5 Healthy Protein Shake Recipes

Updated: Oct 21, 2019


If you're often running out the door for breakfast, looking for a satisfying snack idea, or just need to grab a quick lunch/dinner some days, protein shakes and smoothies are an easy way to get your nutrients in - and they're filling too! Today I'm sharing a few yummy shake recipes that several of us drank during a previous Health Challenge, that hopefully you will enjoy too!

Note that many of these recipes call for cottage cheese, but feel free to substitute 1 cup of almond, cashew, or coconut milk in its place (the protein count will be lower if you omit the cottage cheese, so you may want to add 1/2 to 1 scoop of extra protein powder). Also, you may not need to add water if you use a nut milk or frozen fruits. Feel free to adjust to your taste preferences.

1. The Power Shake

  • Servings: 1

  • Ingredients: 1 1⁄2 cups water, 2 scoops protein powder, 1⁄3 cup lowfat cottage cheese, 1 cup spinach 1⁄2 cup frozen strawberries, 2 TBSP walnuts, crushed ice

  • Nutrition Information per Serving:

Notes/Instructions: This shake is high in fiber, essential fatty acids, protein, and nutrients. Go ahead...drink it right out of the blender!

2. Almond Mocha Blast Shake

Notes/Instructions: This morning mocha drink will give you a nice dose of caffeine and fast-digesting protein. The perfect combination to halt protein breakdown and wake you up, plus it isn’t full of empty calories you usually get courtesy of your local barista. Just make sure the coffee isn’t too hot as it can make the protein powder clump up.
