high protein smoothie recipes for weight loss

Recipes, Smoothies

When you have a weight loss goal, high-protein smoothies are sometimes a convenient way to hit your protein target. I enjoy protein smoothies, especially when they are thick, creamy, and full of flavor. A good protein smoothie will feel much more like a treat than a “weight loss” food.

In this article, I’m sharing 12 High Protein Smoothie Recipes that can help you hit your protein goal and aid in your weight loss efforts.

My Protein Powder Recommendations

You can’t have a protein shake without protein powder, and while there is no shortage of options, they are certainly not all made equally. 

Over the years, I have tested dozens of protein powders and have found the following to be the best, most consistent brands:

1st Phorm Level-1

1st phorm level 1 protein powder

Clean Simple Eats

Most of the recipes in this post reference one or both of these protein powders in the recipe. If you’re looking for a premium protein powder, I recommend these, however, there are so many to choose from!
