Looking for a way to feel amazing and power through your day? I call this the Feel Good Protein Smoothie Recipe because it tastes great and it’s loaded with ingredients to support your gut and brain health.

Why It’s Good for You

The protein milk and powder provide energy and curb cravings, while flax seeds offer fiber for digestion and gut health. Greek yogurt adds probiotics, and the berries and kale provide a boost of antioxidants and other nutrients. Fun fact! Kale contains a type of sugar (not your regular table sugar) called sulfoquinovose (SQ), which feeds the good bacteria in your gut.

Feel Good Protein Smoothie Recipe


◦ 3/4 cup of protein milk

◦ 1 scoop of protein powder

◦ 1/2 frozen banana

◦ A handful of frozen strawberries (or any other berries!)

◦ 1 TB of flax seed

◦ 1/4 cup of 0% plain Greek yogurt

◦ A handful of kale



Blend well (at least 30 seconds). Add a few ice cubes to thicken or place in the freezer for 7-10 minutes.

Have fun with this recipe! Swap the protein milk and fruit for whatever you prefer. Looking for the right protein powder? Check out this link for my favorites.
