4 Protein Shakes That Actually Taste Good

Protein shakes have long been the preferred beverage for gym rats. The purpose is generally to build muscles, but protein is also helpful if you’re planning to lose weight. They help to burn calories and keeping your muscles lean, so you can show them off once the fat fades off.

But where do you get protein shakes in Singapore? Some of them may not look that palatable to you. The ones available in stores usually come in big containers that make you think of cat food. The taste will probably remind you of it too.

But it doesn’t have to be. This guide will help you make your own protein shakes that actually taste good.

But Why Protein Shakes?

If you work out regularly, protein shakes help repair the muscles in your body. Protein is used to produce muscles, as well as create hormones and other cell components in your body. Having a cup of it right after your work out will help your body recover faster.

And protein shakes are a convenient source of energy boost. Most solid foods will take time for your body to process and digest before you can get the energy from it. Protein shakes are already broken down, making it easier for your body to get a quick energy jolt.

Peanut butter and jelly isn’t just for breakfast.

Total preparation time: 5 minutes.

2. Spinach Protein Smoothie

By itself, raw spinach might not be that enticing so just add some fruits for a natural sweetener.

For this smoothie you’ll need: 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of milk (soy or otherwise), half a cup of banana, half a cup of mango, and 1 cup of vanilla protein powder. Put it into the blender and mix it until it’s smooth.

For this smoothie you’ll need: 3 Oreo cookies, 1 cup of milk (soy or otherwise), 250 grams of cottage cheese, and 1 teaspoon of sugar (optional).

This one has a special ingredient: scrambled eggs. Before you gag, just know that you won’t taste it at all in the smoothie, and it won’t curdle up your drink.

Don’t believe me? Try it out yourself.

For this smoothie you’ll need: 1 egg that’s beaten and scrambled, 1 banana, half a cup of blueberries, 1 cup of milk (soy or otherwise), half a cup of orange juice, and a pinch of cinnamon.

First, cook yourself a scrambled egg and make sure it’s cooked through. After that, let it cool down first for a few minutes. Then, add all of the ingredients above inside a blender, and mix until smooth.
