Looking for a healthy pre- or post-workout snack that actually tastes good? This sweet, berry-filled protein smoothie is loaded with antioxidants and packs a whopping 19 grams of protein per serving, making it the perfect smoothie to fuel your muscles and keep your body healthy. Team GHU TV is completely obsessed with this smoothie, most of all because it’s named after our hometown hero, Prince, who added so much flavor to Minneapolis and the world.
This healthy protein smoothie starts out with frozen cranberries and blueberries, and gets its protein from the protein powder, almond butter, and almond milk. Add some chia seeds and a bit of honey, and you’re ready to blend! We love BiPro protein powder and used the unflavored version in this recipe, but you can substitute other flavors like strawberry or vanilla that would also taste great in this drink.
After blending, you can serve this protein smoothie in a glass or take it to go for all-day energy. It’s got the perfect texture and flavor, and we think you’ll love every last sip! It’s so much better for you to make a simple smoothie with fresh, real ingredients than to eat a snack bar on the go every day for quick energy. Packaged foods can be healthy, but most are laden with excess sugar or calories. With homemade recipes like this one, you know exactly what’s going in to your pre or post workout snack!
It’s so important to fuel your workouts with the right nutrition. If you’re burning calories and building muscle but not feeding your body enough protein or nutrients, you won’t get the maximum results from all your hard work. Fuel up with a protein smoothie like this one and feel stronger, healthier, and more energized to tackle your workout—and your day!
