10 Easy and healthy protein smoothies every single one of you needs to try!

Protein Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to add health to your daily nutrition.

They are easy to make, contain a lot of goodness, and usually taste really good.

Not only can they help you with losing weight and getting in shape, but they are good for your health in general too.

Depending on the type of smoothie you make, you can really get all sorts of vitamins, energy boosting nutrients and antioxidants into your body.


10 Healthy Protein Smoothies

The great thing about smoothies is that there really isn’t a time of day where you can’t make and enjoy one.

Most people like to have it as a breakfast replacement, which is a healthy and easier alternative to making breakfast.

Whilst others will make smoothies as a post workout drink or even a later afternoon snack.

The choice is yours!

Why Make Your Own Protein Smoothies?

Between the age of 17 and 21, I was obsessed with the generic protein powder you buy at pharmacies.

I used to make myself protein shakes after every workout by just mixing the protein powder with some water or milk, and thought it was the best thing ever.

The problem is, those big, commercial protein powder companies charge so much money for their products, and their health benefits are really slim.

So for the past few years I have been making my own smoothies using only natural ingredients.

Things such as fruits, nuts, seeds, almond milk etc is the best way to go.

Not only are these the healthiest protein smoothies to make, but they taste damn delicious too!
