Nothing better than blending up some ice cold goodness to cool down the body & jumpstart the recovery process.

The only thing better than a bottle full of INFINIT? A bottle full of INFINIT Protein Smoothies!

We’ve gathered three of our tried and true protein smoothie recipes that we’re sure you’ll love. They are easy to make and all use the same ingredients so you can make them in the same week without having to run back and forth from the store. That’s a double win in our book!

 

Top Tips for Making Smoothies

  1. Don’t add your protein directly to the ice because it may clump on the ice and be more difficult to blend.
  2. If you use frozen fruit, decrease the amount of ice to avoid making the mixture a slushie — Or if you want a summer treat, add more ice to make a slushie!
  3. You can substitute any of the INFINIT proteins used for other INFINIT Protein formulas. For example, feel free to switch out :REPAIR for your Custom Protein Blend!
  4. We used almond milk in these recipes but you can substitute it for any other milk derivative (i.e. oat milk, cow milk, yogurt, etc.)
  5. If you want to get more veggies in, try adding some spinach for added volume but no change in taste!
  6. You can use flavored or unflavored protein powder
