Protein smoothies are recommended for post-workout recovery and muscle recovery; they help curb appetite and serve as a perfect nutrient-dense breakfast.
Typically, we are bombarded with different protein powders and become overwhelmed about which are the safest and best ones to use.
What if I told you that you don’t necessarily need a protein powder to get your post-workout protein fix? You can create a 20-grams-of-protein smoothie with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!
Here are my favorite all-natural ingredients that add up to 20 grams of protein in one smoothie:
Berry Protein Smoothie
½ cup mixed berries
1 frozen banana
½ cup almond milk
½ cup Greek yogurt
⅓ cup oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Toss all ingredients into a high-speed blender. Serve immediately and enjoy!
