Protein Smoothies

Everyone loves a good smoothie, and homemade ones are even better. You can control exactly what you put into them, and you can make them as protein packed as you like. In these three recipes, we’ll be using Greek yogurt, but you could sub that out for another kind if you wanted. You could also use regular milk, instead of almond milk, but we like to keep everything “macro friendly” so unsweetened almond milk works for us, and my kids don’t even notice!


My Nutri Ninja is a must when making these. It comes with individual cups and blends everything smoothly in just 30 seconds or so. Also, when you have differing opinions about what others want in their smoothies, it makes it easier to just zap up order number one, then order number two, and finally my own. Everyone gets their own personal order and everyone is happy 😊



Tips-

  • Use frozen fruit – it makes the smoothie frosty and you can have supplies on hand any time of the year.

  • Using Greek yogurt will add healthy protein. (Plain or low sugar vanilla like Oikos works well)

  • Adjust liquid amount based on the consistency you like. Some prefer thicker smoothie “bowls” while others may like a thinner consistency that you can drink with a straw. That is what we prefer. (A splash of apple juice works in some cases too for liquid)

  • Our favorite protein powders are- FNX, Quest, Premier, or Gold Standard


Try these three recipes and let us know which is your favorite. They're ALL easy, one minute snacks!


Strawberry Protein Smoothie-

Blend together-

  • ½ cup Plain Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup frozen strawberries

  • ½ cup almond milk

  • ½ scoop vanilla protein powder (could use strawberry)




Mixed berry Protein Smoothie-

Blend together-

  • ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup frozen mixed berry blend

  • ¼ to ½ cup milk

Only three easy ingredients here. (You could of course add protein powder if you wanted, but there was no need for my 6 year old)




Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie-

Blend together-

  • 1 vanilla Greek yogurt

  • ½ to whole scoop chocolate protein powder (or "peanut butter cup" FNX- it’s so good!)

  • 1 heaping tbsp. creamy peanut butter

  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk



You can change the protein amounts in all of these. I usually don't use a full scoop- only because I am not a huge fan of super sweet things. If you'd like a full scoop, go for it!


Enjoy!
