Protein Smoothie Recipes

Smoothie preserves for us fiber, and vitamins contained in the products, without losing a single useful component. That is what we need in the winter when there are not enough vitamins.

The best way to make a smoothie nutritious is to add foods that contain protein and healthy fats: ground nuts (the most popular cocktails are almonds and walnuts), seeds, bran, oatmeal, chia seeds, or flaxseeds.

Even having perfectly picked up the components (the number of which, by the way, according to the rules of the ideal smoothie, should not be more than three or four), remember that nothing should be too much: do not add too much ice to your mix so that it does not turn out too liquid.

Do not pour all the milk into the blender at once, add it a little, and watch the resulting texture. You should not add only sweet or too “thick” fruits to the cocktail, keep balance and experiment: this way you will find your perfect recipe and be able to please yourself with your favorite smoothie every day.
