3 protein shake and smoothie recipes for muscle building

Whether you’re looking to pack on some muscle or slim down to fit into your favourite jeans again, make these protein shake recipes to complement your protein powder, maximise flavour and boost results.

Protein shakes and other similar supplements are gaining popularity as a means of accelerating muscle building. Many of the recipes substitute milk for water, which may boost your calorie intake even though it will likely result in larger and stronger muscles after working out. Protein powder mixed with water can get fairly boring to consume, particularly because the majority of us can only afford to purchase one flavour at a time. However, all you need is a blender and a little imagination to transform your protein powder into a delightful surprise. Here are the recipes that will help you feel good, work hard and hit your fitness goals.
