Summer is coming and from time to time you may need to cool down. You will probably need something packed with protein and energy, but light and refreshing, too. If you want a healthy smoothie packed with protein, stop searching, you have found it. This is a unique mix – it has berries and it tastes fruity and refreshing, and yet it has plenty of proteins and vitamins at the same time.
This smoothie contains about 20 grams of protein, but if you decide to un-veganize the smoothie and use milk, dairy ice cream or greek yogurt in addition, you could increase the content of protein even more. Pretty decent amount of protein comes from chia seeds and flaxseed oil, but protein powder does the most of the work.
The smoothie itself might be a bit thick when you are done blending. If you like it to be a little thinner, then just add more water (or milk, if you are not a vegan). Blueberries are full of antioxidants and they taste delicious, which makes them perfect for our smoothie.
This is a perfect combination of protein rich as well as tasty and refreshing smoothie, and you should give it a try, especially if you love summer tastes and protein shakes.
