Berry Protein Smoothie - To fuel your summer

By: Dr. Francesca Vazquez

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

Serves 1


  • ½ cup mixed berries

  • 1 frozen banana

  • ½ cup almond milk

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt

  • ⅓ cup oats

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Toss all ingredients into a high-speed blender. Serve immediately and enjoy!
