Do you ever come home after a workout and want something other than the usual vanilla or chocolate protein shake? I do! Sometimes all I want is a fruit smoothie instead! So, I came up with this lemon-berry protein smoothie to satisfy my fruit cravings!
– 1/2 lemon squeezed
– 1/2 cup strawberries
– Handful of raw spinach
– 1 scoop of protein powder (I used vanilla whey protein)
– 1/2 cup milk
– 1/2 cup water
*(Total Calories 270)
Put it in a blender and you have a great post-workout smoothie! I think vanilla protein powder is the best base to use when making fruity smoothies because it isn’t overpowering and gives some sweetness to the taste.
What are your favorite fruit protein shake combinations?
