The lupine is this beautiful blue, yellow, white or pink flower that can be seen in some gardens. Its pretty flowers are edible while its seeds are consumed by humans as well as animals (livestock).
Thus, lupine is an inexpensive and animal-friendly source of protein https://www.seriouslyflowers.com/lupine-flower. I bought a 500 gram package on the Koro website for 4.50 euros https://www.koro.fr/proteines-de-lupin-bio-500-g?number=PROTEIN_003.
I tasted the lupin powder in vegetable milk and did not like the taste at all. I also tried to put two tablespoons in a smoothie and it was too much: my lupin ruined the smoothie 😉
In the end, one tablespoon of lupin seed powder in a smoothie is just the perfect amount. Here is the full recipe:
2 cups of water or more
5 ripe bananas
1 tb of maca powder
1tb lupine powder
3/4 cup of frozen raspberries
