5 Body Sculpting Protein Shakes to Try

6
Dec

First of all, I should be tarred and feathered. I said I’ve had a new post up for you yesterday, and I didn’t. I had to go on a day trip somewhere, that brought me home around 12:30 a.m. So that is my excuse. I will try to be a better blogger in the future….once I am able to attend some seminar that tells me how this is possible. Ha.

Protein Shake 01

Mango Strawberry Protein Shake

So….anyway, most of you know that I’m making it a lifestyle change to include protein in all of my meals. I am the the carb-o-holic and yet, miracles of miracles, I’ve switched over to becoming fond of protein.

Why? I feel better. It keeps me feeling more full. It helps me stay slim. My muscles recover better after a workout. My blood sugar levels stay more stable.

Now, this is when I really make an effort to have more protein in my diet. It’s still a struggle…but I’m getting better at it.

One of the ways that really helps me get that protein in is smoothies. It’s fast, easy, and after a good morning workout, my body really craves something cold and refreshing.

So today, I thought I’d share 5 of my favourite, healthy protein shakes with you. Just in case you need to shake things up a bit! Keep in mind that you can use whatever protein powder you want. I use all sorts of kinds…hemp protein, vegan protein powder, and whey protein. I do stay away from any powder than includes soy, because I think soy is bad, bad.

Sweet Tart Smoothie 01

Sweet Tart Protein Smoothie (one of my faves!)

Chocolate Coconut Protein Smoothie 02

Chocolate Coconut Protein Shake

Healthy Iced Coffee 02

Healthy Coffee Frappuccino (for this one, just add a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder – SO good and very low cal!)

Supercharged Green Protein Smoothie 04

Supercharged Green Vegan Protein Smoothie (a great daily breakfast smoothie)

All of these smoothies are great for post-recovery after a good workout or as meal replacements! Enjoy!

    So making some of these! Great ideas :D

    I love smoothies too, the strawberry one is a fav :) and I totally agree on the soy part…

    I find that I benefit from adding protein to my diet, too. I do okay with just fruits and greens in the morning (greens have protein anyway), but later, I’m more satisfied with an extra protein boost. Love protein-packed smoothies!

    These look fabulous!! Who wouldn’t love a smoothie AND these are good for you! Just out of curiosity… why is soy bad? For so many years we’ve heard it is so good for you and now we are hearing negative things and I never heard why? Great post!!

    Love this… My friend recently informed me I should be getting 140 g of protien per day. I probably get 1/4 of that. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Lisa~ I will do a post in the future about why I believe soy is bad! Keep your eyes open for it!
