This Raspberry Chia Protein Smoothie recipe uses — you guessed it — raspberries and chia seeds instead of bananas to thicken the mixture into a rich, creamy consistency. Plus, the protein-packed seeds have the added benefit of fiber without any added sugar. Chia seeds are also excellent for digestion and help stabilize blood sugar. A low-sugar protein powder is also key to preventing spikes in blood sugar and providing long-lasting energy. So even if you do toss in some sweet cacao nibs, you’ll avoid a hard crash later.
