Make Your own: 5-Minute Homemade Protein Shakes
Your Homemade Protein Shake Formula
Each shake starts with 3/4 cup of liquid and up to 1/3 cup of a main protein source. While there are specific ingredients for these categories noted in the shakes below, it's easy to make a substitution based on your own preferences — swap almond milk for soy milk, or Greek yogurt for silken tofu.
From there, each shake will take on its own style and flavor with the addition of fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. Each shake also includes a natural sweetener, in the form of dried pitted dates or a spoonful of agave. These ingredients are also interchangeable, or if you prefer, you can leave the extra sweetener out altogether.
