The protein in this shake comes from 3 sources, egg whites, protein powder, and Greek yogurt, which are all high-quality protein sources perfect for athletes and bodybuilders.
Egg whites are high in protein and contain almost no fat or carbohydrates. Eggs are also high in biotin, which assists with tissue growth and repairs, and high in selenium, which helps to keep skin, nails, and hair healthy.
High carb, high fiber ingredients like banana and blueberries contain high amounts of vitamins and minerals that contribute to immune health and fuel for pre and post-workout glycogen stores.
- Egg whites: Use egg whites from a carton.
- Protein powder: I used vanilla-flavored whey protein powder. You can use chocolate or any other flavor, whatever you have on hand works!
- Greek yogurt: I recommend using non-fat plain greek yogurt to reduce the amount of added sugar and fat in this high-protein shake!
- Blueberries: You can use any type of berries or fruit that you like. I used fresh blueberries, however, frozen will also work! Just make sure they’re unsweetened.
- Peanut butter: Any type of peanut butter will work for this high protein shake, but if you want to keep it low in sugar or additives, make sure to grab an all-natural peanut butter with just peanuts in the ingredients!
- Banana: Both frozen and fresh bananas will work for this high-protein shake. Bananas are high in potassium, which is an essential mineral for high-intensity workouts (great for bodybuilders) so don’t be afraid to use the whole thing!
Are you worried about drinking egg whites? Don’t be. We break down how egg whites are perfectly safe to drink.
How To Make This Bodybuilding Protein Shake With Eggs Whites
Add all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. I personally recommend using a high-speed blender if you have one available, but it will work at high speed with any blender!
