A new high protein vegan smoothie has been created in a bid to reduce over-reliance on animal-based products.

Riise is intended as a breakfast option – meeting the increasing demand for on-the-go breakfasts and plant-based options in one.

The shake contains six core ingredients including water, activated almonds, a variety of whole super fruit and vegetables, a dash of plant protein and the same amount of oats as a bowl of porridge. There is no added sugar, 10g of protein and a high level of fibre in each portion.

Environmental crisis

Riise Founder Amrit Hathiramani, a former Finance Manager, said: “We created Riise in a bid to lower our collective, reliant and heavy consumption of meat and dairy products – which is causing an adverse impact on not only the environment, but also on our health.

“I wanted to make a difference during this progressively scary environmental crisis.”

One vegan meal a day

He added: “I know it’s unrealistic to expect the entire world to become completely vegan, but by having just one vegan meal a day, the impact on the environment and our health will be significantly reduced.

“I believe Riise can be that one meal.”

The product is currently available online at and soon launching in stores and cafes across the UK, including Black Sheep Coffee and Revital Health.
