PlantFusion products taste better because they’ve developed a unique method for blending natural whole food ingredients for amazing taste and texture. This complex arrangement of sweeteners, flavors and texture enhancement is called “Flavor PureTM” and you won’t find it in any other shakes.
ERYTHRITOL. A natural zero-calorie sweetener made from the natural sugars found in grapes, melons and mushrooms. Due to its small molecular size, only 90% gets absorbed into the bloodstream while the rest is naturally eliminated. This is why it does not cause gastric distress like many other low caloric sugars.
PURE FLAVORS. We start with natural ingredients like vanilla bean from Madagascar or cocoa from Spain. We combine them with plant oils and essences that have been fermented to create more complex notes which shape the rich indulgent flavors that you’ll only find in PlantFusion.
GENTLE EXTRACTION. The smooth creamy texture is achieved by gently separating the proteins from the dry husky fibers in the plant using natural enzymes rather than heat or acids. So you don’t get the gritty aftertaste that is common among plant-based shakes.
MONK FRUIT. Also known as Luo Han Guo, Monk Fruit is a natural zero-calorie sweetener that lowers the risk of obesity and diabetes helps to fight free radicals, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Better nutrition is defined by the quality of ingredients in your food and in your supplements. Through our “Select SourceTM” process, we evaluate hundreds of garden fresh ingredients from around the world. That’s why no other product offers this unique selection and potency.
Most nutritional supplements are not manufactured by the brands who sell them. The development and manufacturing is left to an anonymous 3rd party. All PlantFusion products are produced at our own Triple Certified facility right here in the USA.

When hunger strikes in between meals, what’s a person to do? The solution: have a Hungry Buddha Keto Bar on hand.
Hungry Buddha has always believed in the importance of healthy fats. With coconuts being one of their favorite superfoods, it’s no coincidence that Hungry Buddha Keto Bars are packed with healthy fats from MCT oil, g of plant protein, and are Keto-Certified with only 4g of net carbs and less than 2g of sugar.
Produced in a dedicated peanut-free facility, without any palm oils or sugar alcohols, Hungry Buddha Keto Bars are also soy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO.
So, what’s in them?
Made in Canada with only real ingredients that provide sustained energy to fuel your mind and body, Hungry Buddha Bars feature key ingredients like sunflower seed butter, tapioca fibre, and chicory root, to leave you feeling satisfied and satiated. Not to mention, because they are sweetened with Monk fruit, they taste amazing too!
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
1 1/2 cups Almondmilk, unsweetened vanilla
2 Tablespoons Collagen Peptides
½ cup fresh blueberries (plus more for topping)
½ Tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Hungry Buddha Coconut Cocoa Keto Bar for topping
Place all ingredients (not including the topping) into a container and stir until well combined. Seal with a lid and place in the refrigerator overnight.
Prepare the crumble topping by breaking up the Hungry Buddha bar into small pieces to place on top of your overnight oats.
The next morning, take the oats out and stir. You’ll notice the old fashioned oats and chia seeds soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add more almond milk before serving. Portion overnight oats into two containers, top each with the Buddha Bar crumble topping and a few extra blueberries. Enjoy!
