Searching for ways to drink power-packed high protein smoothies? You've come to the right place!
Hi, I'm DaNae! I've lost over 80 pounds. I share my story in hopes that it could be helpful to someone who is currently in my past shoes and wants to choose a different path of life. In the past, I've struggled with not feeling full after a smoothie. Adding extra protein has helped satiate my appetite and I avoid reaching for a snack later.
I also like protein because it helps avoid losing muscle mass while in a calorie deficit. In high protein smoothies, I aim to reach 50 grams of protein. Don't worry... you don't need to be adding raw eggs, grilled chicken breast, or canned tuna.
In order to do this, I use multiple types of foods to increase the amount of protein in one smoothie. Protein powders are the most common. I like to add my protein powders in the blender only after all the other ingredients are smooth.
The next foods I use are greak yogurt and cottage cheese. They are usually sold in most grocery stores and add a nice creamy texture to a smoothie.
Fit Chocolate Protein Smoothie
1 cup (8oz) of 2% milk
1/2 cup (4oz) cottage cheese
1 frozen banana
2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
Handful (1oz) fresh spinach
Sweetener of your choice
1-3 ice cubes
2 scoops Chocolate milkshake 100% whey protein powder by Premier Protein
Add all the ingredients and blend completely. Then add the protein powder and blend on low for 3 seconds. You can add extra sweetener if you'd like.
I like to use stevia or other sugar free sweeteners like Jordan Syrups (This is an affiliate link where you get 10% off your order).
