Protein Smoothie Power!

I was never big on protein shakes, but I am coming around to the protein smoothie as an excellent way of getting some extra protein, fruits, and veggies (depending on what you decided to include). I typically just throw the following into my mini blender: a Chobani Greek yogurt, frozen fruit, Neocell protein powder, and occasionally some calcium-fortified orange juice. I have never tried a green smoothie, and I am not really sure what’s in one!

I tried the Neocell after having a bad experience with hemp protein powder. Let’s just say I tried it several times, and it did NOT sit well on my stomach. Another FitFluential ambassador suggested trying out Neocell, since she also had a sensitive stomach and it seemed to work well.

Neocell offered to send me a canister of their protein powder to try out (Collagen Sport – 30g protein per serving); I chose the Belgian chocolate flavor. One thing I liked right off the bat is the flavor, and the second was that I could read every single ingredient on the back! It mixes well into protein shakes/smoothies–no grainy texture that you can sometimes get with protein powders.

I find that I sometimes lack inspiration for new protein shakes to try (like many others I am sure) so I asked my fellow FitFluential ambassadors to help me with some great new protein smoothie recipes to try. Here they are, so you can give them a try too:

 Neocell provided 30 Something Mother Runner with a canister of the Collagen Sport free of charge. I did not receive any other type of compensation for mentioning their product- I just like it!
