My Go To Protein Smoothie Recipes

So i thought i would share with you all some of my favourite smoothies. Smoothies are such a great way to get in fruit and vegetables and when combined with a protein source they provide a great balance of macros. The best thing about smoothies is you can generally just see what you have in your cupboard and throw them in there. I tend to have a few key staples which you’ll see throughout my recipes.

So there you have my top four go to smoothies which i generally have as a snack or pre-workout shake. If i’m going to have a smoothie bowl for breakfast i follow the same ingredients as above but add less milk so that the smoothie is thick and can be topped with all the best toppings.

My Top Tips for Smoothies are:

  • Add ice to your smoothie for extra creaminess
  • Use frozen vegetables as this again adds extra creaminess
  • If you don’t have any protein powder use egg whites instead or protein packed seeds such as chia seeds
  • If you want a more substantial smoothie for a post workout add oats and an extra banana
