This healthy, vegan Lemon Coconut Loaf is high protein, gluten-free, and has no added sugar. The perfect sweet snack or breakfast for Spring!
If you know me, you know chocolate and peanut butter paired together is my all-time favorite dessert combo. In fact, my grandma’s Peanut Butter Pie (with an Oreo crust 😉 ) is my favorite dessert…EVER. But I still have a soft spot in my heart (stomach?) for fruity treats. Especially when they involve lemon and coconut together!
You’ve seen me pair lemon and coconut together in the past with my Raw Lemon Coconut Bites, but now I’ve baked them into a cake-like loaf that’s perfect for spring and summer snacking.
My Vegan Lemon Coconut Loaf is perfect for a sweet snack, healthy dessert, or even a quick breakfast when you’re pressed for time due to its high fiber and protein content. Made with my favorite Natreve Wellness Vegan Protein of course!
Natreve has 3 different lines of protein to accommodate everyone’s different needs.
Their whey line is made with grass-fed collagen for the highest purity & absorption. It’s also:
- 100% New Zealand Whey Isolate
- Grass-fed, Hormone-free, Non-GMO, Gluten-free
- Organic greens, probiotics
- 28g protein per serving
Their Vegan line is honestly the best vegan protein I’ve ever had…in terms of taste, texture, AND nutrition. Each of their flavors is:
- 100% Vegan
- Multi-sourced plant-based protein complex from sprouted & ancient grains
- Gluten-free, Non-GMO
- Contains organic greens and probiotics
- 25g protein per serving
Their Keto Collagen line is for those looking to improve skin and hair health or are following the keto diet. But really it’s great for any one and everyone given all the good stuff it’s got inside:
- 100% pure grass-fed rBGH hormone-free whey isolate
- Collactive™ pure marine collagen
- MCT 70 Acacia
- 10g protein, 13g fats, 1g sugar, 2g net carbs per serving
As I’ve mentioned before, my favorite thing about Natreve proteins (aside from the taste and texture of course!) is that all of their products contain added greens. So you’re getting a ton of important vitamins and minerals with every serving. No other protein on the market can compare!

Zest of one fresh lemon
