How To Make The Perfect Protein Smoothie at Home

Who doesn’t love a good smoothie? Smoothies are a great way to provide your body with a whole host of nutritious goodies to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. One of those goodies is protein -- a protein smoothie is a quick and easy way to get the vital nutrients your body needs to recover from exercise and stay healthy.

Protein powders are a quick way to help ensure that your body is nourished and satisfied. Whether you’re recovering after exercise, it is recommended that you consume protein within 60 minutes of a workout or, if you’re looking to manage your weight, it is best to consume a steady supply of protein at each meal and snack to help keep you full. This is where Biochem’s award winning and innovative protein powders come into play.

So, skip the pricey juice bar or supermarket bottled versions—here’s how to make smoothies at home that taste fresher and are packed with health-boosting ingredients.

A Step-By-Step Guide to Creating the Perfect Protein Smoothie

Add your base liquid. Make sure the blender is in the off position, and then pour 1 cup of milk (almond, coconut, skim, hemp, or soy) or juice into the blender.
    • If you want to make a thicker protein smoothie, add a few ice cubes first. Then blend your ice and liquid on medium speed for about 10 seconds to break up the ice.

Add Biochem’s Protein Powder. Taking protein powder is one of the most efficient ways to ensure that your body is getting a proper daily dose of protein. After you add your milk or juice, pour the powder into your blender. Blend with the liquid at medium speed for 15 seconds.

    • Blending your protein powder with the milk before you add your other ingredients will ensure that the powder completely dissolves and doesn’t leave any chunks.
    • Follow the serving size directions on your Biochem container of protein powder to get the right amounts in your smoothie.
    • Protein will help support your muscles after you work out.

Add fruits, yogurts, and other ingredients. After you mix your powder and milk, you can add a variety of different ingredients to your protein smoothie. Fruits and yogurts not only add an extra boost of daily vitamins, but also add flavor. From nuts to frozen yogurt, your options are endless.

    • If you love your vanilla latte, try adding Biochem’s Vanilla Protein Powder and 1⁄2 cup of low-fat frozen yogurt to your smoothie.
    • If you love fruit, mix in a handful of berries, like strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries, and non-fat milk. Add your fruits after you've blended the powder with the milk or juice to get a smoother drink.
    • It is important to note that when berries are not in season, it is just as healthy to buy them frozen.
    • Feel free to play around with mixing yogurts, fruit, and nuts together to get your perfect smoothie. Add these secondary ingredients after you've blended your protein powder with your liquid and ice.

Gradually increase your blending speed. With all your ingredients mixed in, start at a medium speed. After you hear less of a crunching noise, especially if you've added ice, work up to a high speed.

    • Make sure to blend the ingredients for at least 45 seconds or until the fruit is completely dissolved.
    • Pour a little bit of your shake into your glass first and do a taste test. See if the consistency is to your liking.
    • If you see or feel ice chunks, blend the mixture again on high for another 10 or so seconds.
    • If your protein shake is too watery, add a bit more milk or yogurt to thicken it up.

Voilà! Now that you’re well-versed on how to make a smoothie at home, you can build your own blends using Biochem’s protein powders along with a wide array of healthy yogurts, fruits, veggies, and nuts to help you power your best life.
