A protein shake doesn’t have to be just mixed with water and glugged down after a workout. In fact, you can enjoy them as a part of a balanced meal, to set you up for the day, or even to pack on the pounds.
We’ve put together some of our best protein recipes for every occasion to get you inspired and switch up your shake game. Let’s get started.
