Learn How to Make Protein Shakes & Smoothies the Right Way

We’ll teach you how we make balanced, tasty, and nutrient-dense shakes and smoothies for meals, snacks and recovery

 How do we make great protein shakes and smoothies?

What makes a great protein shake or smoothie? What is the difference between a protein shake and a smoothie?

First, it is important to know that while protein shakes and smoothies are almost the same thing, their consistency and goal often differs.  A protein shake will usually have more of a thinner consistency and milky mouth feel with the primary purpose of delivering protein such as after a workout or as a snack. Meanwhile, a smoothie has a much thicker consistency, and often contains more ingredients, thus making it a great intense workout recovery choice or complete meal replacement.

So, it is important to keep your fueling objective in mind when making a protein shake or smoothie i.e. support workout recovery, replace a meal, pre-workout fuel, etc. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions about making protein smoothies for athletes.

The next step is to make sure whatever you’re making is balanced and full of vitamins and minerals in order to provide optimal fuel. Take a look at our tutorials below to learn how to make a protein shake or smoothie at home!
