Protein Smoothie Recipes for Muscle Growth

Is your schedule incredibly hectic? Do you rarely have time to sit down and eat during work? I understand your frustration. That’s why today I’ll be giving you some tasty, simple, quick, high protein smoothie options. All you have to do is throw the ingredients in the blender and blend.


Before we get into the smoothie recipes, consider trying plain protein shakes. Protein shakes have come a long way and many of them are actually delicious without needing to add any extra ingredients.

If you need the ultimate protein for maximum time efficiency (and taste), try a bottle of Premier protein.

If you’re willing to spend an extra 45 seconds to mix your own protein to save a few bucks, try Optimum Nutrition Protein. (FACT: Banana Creme is the best.)


Now on to the recipes!
