Protein shake recipe for weight loss

"The go-to protein shake I recommend to clients for weight loss calls for just a few simple ingredients: unsweetened almond milk, spinach, banana, protein powder, and peanut butter. This shake provides a solid balance of protein, healthy fats, and fiber, which can help keep you full and satisfied," says dietitian Kristen Carly.

The protein shake contains: 322 calories, 12.5g fat, 425mg sodium, 24g carbohydrates, 5g fiber, 32g protein.

How to make the shake

Blend 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, half a banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, a handful of spinach, and ice cubes until smooth and creamy. For a sweeter taste, add a drizzle of honey or a few drops of stevia extract.

How this shake aids weight loss

"This protein shake is like a weight-loss superhero. It's jam-packed with protein, which helps you feel full and satisfied, so you're less likely to snack on unhealthy stuff. Eating lots of protein throughout the day helps increase feelings of fullness and reduces hunger, which can prevent overeating and support your weight-loss efforts," explains the dietitian.

Additionally, the shake provides a balanced mix of macronutrients including protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates, helping maintain satiety and prevent energy crashes throughout the day.

Rich in beneficial ingredients like spinach, banana, and almond milk, which are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, this shake ensures your body receives essential nutrients to stay healthy and strong.
