Getting a healthy dose of protein to kick off your day is important, but mornings are hectic and we aren’t all pros when it comes to putting together a protein-packed breakfast. Same goes for lunch. The solution? Protein shakes! Get your blender out, because these four shakes are so easy and tasty, you’ll be rotating them for the next few weeks.
Do you love banana nut muffins, but resent the carbs and sugars that go along with them? We totally get that, which is why we are SO in love with this shake that provides your protein, a dose of potassium, and some heart-healthy fats. You can even swap between nut milks and water for less calories without affecting the yummy flavor. So sip away and enjoy that nutty banana goodness sans guilt, friends!
Needless to say, this shake is berry, berry delicious. Whether you’re more partial to blueberries, raspberries, cherries, or strawberries, pick your very own blend to toss into this mix along with Omega-3-rich flaxseed, iron-boosting spinach, and hefty protein.
Many of us covet the sweet and nutty combination of chocolate and peanut butter, but it’s not something we allow ourselves to indulge in often — until now. With a generous amount of chocolate protein powder, cocoa bits, a banana, and some creamy PB, the dessert we covet most has turned into a legit meal option that is packed with nutrients. Aww yesss.
Blueberries are freaking fabulous. Their fiber, folate, vitamin C and B6, and potassium content make them a huge supporter of a healthy heart. Let’s also highlight the fact that it’s a total brain booster. Add to that some walnuts with their neuroprotective compounds, some flaxseed, and some protein, and you’ve got a recipe for a focused and productive day.
