A Guide to Protein Smoothies
Protein is an important nutrient for building muscle and overall health and wellness. Finding ways to add adequate protein to your diet can be challenging, and that’s where protein smoothies come into play. They’re quick, easy, and packed with fantastic nutrients that your body needs for whatever your health and fitness goals are. At Smoothie King, we take pride in our wide range of protein options that you can blend into your smoothies. From whey to vegan protein, we keep our guests in mind as they seek to Rule the Day.
FITAID® + Paleo Protein
This is a great protein option for faster recovery after a high-intensity workout. This nutritional enhancer is a complete, paleo-friendly protein that’s also an excellent source of vitamins C, E, B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6, B12, Biotin, and Pantothenic Acid. Mix this into a Get Fit Blend and off you’ll go feeling good about your fitness and nutrition choices.
Our keto protein is a balance of protein, fat, and carbs that contains type II collagen peptides. With only 1g of carbs, you’re able to stay focused on your keto goals. Try it in our Keto Champ™ Coffee and fuel up for your next task at hand.
Sunwarrior™ Organic Plant-Based Protein
A protein that is both organic and plant-based, this easy-to-digest blend aligns with both keto and paleo lifestyles. Plus, it’s free from dairy and soy. With 6g of protein, this blend of pea and goji berry proteins mixes well with any of our vegan protein smoothies. From our Vegan Mixed Berry to our Vegan Mango Kale, this protein makes a vegan smoothie an excellent protein source. An added bonus – most proteins can be swapped out for Sunwarrior™ Organic Plant-Based Protein!
Derived from low-fat milk, our whey protein is meant to help you reach your fitness goals by building muscle mass and strength. This protein can be blended into any of our smoothies and will add a nice, creamy texture to your drink. Our Muscle Punch smoothie is a great break-time snack or post-workout “treat.”
Our Lean1™ Protein is formulated with lactose-free protein, fiber, carbs, probiotics, vitamins, and minerals. Adding this protein to any smoothie can help you meet and maintain your goal weight. Our Lean1™ Pineapple Mango is made with fewer calories to help you crush your goal and set your sights on the next one.
This proprietary protein blend is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a “complete” protein, containing all nine essential amino acids, important electrolytes, and more. Ranging in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors, you can mix and match this protein with a variety of fitness blends, and is a fantastic hack for a low-carb diet.
