My Top 10 Shake + Smoothie Recipes

As some of you may know, I am coming to the end of my liquids era (whoo)!! However, I’ve definitely found some really good smoothie/shake recipes along the way. I made sure to save the recipes for all my favorites; some are nice and “clean”, while others are more decadent.

*For every recipe I added a little crushed iced (1/4 cup approx.) and a splash of water. I used a nutribullet for each shake although I’m sure other blenders would work too! Also! At the end of all the recipes I have listed easy ways to decrease the overall calories, carbs, and fats. Keep in mind that these were my only source of nutrients throughout the day so the recipes are large; that being said, you can definitely cut these recipes in half. But keep reading below for other easy ways to decrease the overall calories & macros.

    These are great! What do you recommend for those with dairy allergies?

      Hey! So I guess I would try substituting with almond or soy milk, and then there are dairy free yogurts and ice creams!

        I usually eat cashew yogurt by Forager which is amazing. I just didn’t know if you aimed for a specific ratio in carbs and proteins with your yogurt or milk selections. Thanks for the great content & the reply! ?

      I actually don’t really use protein powder anymore, which is crazy haha. I haven’t used it in like a year ? ON, Elite, and muscle pharm are some good options!
