don’t like vanilla flavored water, nor the fact that PlantFusion powder doesn’t dissolve well in water. Instead, I incorporate the Vanilla Collagen Builder into my smoothies. I find it performs better this way. I would be curious to try the Natural Flavor as I think it might align more with how I like to take collagen.

Last but not least, the PlantFusion Fermented Superfood Protein, which I used in the chocolate chip cookie recipe. The powder is available in Rich Chocolate and Vanilla Chai. As a huge chai drinker, I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

This powder is so unique. It is made from fermented foods, which help promote and aid gut health. You might have heard about the benefits of eating fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut or drinking Kombucha. The fermentation process used in these foods can help improve your body’s ability to produce healthy gut bacteria. The more good bacteria in your tummy and digestive tract, the better your digestive and immune system will perform.

Plant Powered PlantFusion Fermented Superfood Protein

Fermented Superfood benefits:

  • Supports Gut Health by nurturing your body’s own micro-bacteria
  • Enhances Immunity by suppressing bad bacteria
  • Improves Energy with a blend of organic fruits, sprouted grains, and cruciferous greens

 You can mix this powder into water, tea, coffee, or smoothies, or incorporate it into a recipe, like these delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The latest trend in healthy living is adding as much nutrition to our diets as possible, but with minimal fuss — because really, who has time for complicated recipes, right? But for someone with finicky diet standards this can be easier said than done. My sister-in-law introduced me to smoothie bowls from a local establishment and I instantly became obsessed with this quick and easy food option! I love this delicious healthy snack.

I am partial to certain textures and so for me, eating a lot of healthy foods is just out of the question. Smoothie bowls are an option that allows me to customize to include foods with textures that I enjoy AND it almost feels as though I’m treating myself to a sweet dessert. Here is a recipe to get you started but you can change this up in so many different ways to fit your own personal needs.

My go-to recipe is as follows but feel free to alter things to fit the consistency and flavor you like or to address individual nutritional needs…. [read more]

Perfectly Blended Smoothies Every Time

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I used to make healthy protein shakes but due to budget, I started making smoothies instead. I enjoy a smoothie at least once a day. Over the years, I have used several blenders. First, I used one that my mom gave me and when that broke down, my husband bought me a new one. I also acquired one through blog. Blenders vary in their blending results. Unfortunately, I have experienced uneven smoothies, too thick smoothies and unblended fruit at the bottom.
