Healthy Whey Protein Smoothie Recipes

By Danny Wallis Personal Trainer & Online Fitness Coach

February 15, 2016

Smoothies are a fantastic way of eating-on-the-go.  They are fast to prepare, you can take them with you as a quick and healthy ‘meal-on-the-go’ and, if prepared with fresh/healthy ingredients, can provide you with a ton of nutrients and vitamins to keep your blood sugar levels balanced and protein intake high – Both essential for maintaining healthy muscle tone.

Personal Favourites

I have selected three of my personal favourite recipes for you to try.  These smoothies contain a selection of both fruits and vegetables for a varied combination of vitamins, potassium and iron, plus a scoop of your favourite Whey Protein to add an extra 25 grams of protein per drink.

These smoothies are great as a meal replacement or as a post workout drink to replace essential fats, sugars and protein to start rebuilding and re-fuelling your muscles after exercise. Simply Blend, and go!

Protein Fruit Smoothie – 325 Calories

1/2 a Frozen Banana
1/2 a Cup of Frozen Blueberries
1/2 a Cup of Frozen Raspberries
Handful of Chopped Spinach
1 Scoop of Protein Powder (your choice of flavour but I quite like Strawberry or vanilla with this)
1 Cup of Water

Mixed Fruit & Veg Smoothie – 370 calories

On a quick side note; If you’re thinking about buying a blender (specifically for your smoothies), I would highly recommend my most recent purchase, the Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender. It works exactly the same as a Nutribullet but is a fifth of the price. It’s amazingly easy to use and really simple to clean – I would highly recommend it… I bought mine from Amazon and absolutely love it!
