  • 1 cup frozen fruit or ice (banana, berries, etc.)
  • 24 servings protein (protein powder, nut butter, seeds, etc.)
  • 1/3 cup – 1 cup of liquid (almond milk, water, orange juice, etc)
  • optional: sweetener


  1. First, place fruit or ice on the bottom of your high-speed blender.
  2. Next, add in a few of your favorite protein sources. We recommend using anywhere from 2-4 different sources here depending on how much protein you’d like to consume.
  3. Add in 1/3 cup of liquid to start and an optional sweetener, if desired.
  4. Then, put the lid on your blender and blend on high for about a minute or until smooth. If your protein shake isn’t blending easily, add a little bit more liquid and continue blending.
  5. Serve immediately.
