A few days ago, I created the most disgusting protein smoothie. Seriously, you probably didn’t expect for me to admit that. After making this smoothie, it promptly went down the drain! What if I would have served it to my friends?
I was reminded of how important it is to have FAIL-PROOF recipes… So I want to share with you my absolutely favorite protein recipe.
Every single time I make this recipe, the sparkling pear tickles my taste-buds. My kids don’t love it, but this one is for me. NOT for them. I’m obsessed.
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup spinach or kale
- ½ cup cucumber
- ½ cup
- 1 cup pear
- 1 tablespoon lemon or orange juice
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 serving unsweetened vanilla whey protein powder (I recommend Vega One Protein or Sun Warrior Protein)
- A handful of cashews or a splash of milk
This amazing smoothie packs around 31 grams of protein, and can easily be doubled in case you have friends over.
Enjoy this delicious smoothie!
