Papaya Protein Smoothie

post-workout Papaya Protein Smoothie

This protein smoothie is perfect for your post workouts. It is also great for people on the move who need a nutritious meal without the fuss.

During hard lockdown last year, I decided to finally start strength training. I have dumbbells that have been gathering dust in my cupboard. I figured that hard lockdown was the best time to take up exercising and keep myself from going crazy.

As a result, I had to up my protein intake after a workout. I am a pesceterian and I have always been concerned about getting enough protein every day, and now I needed even more.

Hello soy protein powder! I use this brand, and not only is it the cheapest powder I have found, it also has the most protein per 10g serving (8,4g per 10 g)

I started experimenting with different flavours, and I sort of made this one by accident. We didn’t have any bananas left, so I tried pawpaw instead. Honestly, I really did not have high hopes for this tasting nice, but it was an unexpected delight.

Try some of my other variations here!

Let me know if you have some great suggestions for your own versions of a protein smoothie.
