Week 7: Power-Packed Protein Shakes For Fast Gains

You know by now that eating ample protein is huge for your success in building muscle and getting ripped. But let’s be real, we all get sick of slugging back the same old protein shake day after day. Just looking at that murky liquid in our shaker cup gets old.

To save your taste buds from misery and give your muscles the boost they need, here are three of my favorite post-workout shakes. They’re all filled with unique flavors and are easy to whip up:

Blue-Blackberry Superfood Protein Shake

This is one of my favorite go-to shakes when you are looking for something sweet but minimal in the sugar department. Blackberries contain vitamin C and both soluble and insoluble fiber. Chia seeds are also packed with fiber, making this shake great for your digestion and gut health.

Ingredients:

Dump all of your ingredients into the blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy!

Lemon Strawberry Shake

This shake not only tastes amazing but packs a solid dose of micronutrients (like vitamin K and iron) from the kale. Kale isn’t my favorite on its own, but I promise you can’t even taste it in the shake. This one is great post-workout and for your overall health.

Ingredients:

Dump all of your ingredients into the blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy!

Chocolate PB Banana Shake

This shake is one of my old favorites. If you love chocolate and peanut butter, this is going to rock your world. It tastes like dessert—but with much better macros. (You can always swap almond butter in for that PB, by the way.)
