Tips for Boosting Protein in Your Smoothie Recipes

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 Berry Peanutty Smoothie has creamy peanut butter, banana and fresh red raspberries for a sweet and satisfying protein boost.

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 Mango Smoothie with low-fat vanilla yoghurt makes a light lunch or portable snack.

Tip: To boost the protein in other smoothie recipes, try adding nuts, soya milk, yoghurt, 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.
