Don’t let the name of this drink throw you off. This creamy meal is sweetened with natural ingredients and gets an added dose of fibre, protein and healthy omega-3 fats from chia or flax seeds. This drink is perfect as a lunch substitution, for a juice cleanse, or post-workout snack.


This protein-packed cashew juice is a creamy drink that gets its flavour and thickness from whole raw cashews. There are no artificial ingredients and the honey can be swapped for maple syrup or agave for a vegan lunch. Cashews are packed with healthy fats so make sure to portion control when pouring. Aim for 3/4 cup per serving.
