Homemade protein smoothies offer quick and healthy solutions to your nutrition plan. Takes 5 minutes to make and can be considered a whole-food meal when you do it right.
Many people make a fruit smoothie consisting of a fruit juice and fruit blended together. Although better than a bag of chips and other processed snack foods, it falls short of the protein that not only keeps us satiated, but feeds our muscles.
Take a look at the images and ingredients for my protein smoothie recipe. You can see how complete it is in macro and micro nutrients.
In part 2, I shall discuss how I arrived at this protein smoothie and its measurements as well as highlight ways for you to design YOUR favorite protein smoothie. For now, I'll just list my ingredients for you:
- frozen berries of your choice
- chocolate Muscle Milk (Naturals)
- yogurt (plain)
- cottage cheese
- maca root powder
- psyllium husks
- steel cut oats
- ice cubes
It fills me up and gets me moving. Stayed tuned for part 2.
Make it a great day!
