1. Smoothie King Peanut Power Plus Chocolate Smoothie

Before we jump into everything, can we just stop for a minute to sample this insanely delicious copycat recipe? 

You can skip the long lines at Smoothie King and make this chocolate lover’s dream at home. 

It’s naturally sweetened with dates and bananas. It also has a double dose of protein. 

All that and it’s super chocolatey!

2. Banana Protein Shake

Looking for the best protein powder smoothies to get the morning started?  Here’s a fuss-free one.

Simple and quick, you can sip on this shake in less than 5 minutes. 

Frozen bananas are great because they make the shake even colder. However, you can use fresh too.

Either way, it’s a luscious, creamy shake!

3. High Protein Chocolate Almond Smoothie

Turn your chocolate-covered almonds into a nutritious smoothie!

Almond milk and almond butter are full of plant-based protein.

Add a scoop of whey protein powder for an additional boost.

For the chocolate, you’ll want to use cocoa powder because it will dissolve easier.

I also recommend adding in the coconut cream to make it thicker. 

When you feel a snack attack coming on, you’ll be ready. 

4. Strawberry Protein Smoothie

If you love all things strawberry like me, you’ll be crazy about this smoothie! 

Creamy and refreshing, it only calls for five ingredients, which includes a ton of fresh strawberries

Toss a banana in the mix for sweetening and thickening.

Full of protein and nutrients, it’s hard to pass up an irresistible protein smoothie like this.

5. Chocolate Strawberry Protein Smoothie 

Prefer your strawberries covered in chocolate? Here’s a smoothie just for you.

Between the strawberries and the cocoa powder, it’s utterly delicious! 

Spice it up with a sprinkle of cinnamon and infuse it with vanilla extract for a decadent twist. 

For protein powder, I like to use chocolate or strawberry flavored.

Vanilla works too, but leave out the extract if you go that route.

6. Apple Pie Protein Smoothie

Craving apple pie, but it’s breakfast time?

Indulge in your cravings, and make it a healthy breakfast too, with this delectable smoothie. 

All the ingredients blended into one taste almost like a slice of apple pie.

It has a nice blend of warming spices, plenty of apples, oats instead of crust, and almond butter for protein. 

Don’t forget the Greek yogurt for the whole a la mode effect! 

7. Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

Festive autumn drinks usually come piping hot. But this is a fun one you’ll want ice-cold. 

Dates and apples naturally sweeten the smoothie. Then, there are hemp seeds, chia seeds, and almond butter for protein.

Add a dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract to pull it all together. 

It’s like a yummy baked good, except far better for you!

8. Green Protein Power Breakfast Smoothie

Looking for an eggless breakfast alternative that’s also full of protein? Try this mean green protein breakfast machine. 

Between the spinach and the fruit, it’s incredibly nutrient-dense. 

Add a handful of pepitas and hemp seeds for another dose of plant protein.

It all comes together in about 5 minutes.

Whether you’re rushing out the door or only have a few minutes to spare, you can still squeeze in a nutritious meal.

9. Easy Mango Protein Smoothie 

For breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up, this easy mango smoothie is a treat any time of day.

The base consists of four simple ingredients, which include vanilla Greek yogurt, almond milk, and protein powder.

Of course, there’s frozen mango in there too.

To sweeten things up a bit, you can use honey or agave. But I think it’s plenty sweet without it.

10. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

You simply can’t go wrong with a classic combo like peanut butter and banana. 

The two go together perfectly and they have the makings for a super thick smoothie.

Blend one up and you’ll get 12 grams of protein along with plenty of calcium.

Plus, it’s a foolproof combination the entire family can enjoy!

11. Almond Cherry Smoothie

Give your mind a boost with this almond cherry smoothie. 

Whether you’re fighting morning grogginess or afternoon fatigue, this smoothie has all the brain food you need. 

Cherries are full of antioxidants and bananas are loaded with potassium.

Add spinach to the mix for even more vitamins and minerals.

For protein, give yourself a double serving with nut butter and protein powder.

12. Blackberry Banana Protein Smoothie 

This five-ingredient smoothie is an excellent choice for a meal on the go. 

It’s simple and quick, so there’s no need to fuss about the kitchen. Plus, it’s brimming with nutrients!

Use your favorite protein powder and milk. Full-fat cow’s milk makes it super creamy. 

But if you’re trying to cut down on dairy, try cashew milk. It’s still very creamy and it’s full of protein!

13. Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin lovers rejoice! Now, you can have your favorite fall flavor any time of the year thanks to this pumpkin protein smoothie. 

You need some pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, protein powder, and chia seeds. 

To make it sweet, vanilla stevia, honey, and maple syrup are all great choices.

Freeze the pumpkin puree to make it ice-cold and super thick. If you’re short on time, a few ice cubes will do the trick.

14. Berry Spinach Protein Smoothie

Enjoy a boost of antioxidants with this berry-licious smoothie. It’s a fine choice for breakfast and a healthy fruit dessert

Berries and spinach pack a ridiculous amount of nutrients into this smoothie.

If that weren’t enough, there’s also banana, Greek yogurt, protein powder, and chia seeds.

What I love about chia seeds is they’re full of fiber and protein, and all you need is a tiny handful. 

15. Creamy Avocado Banana Green Smoothie

Here is my go-to smoothie when I want something healthy and tasty.

The avocado and banana make it super thick. Not to mention delicious!

Aside from that, all you need is a handful of leafy greens, protein powder, and unsweetened almond milk.

It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and ready in a jiffy.

16. Mint Chocolate Green Protein Smoothie 

Minty fresh and delightfully chocolatey, this recipe gives a whole new meaning to green smoothies.

Like most green smoothies, it’s completely plant-powered. 

What’s different is it has a scoop of chocolate protein powder and sweet coconut nectar.

Don’t forget the peppermint extract to make it extra minty.

17. Raspberry Banana Protein Smoothie 

If you love creamy and fruity smoothies, you’ll want to give this one a try.

It’s rife with frozen raspberries and bananas. Meanwhile, almond milk makes it nice and creamy without an ounce of dairy.

Plus, it has a handful of chia seeds, which are a powerhouse of energy! 

18. Banana Peach Protein Smoothie 

Do you like peaches and cream? Then you’ll love this smoothie!

There is something whimsical about the combination of peaches and bananas blended with thick Greek yogurt (or one of these substitutes for Greek yogurt). 

Add a few splashes of almond milk to make it creamier and give it more protein.

19. Chocolate Banana Smoothie

This simple smoothie will have everyone coming back for more. 

Chocolatey and sweet, it’s 100 percent plant-based!

Plus, it only takes a handful of minutes to make. All you need to do is toss everything in a blender and enjoy!

20. Pineapple Coconut Protein Smoothie 

Make every morning taste like a vacation with this tropical delight!

This five-ingredient smoothie tastes like paradise and it’s good for you. 

Use unsweetened coconut milk, shredded coconut, and pineapple to cut back on some of the sugar.

Then, let fresh pineapple juice do all the sweetening for you.

If you can find coconut protein powder, it works great too. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with vanilla.
