Protein Smoothie Recipe

With Fall around the corner I HAD to share my smoothie recipe. TBH- I’m not a big smoothie person once the weather gets cooler. But in the summertime, I love a good smoothie everyday. Over the last few months this is the smoothie I’ve been making and it is DELISH. I highly recommend. 🙂 If you try it, let me know what you think!

Step 1: Add in the berries.

I’ve always heard to put the frozen fruit at the bottom so I always put my berries in first. I ALWAYS typically only use berries. Whether it’s just blackberries or a berry medley, when I tried keto out in the beginning of the year I learned that berries are low in carbs and high in fiber. And I really try to keep a low carb diet throughout the week so this is the only fruit I will use in my smoothies. I eye ALL of my ingredients and I think I probably use about a cup of frozen fruit.

Step 2 & 3: Chia Seeds and Protein.

I like to add in chia seeds to all of my smoothies because they’re FABULOUS for digestion. I deal with some digestion issues unfortunately and these do help me. Not only do they help with digestion, chia seeds are high in fiber and are:

  • low in calories
  • contains 11 grams of fiber per one ounce
  • contains 4 grams of protein per one ounce
  • Loaded with antioxidants
  • High in omega-3 fatty acids

Basically, I love chia seeds. And if you’re not on the chia train…. you gotta get on it! I also like to put in my water during the day or in juices.

So you get a little protein from the chia seeds, then I add in a protein powder too. I do about one to two scoops of Orgain protein powder. I love the taste of this stuff and it’s plant based. It contains about 10.5 grams of protein per scoop. They usually recommend 2 scoops for 21 grams of protein.

Step 4 & 5: Collagen and Maca Powder

More things to add! lol…I like my smoothies to be packed with good ingredients. I of course have to add in more protein and I really love collagen for my hair, skin, and nails but it also contains 9 grams of protein. No carbs and fat too! I also add this into my water or coffee. After that, I do about half a spoonful of Maca powder. I’ve been using Maca powder for about a year and a half now and love it. I put it in my smoothies because it helps boost energy and endurance. But here are some other amazing reasons to try it:

  • Increase libido
  • Increase fertility
  • Improves mood and possibly reduces feelings of anxiety
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Reduces sun damage
  • Improves learning and memory

Step 6: Coconut milk

You have to add in some sort of liquid to mix it all up. You can do water which I do on days I’m feeling really healthy, or even coconut water. But I like to do unsweetened coconut milk for a bit of a creamier texture. I fill until the coconut milk is just covering the mixture.

THEN BLEND!! We love our blender, it’s pretty high-tech but it blends everything beautifully.

And voila! You have a delicious protein smoothie that has potentially 30-40 grams of protein in it. It’s delicious and the perfect amount of sweet and fruity too. If you’re really feeling fun, I like to add some unsweetened coconut chips to the top of my protein smoothie for a little crunch! These are also perfect for at-home acaî bowls too. 🙂
