How To Make A Mixed Berry Protein Shake

  1. Start with a liquid base; water or non-dairy milk works great. I prefer almond milk. Then you’ll add a vanilla protein powder, you could use a chocolate protein powder, but I enjoy vanilla best with this recipe. You could use whey protein or plant-based protein, whichever you prefer.
  2. Then add frozen berries; you could use fresh berries – but more ice will be needed.
  3. Then add almond butter or all-natural peanut butter. I prefer almond butter for this recipe, but peanut butter works too.
  4. Next, add green tea powder – these are optional, but they add a nice flavor and a great energy boost.
  5. Finally, add the ice cubes and blend until desired consistency.

Ways To Modify Your Protein Shakes

You can add greek yogurt, collagen peptides, or cottage cheese for extra protein. For some extra healthy fats, you could add chia seeds. Just remember chia seeds act as a thickener, so more liquid will be needed.

I love having a protein shake before a workout. Protein Shakes are a great way to fuel your body before or after a workout. For more information on proper ways to fuel your body when working out, check out my post, What To Eat Before and After a Workout A Powerful Guide For Optimal Results!

Picking the right protein powder when creating your protein shake is so important. Unfortunately, many supposedly healthy protein powder brands are filled with weird chemicals and artificial ingredients that harm our bodies. Because it is marketed as a healthy product does not mean it is, so use caution, friends. I have listed my favorite options below- all taste fantastic and are organic, clean, and good for you!

Each Protein Powder I recommend has the highest quality ingredients, with no sketchy crap that many brands use.
