FAQ's & Tips
When using frozen fruits there is no need to add ice as the smoothie is already chilled with fruits. While using fresh fruits adding a few ice cubes will help in making a frothier and extra creamy smoothie.
If you are wondering what to add to a vanilla protein shake, then here are a few combinations that go well with it. Mixed berries (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry), banana, peach (white, pink), and pineapple are a few other fruits that go well with vanilla protein powder.
You can add vanilla protein powder to any recipe like mug cake, baked oats, pancakes, waffles, smoothies, chia seed pudding, overnight oats, oatmeal, and many more. It blends well with other ingredients. For baking, try to avoid whey isolate as it turns out very chewy and dry. Normal protein powder works well in baking.
You can definitely add raw eggs in smoothies for protein. However, eating raw eggs has a risk of exposure to salmonella or other food-borne pathogens. Though you can minimize this by choosing pasteurized shell eggs or egg substitutes. It is always BEST to consume eggs after cooking.
Do you want to make a mango smoothie without protein powder or looking for an alternative to replace it? In both cases, skip adding the protein powder and enjoy it as is. You can always add Greek yogurt or silken tofu to your smoothies for an extra dose of protein.
Do you know a protein shake works as a meal replacement? A healthy protein smoothie is a balance of carbs, fat, and protein, which is a building block for a one-time meal. Fruits & milk add required fiber, carbs, fats, and powder adds the protein component. Feel free to add avocado, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut flakes, and hemp seeds for fats if you follow the keto lifestyle.
How to serve
This vanilla protein breakfast smoothie is a perfect meal as a pre or post-workout snack. You can always pair it with your favorite meal anytime during the day. Make a mango protein smoothie bowl by adding other delicious fruits, avocado, chia seeds.
How to store
Smoothies are best when served fresh. But you can still make it in advance and store it in the fridge for 24 hours. Just shake it nicely and consume.
