Best Protein Powder for Smoothies

We get asked all the time how to fit in enough protein into our diet and protein powder is such a great way to sneak it in without even trying. The great thing about this strawberry protein shake recipe is that you can use any kind of protein powder you like.

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:

If you asked us what kind of protein powder we prefer for this recipe, we’d say one of the whey proteins. That’s what gives this protein shake a cheesecake-like texture and flavor. Now that you know about our favorite protein powders for smoothies it’s time to get your protein shake on!
