Why not try chia seeds in your smoothies? I have recently started eating/drinking these and find they really help me to stay fuller for longer. They are packed with protein and fibre, too.

I agree, the greek yogurt is a better option.

I looked at your nutrition tracker, and I see no need for more protein. It looks like you are getting about 60-100 grams daily.

For your smoothie---use greek yogurt and if you want to get a little more protein add nonfat dry milk powder. It will give you a little more protein and is much less expensive.

I use Designer Whey Vanilla. It is natural and doesn't have the artificial sugar in it. I buy it on Puritan Pride website and it's a reasonable cost. Me personally, I stay away from anything that has artificial sugar in it.

I love EAS Whey Protein ~ it's easy to find (I buy it at Target), it's not super expensive, and it has a lot of protein. It also has LOW sodium, fat, carbs, etc. I add it to my green smoothies.
