I get a lot of people asking me what are the best “Protein Shakes For Women?“. There are a number of fantastic protein shake recipes online but I’ll share a few of my favourite ones. These recipes work with almost any protein powder so hopefully a lot of you will find these useful.
There are a few main steps to creating a good protein shake. The first step is your liquid base layer, this is extremely important because without this layer your shake may become to thick. Some good base layers are milk, skim milk, Greek yogurt, almond milk and water. Greek yogurt is considered quite good as it’s loaded with protein, however, you may find that it makes the shake quite thick so add a bit of water too.
The next layer is the contents. This can be anything really. Berries, bananas, apples, oranges are all great options. You can load up on a tonne of frozen fruits and switch it up as you please. Fresh stuff is good of course but I love having an arsenal of frozen fruits ready to be blended.
Finally, adding your protein powder is kicker. You can really use any protein powder you like. Having a nuetral protein powder will make it easier to create different options. I normally have a vanilla protein powder and a chocolate protein powder this gives me a bit of flexibility.
