Between avocado, oats, chia, cacao powder, and flax; the milk of your choice — almond, flax, skim, coconut, et al.; exorbitant amounts of of fresh fruit & veggies; and a stacked lineup of other superfoods, we’ve concocted a master list of 30 creative, vibrant, beyond-simple protein smoothie recipes that absolutely OOZE protein and nutrition.
All smoothies roll in at 300 calories or less, contain zero added sweeteners or sugar (beyond what’s in fruit/milk), and pack a massive surge of protein from Greek yogurt and/or protein powder.
A few notes about the protein smoothie database:
We like and recommend MRM All-Natural Whey or Dymatize ISO-100 Whey for all protein powder based recipes. You can also swap the whey with rice, hemp, soy, casein, egg, or any other protein powder variety to meet your individual dietary needs. For a full breakdown of the top 150 protein powder products, check out our review here.
Feel free to substitute any milk used with your own personal favorite, whether that’s skim, 1%, almond, flax, coconut, or soy. Water works, too.
*#P/#C denotes calories and grams of protein, respectively, per ingredient.
