Mangos are said to be the most widely consumed fruit in the world, and for good reason.  They are both super yummy and very good for you.

Mangos are high in antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, B 6 and, according to this Medical New Today article, they are a nutritional powerhouse!  Mangos contain the antioxidant zeaxanthin that protect eye health as you age, they reduce the risk of developing asthma, the beta carotene may protect against prostate cancer, the vitamins K is good for bone health while the fiber helps control  diabetes.

Add to that the health benefits you get from using Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder  which include a healthy dose of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle preservation (an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss).

This Mango Madness Protein Smoothie can also be made with our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Vanilla Protein Powder  and Plain or Vanilla Almond milk for a vegan option.

In addition to adding potassium and more fiber to any protein smoothie, I find just half a banana adds enough natural sweetener to enhance the flavour if using Boomer Nutrition Vegan Protein Powder.

For the love of  mangos – try one of these other Protein Smoothies made with fresh or frozen mango chunks: Spinach Mango Lime Protein Smoothie, Orange Popsicle Carrot & Mango Vegan Protein Smoothie, Orange mango Vegan Protein Smoothie, or this Orange Mango Sunshine Protein Smoothie.

This Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Smoothie adds a tsp of cinnamon to a plain Chocolate Protein Smoothie for a dash of added health benefits!

Cinnamon is made from the inner bark of trees called Cinnamomum and comes in two varieties – ceylon cinnamon, and the more common cassia cinnamon.  Cinnamon is made by cutting the stems of the cinnamomum tree, extracting the inner bark and removing wood parts. When it dries, it forms strips that curl into rolls (cinnamon sticks) and that can be ground to form cinnamon powder.

Some of the health benefits of cinnamon include:

  • source of antioxidants (more than garlic or oregano)
  • anti-inflammatory properties
  • promotes heart health
  • lowers blood sugar
  • helps fight diabetes
  • protects brain function
  • may help lower cancer risk
  • fights infections & viruses
  • protects dental health

Add to that the health benefits you get from Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Chocolate Whey Protein Powder  which include a healthy dose of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle preservation (an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss).

This Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Smoothie can also be made with our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Chocolate Protein Powder  and Chocolate Almond milk for a vegan option.

If you love cinnamon in your morning smoothie, try our Peach Cobbler Protein Smoothie or this Caramel Apple Protein Smoothie.

A smoothie a day can get a bit boring, so mix things up by changing fruits and trying recipes like this Peach Cobbler Protein Smoothie. Peaches are juicy and delicious in season, but can now be readily found frozen and are a great addition to any protein smoothie.

Feeling peachy is good for your health too. Peaches have been shown to ward off obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease. Peaches are also believed to have anti-obesity and anti-inflammatory properties that may also reduce the bad cholesterol (LDL) associated with cardiovascular disease.  Peaches are an excellent source of antioxidants like vitamin C & vitamin A, contain lots of fiber and even a gram of protein in every peach.

When using Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder in your Peach Cobbler Protein Smoothie you also get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

For a vegan option try making thisPeach Cobbler Protein Smoothie with almond milk and our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Vanilla Protein Powder  – as super yummy plant based option full of healthy organic pea & brown rice protein, and still includes our added B Vitamins and added Leucine for maintaining healthy muscle mass.

We don’t always get enough greens so adding spinach to this Spinach Mango Lime Protein Smoothie not only gives it a bunch of nutrients, but also a great green colour and it pairs nicely with mango and lime! Even my kids liked this one!

Lime is the magic ingredient.  I have posted recipes before with lime and it makes the biggest difference when you are adding greens to your morning smoothie, not to mention the juice adds a hit of vitamin C too.

Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium and vitamin C. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, protein and choline while the mangoes add vitamin C & K and just enough sweetness to make this one refreshing smoothie.

When using Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder you also get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

For a vegan option try making this Spinach Mango Lime Protein Smoothie with almond milk and our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Vanilla Protein Powder  – as super yummy plant based option full of healthy organic pea & brown rice protein, and still includes our added B Vitamins and added Leucine for maintaining healthy muscle mass.

