Protein Boosts for Smoothies
Smoothies are a great way to ensure that your body gets a healthy variety of fruits and vegetables, and the Vitamix makes them so easy. You can enhance your smoothie with a protein boost at breakfast, after a workout, or as a midafternoon snack.
The Triple Berry Smoothie
makes a delicious breakfast, and keeps you energized with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and low-fat yogurt.
Cooling down after a workout? Reach for a high-protein-greens smoothie like the Emerald Smoothie
with fresh, leafy spinach to build and repair muscle tissue.
The Tropical Cooler
with tofu makes a light lunch or portable snack.
To boost the protein in other smoothie recipes, try adding nuts, soy milk, yogurt, oats, spinach, kale, flax, or chia seeds. Just remember that nuts and seeds should be the last ingredients placed in the Vitamix container, on top of your other ingredients.
