Main Ingredients

Ingredients measured out in bowls to make the strawberry and banana smoothie with protein.

The Best Protein Powders to Use in Smoothies

You can use vegan or whey protein powder in smoothies.

However, when it comes to the flavor I would suggest using a vanilla or strawberry protein powder.

You could also try a chocolate protein powder. While it might taste delicious, it could overpower the strawberry and banana flavors in the smoothie.

Another interesting protein powder flavor would be to use peanut butter. It might be strong but it might also remind you of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Yes, it adds a nice creaminess to the smoothie and blends well with the frozen straweberries.