Its summertime and what better time for a Watermelon Strawberry Protein Smoothie!

I am in love with the colour of this one – the most perfect pink, making it look irresistibly delicious! While cutting up a giant watermelon for the kids put some aside for yourself.  Freeze or use right away with some Ontario fresh or frozen strawberries and, if you have it, a sprig of mint. Yum.

Although watermelon is 92% water, you will still find 20% of your daily vitamin C, 17% of your daily Vitamin A and even 5% of your daily B6 in just 1 cup of cut up watermelon. Add in the strawberries and you are looking at 2 gram of fiber and a whole lot of Vitamin C in this very pretty Watermelon Strawberry Protein Smoothie.

When using Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder, you also get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

Avocados are getting a lot of attention lately so I was inspired to try this Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie. I love mashing half an avocado with my hard boiled egg on toast, I love guacamole and the long list of nutritional value in an avocado made it a good addition to any protein smoothie.  If you are looking for great way to add the health benefits of avocado to your diet, give this Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie a try.

Avocado’s taste great and are really good for you. They have more potassium than a banana, are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and contain lots of fiber  – half an avocado has 7 grams of fiber which makes up 25% of your daily requirement.

The heart healthy fats in avocados can reduce LDL cholesteol levels, while increasing in the HDL – good – cholesterol. Avocado’s can also help your body better absorb Vitamin A, D, E and K- as they are fat soluble, meaning they need to be combined with fat in order to be utilized.

 

This Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie made with  Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Chocolate Protein Powder, also gives you the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

For a vegan option try making this Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie with almond milk and our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Chocolate Protein Powder  – as super yummy plant based option full of healthy fats, and still includes our added B Vitamins and added Leucine for maintaining healthy muscle mass.

Caramel and apples go together like peanut butter and chocolate and when you combine dates and apples in this Caramel Apple Protein Smoothie you are getting a sweet treat without any artificial flavours or sweeteners.

Any kind of apple will do based on personal preference. A bit of tartness in a green apple will go great with the sweetness of the medjool dates, but a Gala or Macintosh or Fuji works too. Be sure to keep the skin on for extra fiber!

In addition to adding a natural sweetness and a ‘caramel’ taste to this Caramel Apple Protein Smoothie, dates are high in fiber, potassium and contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and zinc, B vitamins, Vit A and K. They are great for digestions, building muscle and bones as well as being a natural energy booster.  They taste amazing in these Triple Chocolate No Bake Cookies too!

Hemp seeds can be added if you have any.  They tend to be flavourless so get well in any protein smoothies. Hemp seeds are rich in healthy fats (Omega 3, 6, 9) and contain all 9 essential amino acids. They are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

Cinnamon is optional as it tends to take over.  If you’d rather taste sweet and not cinnamon then don’t add it.  Cinnamon does have its own healthy benefits but is not necessary in this protein smoothie.

When made with Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder, you get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

For a vegan option try making this Caramel Apple Protein Smoothie with almond milk and our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Vanilla Protein Powder (I recommend adding half a banana for the best flavour) or stick with our original Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Whey Protein Powder for a creamier version.

You will love the combination of chocolate and cherry in this Chocolate Cherry Chill Protein Smoothie. Cherries are a great addition to a daily protein smoothie for their many health benefits.

Cherries contain fiber, vitamins C, carotenoids and have the highest antioxidant level of any fruit which helps the body fight free radicals.  Sweet cherries have a low glycemic index, lower than peaches, blueberries and plums and they contain many anti-inflammatory compounds that may help to relive pain from osteoarthritis and can even reduce muscle damage after strenuous exercise. They are also a good source of melatonin which regulates sleep cycles.

Enjoy all the health benefits of turmeric in this lemony Lemon Turmeric Protein Smoothie.

