These ingredients for protein shake are (or can be substituted) for vegan ingredients. Here are some added protein add-ins to toss into your meal replacement shakes.

Protein “Add-Ins” for Meal Replacement Shake Recipes:

  • Greek Yogurt… is a great metabolism boosting ingredient to add to meal replacement smoothies. Just add 1/4 cup per serving. Get unflavored and unsweetened to make a strawberry protein yogurt smoothie. 
  • Collagen Powder… for our non vegan and vegetarian readers, collagen power is a great option. It has no flavor and 18 grams of protein. Plus you can add it to soups, tea… even your morning coffee!

Frequently Asked Questions

How many strawberries should I put in my protein shake?

Strawberries are a great add in to protein shakes, they add sweetness, color, flavor, and naturally boost metabolism. I recommend adding 1.5 cups frozen strawberries to each smoothie for the best results.

What can I put in a smoothie that has protein?

Adding ingredients like protein powder and collagen powder are popular protein boosters for smoothies. You can also add nut butters (peanut butter, almond butter) yogurt, milk or nut milk like almond milk to boost the protein in your smoothies.

Can I drink 2 protein shakes a day?

You can have 1-2 protein shakes per day to help boost protein and nutrition. If you are having 2 a day, make sure your protein shakes are equal to 350-450 calories so you do not suffer from a severe calorie deficit. I recommend 1 protein smoothie and 2 healthy meals per day for the best weight loss results.

Can I use water in my protein shake?

Water is zero calories and naturally boosts metabolism, making it a great add in for protein smoothies. Almond milk also boosts metabolism and adds a creamy texture, and cows milk works as well. More options are coconut water, brewed coffee, and refrigerated coconut milk.

Is it OK to drink protein shake everyday?

Swapping out 1 meal per day for a healthy protein shake is a great way to boost nutrition and lose weight. Make sure you’re adding in healthy ingredients like fruit, healthy fats (coconut oil, nut butters), and veggies whenever possible.
