4 Protein Packed Smoothies for Different Fitness Goals

Protein is the KING of all food groups. It can stimulate muscle growth, aid with recovery, and can help with maintaining muscle mass throughout weight loss.

With so many amazing benefits, consuming enough protein is just as important as exercise when it comes to reaching your health and fitness goals.

Whilst it's easy to understand the importance of adequate protein intake, actually hitting your protein targets is a whole other ball game. 

Protein powder is an easy, convenient, and inexpensive way to boost your protein consumption, helping you to crush any goal. However, drinking the same shake everyday can bore the tastebuds. So, why not chuck it in a smoothie?!

Smoothies have got to be the quickest and easiest thing to make. They are as simple as putting your ingredients in the blender, mixing them up, and enjoying the deliciousness. They can also be one of the most nutritious meals, jam packed full of healthy micronutrients that you're body craves.

Below we've shared some of our favourite protein smoothie recipes, each tailored towards specific athletes with different ambitions.
