8 Protein Smoothies That Taste Like Dessert

Protein shakes have a pretty bad rep for tasting like dirt, and nobody wants to be chugging back green smoothies that taste like they’ve come from the swamp. We're confident that our protein powders will help you create a great-tasting shake, but to help inspire you in the kitchen, we’ve rounded up 8 awesome post-workout smoothie recipes that will refuel your body, whilst tasting like dessert…


Chocolate Mint Smoothie

Choc Mint Smoothie Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Active Nutrition, Reimagined For You.

We promise this green smoothie doesn’t taste like grass – although the colour is deceiving, it tastes just like a chocolate and mint thick-shake. How have we done it? It’s made creamy thanks to the frozen banana, avocado, and chocolate whey protein…

Triple Chocolate Shake

Technically this smoothie has not just three, but four different types of chocolate in it ("quadruple chocolate shake" doesn’t quite have the same ring to it!). The combination of chocolate protein and chocolate milk is great after a long training run or day out on your bike.

Banana Nut Smoothie

Banana Nut Shake Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Active Nutrition, Reimagined For You.

Putting frozen cauliflower in your smoothie might sound a little strange, but it adds extra veggies into your day, gives your smoothie a thick, creamy texture and we promise you won’t be able to taste it! Try it out in this banana nut smoothie recipe, perfect for refueling after a tough workout…

Choc Orange Smoothie Bowl

Originally designed for the summer season, we’re still eating this chocolate orange smoothie bowl no matter how cold it gets outside! It tastes like you’re eating ice cream for breakfast - what could be better than that?

Blueberry Pie Shake

We’ve taken the flavours from another one of our favourite desserts – a warming blueberry pie – and have turned it into a quick and easy shake. It’s also great for curing a hangover, thanks to the blueberries, protein powder and coconut water!

PB&J Shake

PB&J Protein Smoothie Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Active Nutrition, Reimagined For You.

Hitting the perfect balance of salty peanut butter, creamy banana, sweet vanilla protein and tangy raspberries, this healthy smoothie ticks all of our boxes. If you don’t have time to faff around with different layers, just blitz it all up together – we promise it’ll still taste awesome.

Valentine's Shake

Valentine’s day isn’t the only time you can enjoy this protein smoothie! It’s a little more complex than some of our other recipes, but when you dig into those tasty layers of chocolate and strawberry, you’ll definitely agree it was worth the extra effort. Go on, give yourself a little love...
