34 Surprisingly Delicious High-Protein Smoothie Recipes

"Not a bodybuilder? Enjoy a protein smoothie anyway! Studies show protein works as a building block for healthy skin, hair, bones, and heart in any ol’ person [1][2]. Plus, a protein-packed breakfast can prevent overeating, and a dose of protein after resistance training helps build and repair muscle tissue (especially when mixed with soy) [3].

Generally speaking, adults (18 and older) should strive to eat .36 grams of protein for every pound they weigh, per day. That means a person who weighs 150 pounds should aim to consume 54 grams of protein daily. Protein smoothies are an easy, portable, and (if you use one of these recipes) delicious way to guarantee you get your recommended dose.

The secret to mixing something up you’ll look forward to sipping is striking the right balance between protein sources, such as superfoods like Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and eggs, with sweet and/or savory add-ins—something all of the recipes below have nailed. In order to qualify for this list, recipes had to have eight or more grams of protein, be derived from whole food sources with minimal ingredients, and make us drool a little bit. Bottoms up!”

Going Back to the Roots with Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica

To see more photos and videos from Transarquitetônica, explore the MAC USP location page and browse the #henriqueoliveira hashtag.

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira invites spectators to step inside his latest artwork and explore a giant wooden maze at São Paulo Museum MAC. His largest installation to date, Transarquitetônica is a 70 meter (229.66 ft) interactive sculpture made of tapumes, a plywood material traditionally used for cheap housing in Brazil. As the piece’s name suggests, Oliveira’s work speaks to the concept of time and evolution. Spectators discover spaces of contrast, as certain areas reference today’s modern architecture while sprawling branches symbolize man’s first dwelling.

incredibly beautiful.
