CSE Vegan Protein

Plant powered protein is a great supplement to any diet! Our new Clean Simple Plant-Based Eats Protein isn’t just another vegan protein powder though. These vegan powders have a smooth texture and delicious taste. You guys, we nailed it! Just like any of our other products, we thought and fought long and hard to get this formula just right. Our vegan protein is clean, effective, tastes great AND can easily be swapped into any of our Clean Simple Eats recipes found in the meal plans without having to alter the recipe at all!

Each scoop provides:

  • 18g of the highest quality vegan protein

  • 105 calories - 1F / 6C / 18P

  • 5g of fiber

  • Enzymes for better absorption

  • MCT powder for better recovery

  • ZERO added sugars

  • NO artificial anything!

  • NO gluten

  • NO dairy

  • NO soy, pea, rice

We want to give you the ‘deep dive’ into what makes this protein powder so special.

Hang on tight! A quality protein powder starts with a quality base. It was a no-brainer for us on this one! We chose hemp protein as the foundation. Hemp protein is arguably the best source of plant based protein on the planet! Here’s why:  

1.    Touts a complete protein, containing ALL nine essential amino acids

2.    It’s easy to digest and highly bio-available

3.   Offers a good source of fiber

4.   Rich in omega fatty acids

5.   Valuable source of vitamins & minerals

6.   Nutty, earthy taste - no chalk dust here!

7.   May help ward off and fight chronic disease

The reason we chose hemp as our foundation…

…is the fact that hemp protein is one of the most bio-available sources of protein on the planet. It’s not only a high quality plant-based option, it’s also a complete form of protein that contains all nine essential amino acids and is easily digestible. Hemp protein also provides your body with gut friendly fiber, omegas, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. We wanted this protein powder to not only be the tastiest plant-based powder on the market, but also the most effective. Hemp protein is absolutely a complete source of protein. The only “hole” in its amino acid profile is its inherent weakness relating to the amino acid lysine. But, we’ve got your back! The second most abundant source of protein found in our vegan powder is pumpkin seed protein. Pumpkin seeds are known for having an abundance of lysine which fills in any gap that hemp might have making the complete amino acid profile that much stronger!  We also added flax and chia to our cold processed vegan protein powders making this formula a powerhouse staple to your diet.

Hemp protein comes from small, brown seeds which are rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fatty acids, including omega-3s and omega-6s. They have antioxidant effects and may reduce symptoms of numerous ailments, improving the health of the heart, skin, and joints. These seeds are a complete source of protein, meaning that they provide all nine essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks for all proteins. The body cannot produce nine of these acids, so a person must absorb them through the diet. Relatively few plant-based foods are complete sources of protein, making hemp seeds a valuable addition to a vegetarian or vegan diet. Hemp seeds are especially rich in an amino acid called arginine. Arginine is known as the “cardio” amino due to its numerous benefits to the heart, blood pressure and circulation. Not quite sold on hemp protein yet?  

Check out what else is inside each scoop: 

5g Fiber

  • Reduces appetite

  • Helps with weight management

  • Works to stabilize blood sugar levels

  • Promotes gut health          

Vitamins & Minerals

Hemp seeds contain an impressive array of vitamins and minerals and are especially rich in:

  • Vitamin E

  • Magnesium

  • Phosphorous

  • Potassium

They are also a good source of iron, zinc, and B vitamins, including:

  • Niacin

  • Riboflavin

  • Thiamine

  • Vitamin B-6

  • Folate

Alongside the nutritional benefits, some research suggests that hemp seeds have a wide range of positive health effects.

They may:

Protect the brain

Boost heart health

Reduce inflammation

So… besides the fact that hemp is an amazing source of plant-based protein… what else is in this powder?  


Pumpkin seeds may be small, but they're packed full of valuable nutrients. A small amount can provide you with a substantial quantity of omegas, magnesium and zinc. Because of this, pumpkin seeds have been associated with several health benefits. These include improved heart health, prostate health and protection against certain cancers.  

Here are the top 10 health benefits of pumpkin seeds that are supported by science.

1. Full of Valuable Nutrients

2. High in Antioxidants

3. May be linked to a Reduced Risk of Certain Cancers

4. Improve Prostate and Bladder Health

5. High in Magnesium

6. May Improve Heart Health

7. Can Lower Blood Sugar Levels

8. High in Fiber

9. May Help Improve Sleep

10. Easy on the digestive system


When it comes to nutritional goodness, flax seeds are full of it. Though tiny, they are rich in the omega-3 fatty acid ALA, lignans and fiber, all of which have been shown to have many potential health benefits.

They can be used to improve digestive health, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol, reduce the risk of cancer and may benefit people with diabetes.


Chia seeds are rich in nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and fiber. Studies suggest that chia seeds have various health benefits, ranging from weight loss to reduced inflammation. If you don’t eat chia seeds already, you should definitely consider adding them to your diet. They’re among the few superfoods worthy of the title.


MCT’s or Medium Chain Triglycerides are easily digested and absorbed and can serve as an instant source of energy, including a powerful fuel for your brain. It may also help to negate the buildup of lactic acid in working muscles making recovery a smoother process. MCT’s have also been know to aid in weight loss and weight management. Recent studies have also shown MCT’s to be a positive factor in fighting many chronic diseases that are so prevalent in today’s world.


The Konjac plant has a starchy root called a corm, which is high in a dietary fiber called Glucomannan. Glucomannan has long been known to support the regulation of blood sugar levels.


Enzymes are tiny little protein catalysts that help to break food down into smaller, easier for your digestive system to manage, constituents. For example, enzymes such as protease found in this formula, help to break protein down into amino acids. Adding enzymes to a formula like this helps to ensure you’re utilizing ALL of the protein and other health benefits found in this powder.
