What Makes Delicious and Healthy Protein Smoothies?

A report by AIHW (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare) states that around 67% of the population in Australia is suffering from obesity. Most of these people are unaware of their toxic obesity levels. Also, only 31% of Australians engage in physical activities to keep themselves fit. That’s why there is an increase in cardiac-arrest, joint-pain, diabetes, and other stomach ailments.

To control the fat development in the body, doctors advise feeding on healthy protein smoothies. Fruits and vegetable smoothies rich in protein and other vitamins increase metabolism. Once the basal metabolic rate increases, the fat burning process also speeds up.

Let’s learn how to make the protein smoothies rich, delectable, and healthy.

Muscle Gain Smoothies

Fitness trainers and experts consume whey protein to gain muscle mass. They drink whey protein mix with banana, chia seeds, strawberries, nuts, and cold water or milk. Whey protein is made from milk compounds. Hence, it is a rich source of protein that’s essential for building the worn-out tissues.

While working out, the body loses excessive energy and gets depleted with some vital nutrients. Whey protein smoothies mixed with fruits and nuts can replenish the body with essential nutrients post-workout.

Weight-loss Smoothies

Having a weight-loss smoothie is one step forward to losing weight effectively. Consuming casein protein with other fruits and vegetable juices helps in cutting down the fat at a faster pace.

Casein is also another form of protein found in milk. It transforms into a gel when it comes in contact with your stomach acids. Consuming casein protein with oats, blueberries, raspberries, honey, and cinnamon powder aides in a faster weight loss.

Fruits like berries are a rich source of phytonutrients, and oats are full of fibre. Additionally, honey and cinnamon boost the immune system of your body. When all these nutrients and proteins enter your digestive system, the inner core is strengthened.

Leptin Hormone Regulating Smoothies

Vegans, vegetarians, and people allergic to egg proteins prefer consuming pea protein. Pea protein is made from yellow-split pea and high fibre legume. The fibre in pea protein releases essential amino acids and aids digestion. Pea protein tastes best with spinach, flax seeds, some healthy sweetener (Honey), tofu squash, apples, kiwi, and dragon fruit.

Apples, kiwis, and dragon-fruit are rich in fibre, potassium, and vitamin C that help in secreting digestive juices. Adding pea protein to the diet satiates the hormone called leptin. Fruit juices and pea protein make the best protein smoothies, as it makes you feel fuller for a longer time. It also stops you from binge eating and curbs hunger pangs.

Cholesterol-Controlling Smoothies

Obesity comes with high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. To lose weight and maintain the blood sugar level, dieticians suggest consuming brown rice protein-rich food. The rice protein is a form of plant-based protein, rich in essential amino acids but lacks lysine.

Smoothies made from rice protein and fruits like muskmelons, apricots, raisin, nuts, and orange are delicious. This health drink suppresses the elevated levels of fatty acids and glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase. It enhances the functioning of vital organs like the liver, heart, and kidneys. This leads to a reduction in cholesterol and improves oxygen flow.

You can try any of these smoothies to streamline your health goals.
