Delicious Protein Smoothie Options You Can Make, Right Now

2-e1412692955298We love shakes and smoothies. They are the ultimate fast option for healthy, nutritious meals when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare food or you have a craving for sweets but still want to stick within the boundaries of a healthy diet.

To that end, we started looking around the shop at all the different flavors of protein that we carry, and thought of just how many amazing shakes and smoothies we could make with these flavors — and then we wondered, what about our customers? This week, we want to highlight a shake or two a day to show you just how versatile protein powder can be for making delicious smoothies that will help you build muscle and burn fat.

1. Peanut Butter Cup

One of the best combinations in human history is chocolate and peanut butter, and that is evident in this amazingly simple smoothie. With 1 C fat-free milk, 2 Tbsp. all-natural peanut butter, 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder (like PRO7 or HYDROPRO), 2 tbsps flaxmeal and 1/2 C plain low-fat yogurt, it tastes so good that it’s hard to believe that there’s enough protein, fiber and calcium in this shake to make it a powerful breakfast or even dessert option.

If a fruity flavor is more your style, there’s lots of options here as well. Vanilla protein powder works great, as does the banana flavor we carry — two scoops of either goes great with 1 C fat-free milk, some frozen blueberries, a small, ripe banana and 1 Tbsp. of chia seeds — be sure to let the whole shake settle for a couple minutes, to let the seeds set up and soften. The natural sugars in this shake make it a perfect choice post-workout.

3. Mudslide

Our great cookies and cream flavor works perfectly for this one — use two scoops and mix it in with 1 C of cold, fat-free milk, 1/2 a packet of sugar-free chocolate pudding and, optionally, a Tbsp. of smooth, all-natural peanut butter. For some added flavor, fiber and vitamins, toss in a small handful of frozen raspberries!

4. Pumpkin Power

One tbsp. of pumpkin puree, 1 scoop of caramel pretzel flavor protein, 1/2 C cashew or almond milk and pumpkin pie spice extends everyone’s favorite seasonal flavor throughout the year — and adds a ton of protein, fiber and vitamins to the equation.

5. Caramel Mocha

Perfect for those early-morning starts where you don’t have time for coffee and breakfast — combine the two in a great shake instead. With instant coffee granules, Caramel Pretzel PRO7 and 1/2 C of milk (you can use almond or cashew milk, too), this one has an ice cream feel to it without any of the guilt. (Shoutout to Nutrishop CDA fan Christina Thompson for Nos. 4 and 5!)

6. The PBJ

For those interested in throwing on muscle NOW, add precious calories, fats, protein and slow-digesting carbs with this treat. Peanut butter flavor protein, a scoop or two of real, natural peanut butter, 1/2 frozen strawberries, a small handful of instant oats and 1 C of 1 or 2-pct milk. Like being a kid again and opening up your bag lunch, except that you’re going to get huge and there’s no Capri Sun.