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb in India and is commonly found in Indian cuisine giving curry that lovely yellow colour. Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, is a strong antioxidant and powerful anti-inflammatory. Both are an important part of healthy aging.

Turmeric – or curcumin – is also said to help ease arthritis, protect the heart, boost the brain and my fight diabetes and cancer. It also improves your ability to digest fats, reducing gas and bloating, decreased congestion, and can improve skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. There is approximately 200mg of curcumin in one teaspoon of fresh or ground turmeric.

When used in small amounts – 1/2 tsp – turmeric has a very light flavour so makes a healthy addition to the Lemon Turmeric Protein Smoothie.

When made with Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder, you get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

A favorite for sure, this Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie is simple to make and packs a protein punch with over 35grams of protein when you combine plain greek yogurt, milk and a scoop of Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder.

That might sound like it is too much protein in a single serving, but considering the average moderately active 150lb person requires 100 grams of protein a day this is about right if you are having your protein smoothie as a meal replacement in place of breakfast or mid day meal.

To reduce the amount of protein you can substitute water in place of milk or leave out the yogurt..

The strawberries in this smoothie are high in vitamin C and with their diverse polyphenol content, they also provide key antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. The bananas provide B6 as well as potassium, which has been shown to lower blood pressure.

When using Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder, you also get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

You had me at chocolate. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Protein Smoothie reminds me of a cookie or a muffin and that is how I like my protein smoothies some mornings. It is a meal in a cup – perfect for on the go, after a workout or if you need a mid day filling snack when dinner will be late.

Using natural peanut butter, with only one ingredient – peanuts – means you get the benefit of the protein while avoiding the hydrogenated oil and added sugar or icing sugar of traditional name brand peanut butters. If you haven’t already, make the switch to buying only natural peanut butter. A small change that makes a big difference when it comes to nutritional value.

The medjool dates and Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Chocolate Protein Powder add natural sugar to this smoothie, which may be a welcome flavour when using the natural peanut butter.

Using uncooked rolled oats in this smoothie means you get all the health benefits of 1 cup of cooked oats in just 1/2 cup of uncooked (difference is the water content of the cooked oatmeal). That translates into 6 added grams of protein and 4 grams of added fibre plus the benefit of thiamine, iron, zinc, selenium and copper.

Give this protein smoothie a try. I am pretty sure you will be back for seconds.

In order to ensure the quinoa is ground up and smooth I would add it to the blender or bullet first, maybe with a bit of the milk or water you plan on using, before adding the rest of the ingredients.

This Blueberry Bliss Protein Smoothie gives you the antioxidant and vitamin benefit of blueberries, which includes benefits for the nervous system and brain health.  Research shows that older adults can improve cognitive function, including memory, by daily consumption of blueberries. Combine this with the protein power of our Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder and the nutrient dense quinoa, its overall phytonutrient benefits, added protein and fibre and this is one filling smoothie.

Keep a few seedless oranges in your refrigerator and keep your freezer stocked with chunks of mango. When peeling the orange, include as much of the white outer layer on the orange when you blend it in your smoothie to boost the fiber content.

Adding 1 tbsp of chia, hemp and/or ground flax seeds to your smoothie will increase both the protein and fiber content by 2-5grams.

There is nothing better than a smoothie to get you going in the morning and, if made with the right ingredients, it can provide a mega dose of healthy nutrients too.

Blueberries have long been heralded as a superfood and for good reason. Blueberries contain fiber, vitamin C, vitamin E and powerful antioxidants that studies have found can lower blood pressure,  improve brain function, slow down aging process and protect against certain cancers.

Adding protein to your morning smoothie is a must as protein is a basic requirement to almost all our cells, hair, skin, tissue, muscles and enzymes. It also is responsible for making you feel full longer as your body takes time to digest protein. An average 150lb adult needs a minimum of 55grams of protein a day, more if you are active.

When made with Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Protein Powder you get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.

Make it a vegan protein smoothie by using our NEW Organic Vegan Protein Powders and almond, rice, soy or cows milk, coconut water or plain water.
