The Very Berry Protein Smoothie contains a variety of essential nutrients and contains 30 grams of protein. Berries are high in a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They also contain a high amount of fiber which is useful for keeping you feeling full which prevents overeating. I recommend EAS protein powder (affiliate link). It is well regarded and is a best seller.
This smoothie uses a scoop of whey protein powder that is one of the most absorbable proteins for your body. Drink the Very Berry Protein Smoothie after a workout as a fun way to spice up how you use your protein powder and also get the important nutrients your body needs.
Also, if you are going no sugar no grain (nsng) or paleo, this fits fairly well as the berries tend to be lower glycemic. However, substitute full fat milk or water to cut sugars.
