PROTEIN SMOOTHIE RECIPES

I get a lot of requests for all kinds of protein smoothie recipes.  

People want protein smoothies for breakfast and/or protein smoothies for weight loss. 

Some want smoothie recipes that use protein powder and some want to keep their recipes using only whole foods and NO protein powder. 

Still others want 100% plant-based, vegan protein smoothies while others definitely like to use yogurt. (Of course, most people know by now you can easily substitute a recipe with non-dairy yogurt).

So I decided to create this comprehensive list of the best tasting protein smoothie recipes that satisfy what YOU are specifically looking for. 🙂

I have also separated this list with information of interest, such as whether you want protein smoothies no protein powder, dairy-free or not, or you need a chocolate fix! ENJOY!

A good blender can make restaurant quality coffee smoothies super easy. 

Always start with your favorite coffee, do not use coffee you wouldn’t drink on its own.
