High Protein Smoothie Recipes from Diet and Fitness Experts

Pep-to-go All the Way to Lunch

"With protein and the comforting, naturally sweet flavor of morning oatmeal, this smoothie has everything you need for a quick hit of energy, and you probably have everything you need in your kitchen. The 12 grams of protein in the milk promise to keep you full, the soluble fiber in the dates and oats slow digestion and absorption of carbs (which control blood sugar) while helping lower cholesterol. It's a satisfying breakfast that will last until lunch. Got a Charlie horse? Don't go bananas looking for a good source of potassium — Medjool dates have more."

  • 1 packet nonfat powdered milk

  • ½ cup skim milk

  • 4 pitted Medjool dates
