While I prefer not drinking my calories, I can make an exception when I can keep the calorie to protein ratio low. Plus, it’s summer, and this is so refreshing! This is how I do it:
- ✔️1 scoop of protein powder (90 calories rather than the package serving size of two scoops)
- ✔️Water and ice instead of milk or juice.
- ✔️ Watermelon or other low cal fruit! (I used three cups fresh watermelon)
This recipe made two, 12 ounce glasses!

I you want to eat the drink it all, it’s only 182 calories and 16 grams protein.
