This smoothie recipe is one perfect way to flavor up your protein shakes. The use of unsweetened almond milk not only makes this recipe dairy and gluten-free, but it also lowers down the sugar level of this beverage. But don't worry, the natural sweetness from mangoes and pineapples covers it all!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Instructions

  • Combine all the ingredients in blender. Gently mix until the protein powder is covered with liquid.
  • Blend everything until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Feel free to add a dab of raw honey to sweeten up your smoothie.
  • You may also add a tablespoon of chia or flaxseeds to amp up some fiber.
  • If your fruits aren’t frozen, simply add ice to thicken up your smoothie. Otherwise, if it’s too thick, you may add up some water or a little bit more milk.
  • For the vegan/vegetarian version, replace protein powder with a vegan one.
