Top 3 Protein Smoothies

Sometimes a bite to eat just isn’t practical even when you really need one. Think about it. Imagine yourself knocking back some Tupperware chicken and rice in a business meeting or a steak and sweet potato while driving the turnpike to work. It just wouldn’t work out too well.

It’s situations like these that smoothies come in handy. If made right, they provide you the same quality nutrients the prior mentioned meals will while also leaving you full for hours! With that said, here are our top three protein-packed smoothies that were formed with your fitness goals in mind:

1.The Beast

Ingredients:

  1. 20oz of Whole Milk

  2. 1 Scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder

  3. 1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter

2.The Berry Blast

Description: The Berry Blast is best suited for those looking to maintain their current physique. This smoothie is medium in thickness and the flavoring certainly mirrors the name.
