The classic workout smoothie will never go out of style. Combining nutritious ingredients with professional-grade supplements is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve your athletic performance while also catering to your overall physical and mental wellbeing.

Whether you’re looking for a healthy post workout smoothie or something sweet and tasty to start your day, these easy recipes are sure to delight your taste buds while fortifying your body with goodness.

1. Strawberry Banana Protein Shake

Strawberry and banana is a favorite flavor combination for good reason. The sweet combination works wonders in masking the taste of those less-than-tasty supplements out there, although our whey protein actually enhances the flavor! They’re also packed with essential vitamins and nutrients. This delectable workout smoothie is perfect for starting your day as a meal replacement, and it also makes an easy post workout smoothie.

To make a strawberry banana protein shake, simply blend the following ingredients together:

  • LFTD. Whey Protein (we recommend vanilla, but chocolate works, too)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of ground flax
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • Approximately 12 ounces of water, milk, yogurt, or your preferred milk substitute (start with 8 ounces or so, and then add more until you reach your desired consistency)
  • Ice (if desired)

Not sure how much whey protein to add to your workout smoothie? Follow this chart to determine how much protein you need daily:

  • For Muscle Maintenance: 0.6-0.65* grams per lb.
  • For Moderate Muscle Growth: 1-1.2* grams per lb.
  • For Extreme Muscle Growth: 1.3-1.6* grams per lb.
