4 Warm Protein Shake Recipes For Winter

  1. Black or Herbal Tea
    Freshly brewed tea makes a warm, soothing base for a shake. Start by steeping your favorite black or herbal tea, add 8 oz to a blender. Blend in chocolate protein powder (check out the Kathy Smith powder!).
  2. Warm Chai
    The aroma and flavors of chai are warming…from the cinnamon to the nutmeg to the cardamom. Start your smoothie by adding 4 oz of warm chai to a blender and adding 4 oz of warm unsweetened almond milk. Then add in chocolate protein powder.
  3. Green Tea
    A spark of caffeine makes this the perfect morning energy boost! Steep green tea, and put in blender. Add in protein powder, 1/4 C. raspberries, and 1/4 avocado. Blend for 30 seconds and enjoy!
  4. Mocha
    This mocha smoothie can be enjoyed either hot or chilled. Brew your favorite coffee, add in chocolate protein powder, and blend in 1 Tbsp coconut oil and 1/4 tsp maca powder.


I consider myself a pro when it comes to protein shakes. Years ago, I began training for a marathon and the workouts were intense! In order to keep my training program at its peak, I needed something to give me extra energy and muscle-repairing nutrients. So I began drinking protein shakes each day. What a difference it made!

Decades later, one of my secrets to living a vibrant, healthy life is having a protein shake on a regular basis. It’s a simple thing to do, but it has energizing effects! I’m excited to share this key to optimal health by introducing a protein shake I know is clean, natural, and delicious…Introducing the KATHY SMITH PROTEIN SHAKE!
