18 Natural High Protein Smoothies #vegetarian #smoothie #protein | hurrythefoodup.com

Since I joined the blog I have been craving a really tasty smoothie.

Dave keeps trying to find new ways to incorporate extra protein into his diet as he focuses on Freeletics and fitness, so I thought I’d feed two cats with one bowl (I don’t kill birds with stones).

This list of delicious smoothies only includes recipes with a natural high protein count – essential (including no protein powder!) for rebuilding muscle and strengthening up after a good workout.

Enjoy 🙂

Psst – want even more protein? Check out this list of high quality and healthy vegan and vegetarian protein powders at the bottom of this post.

  1. This is an exceptional post! I love that I now have so many options when it comes to morning smoothies – all on one page. Great post!

    1. Thanks Byron! Hope you’ll find a few you like 🙂

  2. I didnt know that smoothies can be that attractive !!!thanks.

    1. I know Shivani! I was very surprised myself how delicious they can be and still healthy 😛

  3. Great post! I love smoothies and have one every morning!!

    1. Thank you so much Sophia! I hope you found some new ones in this post to try out.

  4. Mmmm, nr #13 sounds tasty! I will check them all out. Thanks! 🙂

    1. Great!! Maybe you can let us know which one you liked the most 😀

  5. I’ve come to prefer a veggie laden smoothie over the ultra sweet ones. Usually a half banana provides all the sweetness I need along with plain Greek yogurt for protein. You’ve done a nice job in choosing a variety for this round up.

    1. Thanks Lydia! I totally agree with you. For me a smoothie quickly becomes too sweet. A banana is more than enough to sweeten a smoothie 🙂

  6. fab round up! pinned. 🙂

    1. That’s great thank you Sarah!!

  7. I think I’ll have No. 4! MANGO LASSIE SMOOTHIE… love mangos!

    1. hahaha, great pick! 😀

  8. I love this smoothie collection and I will share this for sure!

  9. WOA – What a lineup of amazing smoothies! That mango lassi one has me drooling uncontrollably…

    1. hahahah, well it’s definitely a tasty one 😀
      Actually I think it’s our first recipe ever

    2. 5 stars
      Thanks for the recipes. Really good taste. I tried all the smoothies and it came out very well. Love from India

      1. Happy to share! Glad you enjoyed 🙂 much love back to India!

  10. This is an amazing list of smoothies. I will go Mango Lassi at any time of the day…Yumm..!!!

    1. You are right Deepika, the Mango Lassi is an old classic, which fits to any time of the day 😉

  11. One can never have too many smoothie recipes! These all look fabulous!

    1. Indeed Jenn, thank you so much for your lovely comment!

  12. What a great list– I am always trying to come up with ways to make my smoothies higher protein with less reliance on powders. I have been using a lot of hemp seeds lately– I am allergic to soy, so relying on soy milk doesn’t work!

    1. Hemp seeds how interesting, wouldn’t mind trying that out some time as well. Thank you very much for your comment Michelle 🙂

  13. This is quite a colleciton, Howie…and many of my favorite bloggers!!

  14. This is a great collection – I love adding some protein in my smoothies, because it simply fills me up better & longer. Definitely a list to keep on hand 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Kat 😉 and you are totally right there, smoothies with protein make you feel satisfied much longer than other ones!!

  15. Great round-up! I always get stuck making the same old smoothie, so nice to get some inspiration from all these fantastic recipes!

    1. I know what you mean Donna I so often overmake certain recipes till I can’t eat them anymore and need to take a break…with this collection you have great smoothie ideas for a long time 😀

  16. Thanks for featuring my banana and almond smoothie (I’ve been meaning to say that since you posted but I’ve been slacking!). It is completely unintentionally high in protein – I just put in what I liked.

    There’s a few delicious looking ones on here. I’m definitely going to have to try the chocolate and peanut butter one as those are just my kind of flavours.

  17. Thank you Charlotte, your smoothie just had everything that we needed to fit into this collection!!
    The chocolate and peanut butter one also caught my eye immediately 😛 #chocoholic

  18. Great protein smoothie roundup! I’m always looking for different flavours to try out to keep things interesting…this post will be a great smoothie resource for me 🙂 Thanks for posting!

    1. Many thanks for your lovely comment Elysia. It makes me really happy that you find this compilation so useful 🙂

  19. I never comment on articles, blogs etc…
    However! I have to say AMAZING JOB! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Thank you for these

    1. Glad we were able to create something that helped you, Jenn!
