Muscle Building Smoothie Recipes

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Nutrition


Aside from the constant barrage of date requests I get from a fully intoxicated Britney Spears (that chick won’t take no for answer), one of the most frequent emails that’s been coming my way lately is a request for muscle building smoothie recipes.

So today I’m going to show you how to make a few of my favorite drinks. The ones that don’t kill brain cells, that is.

First things first- like mom always said…

“Turn down that goddamn music!”

“I found another condom wrapper and empty six pack under your bed!”

“You history teacher called and said you missed class AGAIN!”

“You failed STUDY HALL, you nitwit!”

“You’re ruining your body with all those tattoos!”

Wait…actually that’s what MY mom said.

What your mom probably said was, “Don’t eat junk food.” And she was right.

Most of the pre-made muscle building smoothies you buy in the health food store are full of artificial ingredients, sugar and junk food.

So use a high quality, grass fed protein powder and blend in the other stuff on your own. You don’t want my mom on your ass; trust me.

Like Snoop Dog I like to get an ample amount of fresh greens on a daily basis. Only I throw the greens in my shakes.

The question that always follows this statement is, “Can you taste the spinach (or kale)?”

And the answer is no, you can’t.

Aside from the greens I also like to throw in fruit, healthy fat and some protein.

Below are four of my favorite muscle building smoothie recipes.

1-2 cups mixed frozen berries

1 cup frozen berries
