I just love smoothies as I can pack a lot of wholesome nutrition in a glass. My smoothies that I make are so healthy that they give me great energy to start my day and keep me going, does your coffee do that? I find that coffee does not give me lasting energy, although I do drink it later in the day for help with thinking. I find that coffee helps my mind work better, but not give me energy. My smoothies always have protein powder, fruit and veggies in them along with supplements like probiotics, omegas and matcha. I don't eat meat so I get some of my protein from my smoothies. I am always creating new flavors of smoothies and my latest flavor is strawberry grape beet. This smoothie tastes awesome and the beets not only add great nutrition, but it gives the smoothie a great thickness.
Strawberry Grape Beet Smoothie
1 cup grape juice
1 scoop Zahler Reach strawberry whey protein powder
1 cup diced fresh or can beets
( I like 2 tablespoons flaxmeal, probiotic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon Matcha green tea powder)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You can enjoy right away or make it the might before so you can grab it from the fridge for a breakfast on the go.
The protein powder that I used comes in flavors like strawberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Cookies and Cream, and Cappuccino so I can have variety in my daily smoothie. I used the strawberry flavor in my smoothie that I made. I also mixed the strawberry protein powder, by itself, into a cup of water and found the taste pleasant but not that sweet. So, my personal preference is to use the protein powder in my smoothies.
This Reach protein powder is made by Zahler and is great to use in smoothies or mix in water, juice or milk for an instant breakfast. My son likes to put a scoop of protein powder in a shaker bottle so he can later add water to make a great after running protein drink that helps repair his muscles.
People use protein powders for different reasons. Zahler's Reach is made with whey protein and is popular among individuals who have specific fitness goals, like athletes and bodybuilders. Protein powder is also great for people who want to add more protein to their diet. Protein is essential to practically every part of the body, from hair and skin to muscle and tissue. Whey protein has a fast absorption rate, which means that not only does it help build muscle, but it also helps repair muscle immediately after a workout. Whey is a complete protein, providing all the nine essential amino acids necessary for our bodies.
I love that this protein powder is low in sugar, has 2 grams of fiber and 110 mgs of calcium in it. The powder makes a great base for smoothies or mixes well into water, juice or milk. There are so many yummy flavors to choose from so you can make a different drink everyday. You can even use Reach protein powder as a meal replacement.
