Protein Shake Recipes For The Adventurous: Orange-Mango Shake

A protein shake – or smoothies as some people like to call them – can be as basic or as complicated as you want. We like to be adventurous here and find recipes that are, well, maybe not the first thing you would think of.

Many people, most in fact, spice up their basic protein shake. Most shakes come in multiple flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc. But that can get boring. So take some time to make it more interesting. We will have more recipes coming soon.

Today’s Protein Shake Recipe: Orange – Mango Shake

Check out the Orange-Mango Protein Shake recipe for today. Because you probably already link oranges and mangoes – why not put them together, right? This turns out to be a great combination.

Mmmm….mangoes!

Mangoes are one of my personal favorites of all time. But they can be a little messy when you eat a fresh, ripe one. Worth it though. I remember living in Fiji and we had as many mangoes as we wanted from the tree in our yard. As long as we could shoo away the local kids from knocking down all the green ones before they could get ripe.

Orange is a tart addition that mixes well with the natural sweetness of the mango. The natural sugar from the fruit will add to the calories for this protein shake so be careful there if you are looking to lose a few pounds. It is similar to the Pomegranate-Berry Shake in that respect. But the sugar is natural and not from pure sources. Here is the recipe:

Directions: Shakes taste best cold. Blend all ingredients together with ice in a blender until creamy.

Today’s Protein Shake Recipe: Pina-Colada Shake

The Pina-Colada Protein Shake is today’s recipe for the adventurous. Okay, this one is a no-brainer. While it may not be as unexpected as some of the other concoctions we have been suggesting it has become of our favorites.

This recipe calls for more ingredients than most of our protein shake suggestions. (Sorry about that!) But the good news is that is going to have fewer grams of sugar. Yippee!

The combination of the lemon and pineapple with the two types of milk is what gives it the tangy flavor. And the rum flavoring, while optional, is a definite plus to the combination. Using real rum; well that is up to you.

Some of our recipes, like the Pomegranate-Berry Shake are not going to be super sweet. And I think that is a good thing. Especially if you are using a protein shake as a breakfast meal. The zing will help you wake up! Here is the recipe:

Directions: Shakes taste best cold. Blend all ingredients together with ice in a blender until creamy.

Today’s Protein Shake Recipe: Chocolate-Orange Shake

Today’s recipe is the Chocolate-Orange Protein Shake. Because you might not think of these two tastes going together – chocolate and citrus – this is a more adventurous concoction. However it is definitely worth a try. (At least once, right?)

Maybe it is because the recipe for this protein shake includes Mandarin oranges instead of the more tart regular orange, the tastes work together well. As with the Pomegranate-Berry Shake, the fruit is going to add some natural sugar to your protein shake, but again the key word here is “natural“. Here it is:

Directions: Shakes taste best cold. Blend all ingredients together with ice in a blender until creamy.

Today’s Protein Shake Recipe: Pomegranate-Berry Shake

Today’s recipe is for the Pomegranate-Berry Shake. Because pomegranate is known to be a great antioxidant this is a winner.  And berries are a good way to sweeten the taste of almost anything. So why not combine the two?

The fruit is going to add some natural sugar to your protein shake, but the key word here is “natural“. You can also mix it up by using different berries to see what tastes the best for you. Here it is:

Directions: Shakes taste best cold. Blend all ingredients together with ice in a blender until creamy.
