FMTV - Protein Power Smoothie

Protein Power Smoothie

Series: Keeping It Simple | Episode: 10 | Runtime: 3m 53s | Release date: 2006

This segment features: Jason Vale.

Smooth it up in the kitchen with this smooth Protein Power Smoothie recipe.

This smoothie contains all 8 essential amino acids, the building blocks for protein. The banana provides an incredible source of slow-release energy, as well as being rich in potassium. This helps promote muscle and nerve function as well as controlling blood pressure.  The celery will help flush the body of excessive carbon dioxide and replace lost sodium, whilst the cucumber is cooling and excellent for rejuvenating muscles.

Drink 30-45 minutes after a weight session and this powerful smoothie will help to repair the muscle and build muscle tone.

Serves: 1

Can you replace the banana with another ingredient? The banana makes me very bad 🙁

Hello Sebastian, you may omit the banana and add another half avocado :) ~ Pauline

Hi Julia, a juicer is best (see if you can borrow one). This is to ensure you're getting liquid nutrition with very little digestive load. You can blend as well but it's just a little different :)

The name of the smoothie is misleading. There is only 2.9 g protein, instead has 39.1 g carbs and 11.8 g fat. Yes, the protein has all essential amino acids, but the name is misleading to those who try to have proteins after workout to build muscle - instead they get carbs and fat which does not help to build muscle. It is very tasty though and I will definitely be making it again!

I just made this smoothie for the first time today. I liked it! It was a nice combination of sweet and sour. Thanks for this recipe, too! Am looking forward to trying more! How many ice cubes would you say is a good amount? I had put 3 ice cubes as a test.

Hi Thi, 4-5 ice cubes would be fine :-) Enjoy! ~ Iris

Why not just blend all ingredients? Why does he juice the apples, celery and cucumber ?
Team member | FMTV | 5 years, 6 months ago
Hi Angela, celery, apples and cucumber were juiced before blended to extract water and nutrients and discard the indigestible fiber. Avocados and bananas can't be juiced, therefore it's better to mix the ingredients to get full nutrients and benefits. :) ~ Pauline

I didn’t watch the video (and don’t have a juicer anyway!) so threw everything into my blender! Wasn’t too bad but had to add some coconut water for some fluid content. 🤭😀

Jason says "sesame seeds" but they look more like sunflower seeds... :)
