Now you can smile all you lovers of shakes…
This post is about the shakes that will aid you to be on top of you game in the weight loss process.
For sure, you will really find this interesting and helpful. You can now drink your shakes and still be able to lose good amount of weight.
The question still remains-which of the shakes are good for weight loss?
And that’s exactly what I am about to bring to you now. Those healthy protein shakes!
Alternatively, protein shakes can serve as foods for anyone trying to get in shape. And while some shakes you find at restaurants and food vendors are sugar filled, you can make your healthy, metabolism-boosting shake at home-very simple!
The number one reason people rely on protein shakes is for weight loss properties. Also, when you are trying to pack on muscles-whether for body-building or for increased fat-burning , you need all the protein you can get. And the greater the variety the better, in order to diversify your amino acid intake. Protein shakes are effective for keeping you at the top of your game.
In addition, protein shakes are great metabolism boosters. Protein fills you up, keeps you satisfied, and takes longer to digest, which means you will burn more calories and fat in the process. This is why protein shakes are also great for anyone on a fat-burning diet.
So, how can you make a healthy, muscle building, and fat burning shake at home? Here are my best protein shake recipes.
1. Berry Blast Shake
This one serves all purposes, whether you are looking to build muscle or burn fat. And the antioxidant support will support your overall health and fitness.
To prepare this shake, combine 6 ounces of acai or pomegranate juice, a handful of frozen blueberries, 5 frozen strawberries, a few ice cubes, and 1 scoop of plain or vanilla protein powder. Mix in a blender for 30 seconds and serve.
2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
If you are looking for a good meal replacement shake, this one definitely fills you up and keeps you satisfied. Plus, it will take care of any of those sweet tooth cravings you might have had!
Combine 6 ounces of soy or almond milk, a handful of ice cubes, 1 tablespoon of all-natural peanut butter, 1 banana, and 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder. Mix in a blender for 30 seconds to 1 minute and enjoy.
3. Tropical Recovery Shake
If you are feeling a little more indulgent, or just need to escape in your mind, give this protein shake a try. It’s great for promoting recovery after a long workout, or jump starting your energy.
Combine 4 ounces of pineapple juice, 4 ounces of coconut water, a handful of ice cubes, 1 frozen banana, and 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder. Mix in a blender for 30 seconds and get energized.
4. Fat-Busting Green Tea Shake
If you are looking for an even bigger boost to both your energy and your metabolism, this one has it all.
Combine 4 ounces of soy or almond milk, a handful of ice cubes (might need a few extra for this one), 1 scoop of Green Tea, and 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder. Simple, tasty, and packed full of the stuff you need to take on your day.
5. Muscle Mayhem Shake
For all the weight lifters and bodybuilders out there, this shake is designed just for you. With an extra protein punch and tons of vitamins and minerals to support recovery, you can’t go wrong.
Combine 3 ounces of skim milk, 3 ounces of soy milk, a handful of ice cubes, 1 banana, a handful of frozen blueberries, 1 teaspoon of almond butter, and 1-2 scoops of plain or vanilla protein powder. Mix for 30 seconds to a minute and serve.
