Do you love drinking smoothies? Do you make a lot of smoothies at home? If so, I have some ideas for you!

Ever since I starting working out, I love blending my own protein smoothie couple times a week. My basic formula for my smoothie is the same, but each time it may be different. I use frozen/fresh fruit, plain Greek yogurt, honey, cocoa powder (sometimes), protein powder, juice, and water.

Below is my recipe for my protein smoothies.

Protein Smoothies

Serving size: 1

Ingredients:
1/2 cup frozen/fresh fruit (all frozen or partial frozen and fresh)
spoonful of plain Greek yogurt
drizzle of honey
small spoonful of cocoa powder (optional, if you want a chocolate flavor)
1 scoop protein powder (example of flavors I’m using: triple berry or mocha cappuccino)
little bit of juice (apple or orange)
little bit of water

  1. This looks delicious. What kind of protein powder do you use? My toddler loves smoothies so I’ve gotten used to drinking what he likes but it can’t be too hard to add protein powder once I have poured his, right? Thank you for sharing this at #MommyMeetUpMondays!

  2. I’ll have to give these a try! I’ve recently starting working out again, so these would be perfect for me! Thank you so much for sharing with us at the Talented Tuesdays Link Party!
