If you are looking for a high-protein content to your smoothies, you’ll find most recipes suggest adding a protein powder to achieve it. These are around 120-150 calories for 20-25 grams of protein. It is a really quick way to do it, but there are conflicting ideas as to whether it’s good for you or not.

Many people do not like to use protein powders. So there are natural ways you can get to the same point. And one of the best ways to get it is from dairy products, for example, you’ll get about 14 grams of protein in half a cup of 1% cottage cheese and it’s only 82 calories.

The various milk beverages are not so high in protein with the exception of soy milk, which is just behind dairy milk in the amount of protein it has. Almond milk had 2 g per 8 fluid ounces and rice and coconut milk beverages have none.
