With these recipes from Holland & Barrett you can easily make protein-rich shakes at home in no time!

The Mass Gainer

The Mass Gainer is a protein shake with everything you need for fast and good muscle building. It’s packed with healthy fats, carbohydrates, and calories you’ll need after exercise. Adding peanut butter or nuts to your shake, for example, will provide you with extra healthy fats. Add a banana and oatmeal and you are full of good fibers! You can get on with that for a while. Top it with some more slices of banana, cinnamon, and some coconut flakes and it’s complete. Enjoy!

Yellow protein bomb

If you prefer not to use dairy but still want to get enough calcium and fiber, this shake is a great substitute. It contains tofu, a well-known and popular alternative to meat and dairy products because it is full of protein. Luckily, there are many alternatives for milk nowadays, think almond milk for example! Feel free to use it in your dairy-free shake. Please note that the protein powder you use is not whey or casein powder, this contains dairy. Luckily there are good ones for this too, so shake it!

Healthy treat for yourself

This shake is a delicious treat for yourself because it’s packed with healthy ingredients and is a great alternative to dessert. Of course, you can also just gift it to yourself after exercise! Because of the frozen berries and other fruits, this shake is a real candy and it’s also full of healthy alternatives, so you don’t fill yourself with unhealthy sugars. You can find the recipe here. Enjoy!

The Green Power

A green blast with great ingredients that will give you a boost! The shake contains tons of vitamins, minerals, and fibers that you need if you’re fanatically working out at home. The spinach provides a good dose of iron, which is good for transporting oxygen through your body. Something that is very important during workouts! This is especially useful for vegetarians because they cannot extract iron from meat. With a pinch of cinnamon, you can make it deliciously sweet and stay healthy at the same time. Here you can read how to make it.

For the amino cravers

Amino acids are good for building your muscles – see them as their building blocks. These specific acids can be found in whey proteins and are often found in protein shakes. But you don’t really need this powder for this shake! If you like to eat Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, this shake will be your new favorite. Give it a twist with some dates and nut paste and you’ve got a winner. Of course, you can also replace the yogurt with a dairy substitute – variation is always possible! Top it off with some seeds and you’re ready to go again. Enjoy!
