Easy Berry and Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie - without protein powder

Peanut Butter & Berry Protein Smoothie Recipe

Since recently going vegetarian, I’ve been on the hunt for easy recipes that are high in essential protein. I decided to come up with a recipe for a smoothie that’s high in protein but doesn’t include protein powder.

Don’t get me wrong – there’s nothing wrong with supplementing with protein powders from time to time. I just like to also try and create recipes that don’t rely on a powder for protein. 

So, with this peanut butter & berry protein smoothie recipe, all the protein is from the healthy ingredients and the complete smoothie can include almost as much as from a protein shake.

It really depends on the type of milk, yogurt and volume of peanut butter you include. I calculated that with the minimum of each ingredient, including a tablespoon of chia seeds, the smoothie comes out at 23 grams of protein!

You can use fresh or frozen berries and include 1/4 to 1/2 cup. If you’re following a low carb diet then include less berries and the lowest carb milk and yogurt you can get your hands on, for a lower carb smoothie. 

This smoothie can also be made paleo and vegan friendly by including non dairy milk and yogurt options. I like to add the minimum of each ingredients, taste and then add stevia if I think it needs sweetening and more peanut butter or berries if I want the flavour to move one way or the other. 

I adore chia seeds mixed through my smoothies for the texture and also the nutritional benefits, including even more added protein.
