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 Riise-breakfast.com and soon launching in stores and cafes across the UK, including Black Sheep Coffee and Revital Health.
