How to Make a Protein Smoothie

A high-quality protein smoothie can serve as an excellent breakfast drink or a healthy snack after a good workout. Of course, you don't need an excuse to enjoy one—you just need a blender.

Instructions

  • Step 1: Break banana into blender Peel the banana, break it into chunks, and add them to the blender.
  • Step 2: Add milk & yogurt Add the milk and yogurt.
  • TIP: Whole milk and flavored yogurt will make your smoothie extra delicious, but they add extra calories. Use skim milk and light yogurt if this is a concern.
  • Step 3: Add whey protein Add the whey protein.
  • TIP: Always check the product label for the proper recommended amount.
  • Step 4: Blend until slushy Blend at a low to medium speed until the mixture is slushy.
  • TIP: Add fruit like blueberries, strawberries, or peach slices for flavor and vitamins.
  • Step 5: Blend until smooth Blend on low to medium speed until the mixture is smooth.
  • Step 6: Pour Pour the drink into a large glass--or a travel tumbler for your sporty lifestyle.
  • FACT: Whey protein comes from cow's milk and is a "complete" protein, meaning it contains all the required amino acids.
