Are protein shakes good for you? Definitely! Aside from muscle growth, these smoothie drinks are a great source of energy. Here are the most delicious smoothie recipes you can try at home.
1. Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie
This smoothie is like eating an oatmeal cookie blended up into a thick creamy milkshake! This shake makes an excellent breakfast or snack, and is a great way to get your cookie fix in a healthy way!
2. Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie
This is a delicious, super simple recipe that we often have for breakfast or for an after school, pre-sport snack.
3. Black Forest Smoothie
Cherries and cocoa for some antioxidant awesomeness. Dates for an extra kick of natural sweetness. Oats for filling fiber. Chia seeds for healthy omega 3’s… Basically lots and lots of goodness in one ridiculously thick and creamy smoothie. You can even add a scoop of your favorite protein powder if you want a little extra oomph, or toss in a handful of spinach to help you get your greens in.
4. Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
We have also been enjoying a high-protein, fruit-and-veggie-packed smoothie almost every afternoon. This is currently my favorite combination: Greek yogurt, bananas, spinach, blueberries, strawberries. The kids enjoy it, too, and it’s one of the only ways I can get them to eat their spinach. You can’t taste the spinach and you can barely see it if your blender is a good one… just tiny green flecks mixed in with the gorgeous purple color.Ingredients
5. Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie
This smoothie has protein, energy, vitamins, and nutrients, not to mentions tastes AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you’re a fan of the famous peanut butter and jelly sandwich, then this is the smoothie for you.
6. Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
This smoothie was deliciously creamy and tasted just like how I remember an Orange Creamsicle. By adding the flaxseed, it also had more fiber which helps to fill you up so it’s perfect for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up.
