Getting Protein From A Smoothie
Each of us needs protein on a daily basis, as it is important for our body, but many people fail to get the protein that they are supposed to get each day. After all, we are advised to get 50 grams of protein every day, which can be difficult to get with the diets some of us have. And while there is also the option of protein smoothies, of course - which enable us to get a whole bunch of protein at once - these smoothies taste disgusting, right? Actually, if you know how to make a protein smoothie just the right way, it can taste delicious and still give you all the protein you need! Some people have been led to believe that the only way to make an effective protein smoothie is with such ingredients as milk, raw eggs, and peanut butter. But actually, with some protein powder, you can make a delicious fruit smoothie that has all the protein of one of those other ones. When you buy protein powder you have to make sure that the stuff you are buying is high-quality whey protein; if the protein powder is low-quality, it is no good, and it is also not giving you everything you need if it is soy protein powder. Secondly, you need to get protein powder that is either vanilla flavored or unflavored if your goal is to make a protein smoothie that still tastes delicious. When you buy the juice, bananas, and strawberries for your smoothie, make sure that all of the ingredients you are buying are fresh and organic. The best juice to use with these ingredients is orange juice, but if you have a different preference you can certainly try it out! As for the fruits and berries, you can also try adding pineapple or additional fresh berries; another thing to try is yogurt and - believe it or not - peanut butter! As for making the actual smoothie, it is quite simple: just toss the orange juice, fruit, and berries into the blender with the recommended amount of protein powder, and blend until it is smooth! Anyone can get the protein they need each day, all within a smoothie that actually tastes good; all you need is some high-quality whey protein powder, fresh juice, and your choice of fruits and berries! 500 Smoothies and Juices!
