Smoothies are one of our weaknesses when it comes to nutrition and cooking. When done right, they feel exceptionally good on the palate, plus they can also be highly wholesome depending on the ingredients you use. Speaking of ingredients, the different selection can push your delectable smoothie to contain more of a certain nutrient which your body particularly needs. And what is one of the most desired macronutrients ever? Protein, of course! Everybody who’s into healthy eating and sport activity craves for high protein foods every day, and smoothies are a delicious and convenient way to absorb a lot of it. Should you happen to be a smoothie addict too, we’ll be happy to share with you some of the best protein rich smoothie recipes (well, at least this is our list, but we have a pretty awesome taste, so we hope you’ll be pleased too):

Cover the container and let it sit at room temperature for around 8 hours. Soaking the nuts will help them activate their true nutritional power and release some specific inhibitory enzymes which aren’t very favorable to our organism.
  • In the morning, strain the coconut and nuts from the water. Add the almonds and coconut into a blender.
  • in the 2 cups of filtered cold water.
  • Add the protein powder, ice, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, and coconut butter/oil.
