Here’s my favorite green protein shake recipe. I do not like vegetables at all (or fruit too much either) so coming up with creative ways to get all of my nutrients is something that I’ve had to do. This easy green smoothie is what I drink almost every morning as part of my breakfast. It is loaded with protein and antioxidants to help get your day started off on the right foot. Aside from the awesome health benefits, I really feel like the biggest benefits of this shake are mental. It gets my day started off on the perfect note — I’ve had my protein and nutrients and it gives my a healthy and disciplined mindset before I ever step out of the door.
What makes green protein smoothies like this extra special is that they taste great! They might be green but it doesn’t taste like you are eating spinach or lettuce or whatever it may be. The flavor of this shake recipe is wonderful…even for vegetable haters like myself.
Feel free to vary up which greens you put into this smoothie. You can even change up which fruits you want to include as well. Experimentation is key!
If you get in the habit of starting your day with this shake like I do then you have to be at least a little flexible since you may not always have exact amounts of these particular smoothie ingredients.

If you are into organic, natural foods then you’ll love this protein shake recipe.
This honey banana themed shake is as healthy as it comes and uses only natural ingredients. This is great if you are cutting or are following a strict diet. Nearly everything in this shake is super healthy for you and you can add in additional vitamins or supplements very easily.
The honey should provide enough natural sweetness but feel free to add in some calorie free sweetener if you have more of a sweet tooth.
