Protein Drinks Benefit

Delicious ways to incorporate protein into diet
Protein+Drinks+Benefit
Molly Seidel

Protein is very important when working out as it provides much-needed amino acids to build and repair muscles. and protein shakes and smoothies are on the rise. “The “sport-related” protein product sector is booming,” a 2013 BBC article states. There are many different recipes available online, specifically Pinterest. I have tried a banana protein shake recipe and a kale-pineapple protein smoothie recipe. Both found on Pinterest.

There are many different variants to protein smoothie and shake recipes, yet the one constant is a protein source. These sources can be classic protein powder, yogurt, or nut butter.

The previously mentioned kale-pineapple protein smoothie is one of my favorites. It consists of: kale, pineapple, almond milk, ice, and vanilla protein powder. I blend it thoroughly so it resembles the consistency of a juice. This is just a personal preference, but I believe it adds to the overall taste and presentation of the smoothie.

Another great protein shake recipe is: frozen blueberries and strawberries, spinach, almond milk, and chocolate protein powder. I think this is best enjoyed with as little blending while still creating shake consistency to give it a thick and creamy texture.
