Protein shakes a great way to make sure you are getting enough protein and vital amino acids in your diet. However, even when you mix up the flavors, drinking a protein shake day in and day out can get pretty boring. To keep your palate excited, here are some fun ways to mix up your morning protein shake:

 
 

1. Add Some Fruit: Simply mix your protein shake as you would normally but add a cup of your favorite fruit like blueberries, banana, or mango, then throw it in a blender. Add ice for a smoothie. You can also mix protein powder with your favorite juice. For example, mix a scoop of vanilla protein with a cup of orange juice for a creamsicle flavored protein shake.

 

2. Make A Oatmeal Cookie Shake: For a tasty way to add a little soluble fiber to your diet, mixing up an oatmeal cookie shake using the following recipe:

 

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
½ cup of milk (you can use dairy or non-dairy milks like almond, soy or coconut)
½ tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp instant oatmeal
1 cup ice (optional)

 

Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.

 

3. Make A Frappuccino: Use the following recipe to make a healthy version of the Starbucks favorite frozen coffee:

 

1 scoop chocolate protein powder
½ cup of coffee
½ cup of dairy or non-dairy milk
1 cup of ice

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

 

4. Mix Up Your Greens: A great way to get healthy fiber and phytonutrients is by adding greens to your morning protein shake. A simple way to do this is to simply add a scoop of your favorite greens powder, but you can also use this recipe for a fresher tasting protein shake:

 

1 cup of your favorite fresh greens like spinach or kale
1 cup of fruit like bananas, pineapple, or strawberries (for sweetness)
1 scoop of vanilla or fruit-flavored protein powder
½ cup of dairy or non-dairy milk

 

5. Get A Little Nutty: Add a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter to your protein shake and mix it in a blender for a boost of protein and healthy fats. We love the combinations vanilla protein and almond butter together, but our favorite has to be peanut butter and chocolate protein powder (Protip: Add a banana!)
