High-Protein Vanilla Smoothie
Life gets busy and that's why we love smoothies so much! This is a tasty vanilla High-Protein Smoothie which is delicious and easy to make.
Unlike most breakfast smoothies, which can be high in sugar and lack essential nutrients, this keto smoothie is low in carbs and high in protein to keep you full for longer.
It's ideal for those who follow a higher protein keto diet and are watching their fat intake.
If you want to use vanilla protein powder instead of plain protein powder in this recipe, you definitely can. I recommend using a high-quality vanilla protein powder that is naturally flavoured.
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tbsp almond butter or peanut butter
- 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Place everything in a blender.
- Process until smooth and creamy.
- Serve immediately in your travel smoothie cup.
Use protein powder to keep you full for longer
A number of studies show that protein helps your muscles to repair and rebuild after exercise. For that reason, many people drink protein shakes after their workouts to aid this process.
However, recent research suggests the amount of protein you consume per day is more important than when you consume it - therefore, you can choose which time you prefer or is most convenient for you.
