This month, New York City-based brand Elmhurst debuted new vegan protein shakes made with its peanut milk. The new line features two flavors (Chocolate and Vanilla Bean) and is designed to aid in post-workout recovery with 20 grams of plant-based peanut protein. The shakes contain simple ingredients such as filtered water, Dutch processed cocoa, salt, and cane sugar. Elmhurst operated as a dairy company in New York until 2016 when current CEO Henry Schwartz partnered with food scientist Cheryl Mitchell, Ph.D., to transition the brand to create exclusively vegan products. In 2017, Elmhurst released its first vegan line Elmhurst Milked that features a range of milks made from almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, and walnuts using its proprietary technology. Since then, the brand continues to release new products made from peanuts, oats, and brown rice. Elmhurst plans to add two more flavors to its protein shake line in early 2019.
