I recently discovered nutritional yeast from one of my vegan friends and it has definitely taken my shakes up a notch.

It is make from fortified deactivated yeast, so it won't make your smoothie rise or anything like that. Warning, it does have a strong flavor, but you add so little that the taste isn't noticeable.

Another benefit is that the protein is a complete protein, meaning it has all 9 essential amino acids. That extra 9g of protein here and there throughout the day can really help balance out your macros.

And, the extra fiber will help keep you regular. It's kinda expensive but you don't need much so it should last a while.

You only need a few simple ingredients to make it. Drink it all up. So the smoothie has been made…. Love the extra bonus of adding nutritional yeast too! Never thought of that before, but I will be adding some to my green smoothies from now on. As for supplementation, unfortunately being low in iron and vitamin b12 can come along with the vegan lifestyle.

I try to use nutritional yeast regularly in salads or pasta dishes. Also including super foods like chia seeds for some iron, raw maca powder good for energy, hormone levels and post workout , and raw cacao is another source of some iron. I usually have a smoothie every morning so I love finding new recipes to mix it up a bit. Thanks for the post—I look forward to trying this!

Wow, I never would have thought to add nutritional yeast to a smoothie — great idea! Like almost anything, it depends on the individual, though! I agree with you about supplements, obviously getting as much as possible from whole foods.
