For example plant-based, whey, pea, etc! We actually did an entire protein powder review last year, but in case you haven’t seen it, here is, in our opinion, the best protein powder for smoothies:

Sorry Salman I may not have answered your question, correctly my apologies. I agree it’s confusing. It says yields 2 then 1x. Maybe someone can clarify for all of us. Is the serving size 8 oz and do we divide the nutritional information by 2?
Hi, Lee. I really love the Strawberry Cheesecake protein smoothie recipe of yours. I have made it by following your recipe. I really loved the taste. I wish I could send you the pic. It looks amazing.
Thanks for sharing the recipe, dear!!! All the best to you!! Keep sharing awesome recipes!!
Awesome Monique, all of them can be added as my morning ritual recipes.
Yum! I often use vanilla protein powder to give some extra taste and fluffiness to my smoothies. This one definitely looks amazing and I bet it looks even better. Must try!
love the use of crashed graham crackers as topping give it biscuit finish.
So easy to make and absolutely delicious. Definitely going into the recipe book. Thank you, thank you times a million!
I often make strawberry smoothie, but in a very simple way like strawberry and condended milk.
This recipe looks interesting. But why I don’t see any cheese in the ingredients? T.T
This actually sounds really good and I don’t even care for Strawberries. However, since I’m doing Keto I’d have to skip the crackers and “tighten up” on the strawberries and banana a bit, but it should still come out really good. Maybe even a little almond flour to give it a cracker type texture?
That looks like a yummy yummy smoothie! It’s rightfully a cheesecake blended into a glass! You have selected a very healthy combination of ingredients. It seems like many of the essential nutrients are going into 1 glass for you. I would love to have it for breakfast today!
