10 Best High-Calorie Smoothies Recipes

If you are trying to simultaneously gain weight and put on more muscle, high calorie smoothie can be a delicious way to add extra calories to your daily intake. You need to replace the fat and carbohydrate calories that you've burned during your workout in addition to a slight increase in protein for muscle growth. High calorie smoothie is healthier and nutritious than any other product that promises the same result in additive, pill, shake or powder forms.

General Preparations for High Calorie Smoothies

Before making such healthy smoothies, you need to be aware of some basic guidelines: always use a clean cutting board; wash all of your fruits and veggies before consuming them; should you have leftovers, store them in the fridge and be sure to use them that day; Do NOT ever use raw eggs! You can, however, use a product like eggbeaters because it's pasteurized.

1. Add Extra Calories and Proteins

There are certain methods that can help you enjoy some personal-taste smoothies by adding extra calories and protein

  • Add an extra boost of protein with milk or protein powder.
  • Cashews, almonds, and peanut butter are great ways to add calories and protein as well as change the flavor. Uncooked oats can also be ground in a blender and added to a smoothie.
  • Pre-cooked and cooled grains such as barley, rice and oatmeal will also add calories and protein.
  • For added calories and protein with little or no taste, try tofu.
  • Whole milk yogurt will boost calories and protein.
  • If you don't have high cholesterol, treat yourself and add some ice cream for additional calories!

2. As for Lactose Intolerance

Any dairy items in these recipes can be replaced with one of the following if you don't tolerate milk very well. Possible options can include tofu, soymilk, almond milk, lactaid milk, soy yogurt, non-dairy creamer
