6 Awesomely Delicious and Healthy Protein Shake Recipes

May 2, 2019

Shakes and smoothies are a great way to get a nutrient-packed meal or snack in just minutes – they’re convenient, portable, and a super easy meal that requires no cooking and zero time!  They are a great way to obtain things like protein, healthy fats, vegetables, and fruits that might otherwise be lacking in your diet, and drinking a protein-packed shake after exercising will quickly give your body what it needs to maximize the recovery response post-workout.

While drinks from smoothie stores can contain a million calories and tons of sugar, it’s easy to make a DIY smoothie that’s actually healthy right at home. All you need is a blender or shaker, the ingredients, and you’re ready to go! Here are our six favorite protein shake recipes.
