Prep Time

One of the easiest ways to get a protein boost is by whipping up a smoothie. This one is made with edamame, which ups the amount of protein to 21g per drink.

The sugars are all natural, coming from the banana and milk, which also adds a ton of nutrients (like potassium) your muscles need to recover.
