Protein Shake Recipes for Women

This post looks at a few protein shakes recipes that are ideal for women. Most women might think that a protein shake isn’t for them, they may think they are only good for weight lifters, professional athletes, and the like. However, even the average woman can take advantage of introducing protein shakes into their diet. There are many reasons why these may be beneficial. Protein shakes are often made up of lean protein, fruits, healthy fats, and fiber. These ingredients can help women to build muscle, lose weight, and even add nutrients to a diet. Let’s look at a few great protein shake recipes for women.

Protein Shake to Lose Weight

This recipe is a great protein shake to lose weight while keeping you full for as long as possible as well. This recipe is one of my go to shake recipes if I need to cut my calorie intake in my diet. I will use this shake as a meal replacement for breakfast, lunch, or sometimes both. This shake uses Eas Lean 15 as its main protein due to the fact that this protein powder has a solid amount of protein and fiber. I find that this combo of protein and fiber helps to keep me full for longer. This recipe also has a little bit of flax seed oil. The flax seed oil has a ton of healthy fats in the form of Omega-3’s and Omega-6’s.

Recipe Calories and Possible Variations / Substitutions

This recipe has everything you need. It has at least 3 servings of fruit, it has protein, it has a healthy fat, and has a few healthy carbs. The above whey protein shake will end up being about 500-650 calories depending on the size of the banana and the number of scoops of peanut butter. If you want to lower the calories, you can do multiple things. First of all, you can cut out the oatmeal if you would like. This will cut about 100 calories. You will be getting fewer carbs, however, the banana and protein powder itself will have enough carbs to keep your body satisfied. Another way to lower the calories is by using a leaner protein. You could substitute Eas Lean 15 Protein Powder for the EAS 100% Whey Protein to cut a few more calories.  One last thing I want to point out is that if you don’t like peanut butter, you could use a healthy oil substitute such as a Flax Seed Oil.
