12 Ridiculously Good Protein Shakes

4. Peach Cinnamon Protein Shake

We all loved that cinnamon crunch cereal as kids, so why not create the ultimate throwback tribute and incorporate it into a protein shake? If you’re tired of the conventional chocolate and vanilla flavors, but still want a dessert-like taste, this shake is the ideal pre-workout snack. Myprotein athlete Chris Lavado is a fan, pointing out that “the combination of protein-rich yogurt and micronutrient-rich spinach, coupled with fast-acting carbs from fruit and cereal, provides that great pre-gym morning energy.” Get a handy testosterone boost from the spinach to give you that extra edge for your session.

2% Milk, 1 cup

Myprotein Impact Whey, Salted Caramel (UK) or Vanilla, 2 scoops

Ripe Peach, 1/2

Small Container Greek Yogurt, 1

Spinach/Spring Mix, 1 cup

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, 3/4 cup

Creatine Monohydrate 5G (if desired)

Crushed Ice, 3/4 cup or 4 cubes

5. Fruit Funk Smoothie

There’s nothing better than the taste of a cold fruit smoothie, but the calorie count can wreak havoc on your physique. With all the sherbert, ice cream and sugary yogurt that are typically packed into these drinks, it’s hard to receive any real health benefits from the fruit. Sticking to a combination of fresh fruit and similar flavored protein powder can make a smoothie that tastes just as good, with an added nutrition boost. If you want to up your micronutrient intake, try adding coconut water to the mix for some added electrolytes.

Myprotein Impact Whey, Strawberry, 2 scoops

Frozen Berries

Coconut Water, 8 oz. (Cold fruit tea is OK as a replacement)

6. Lean Green Smoothie

Juicing is all the rage right now, but if you don’t have the right blender you can end up with a chunky and unappetizing mess. To receive the same whole foods health benefits, minus the chaos, you can use a powder form. Although whole foods are preferable, this shake can help get you some of the micronutrients found in healthy super foods without all the time and effort.
