You can make Protein Shakes using the blender from your food processor but it needs a pretty powerful motor to get through all of that fruit so you might be better off investing in a smoothie maker if you want to make them regularly. Drinking bottles, smoothie friendly straws and popsicle molds make it easier to drink (or eat) your protein shakes on the move.

Easy Protein Shakes Recipes for Kids
How to Make Homemade Protein Shakes for Kids
How to Make Homemade Protein Shakes for Kids – “Whipping up a quick, healthful, and tasty protein shake that tastes like dessert is a great way of satisfying your kid’s hunger and (sometimes picky) palate, while fueling them with protein.” (via eHow)
Protein Breakfast – “I grew up in athletics and played volleyball through college. As an adult I stay active with triathlons and running and have come to respect the power of proper nutrition. Teaching kids this is no easy task, however setting the example is a good place to start and offering health options. Over time they too will come to appreciate and acknowledge the role that food has on our bodies. In the mean time make healthy, yummy and fun.” (via Gym Gab Blog)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake Recipe – For Kids!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake Recipe – For Kids! – “Sometimes, picky eaters might barely get the proper amount of any micronutrients in a given day, let alone the right amount of macronutrients. Protein is vital for kids to grow and thrive, which is why this shake might be exactly what they need.” (via Super Healthy Kids)
Kid-Friendly Chocolate Protein Smoothie
Kid-Friendly Chocolate Protein Smoothie – “The reason why I love making this for them on busy mornings is for a number of reasons. First, my younger daughter does not like milk. I worry about her calcium intake. Both of my daughters will not eat meat and I worry about them getting any protein. This smoothie is great for them because Breakfast Essentials packets have 13g of protein and as much calcium as a 6oz cup of yogurt. It gives me piece of mind that my girls get what they need from this drink. Plus, they really like it.” (via Sweet Charli)
Protein Smoothie For Kids
Protein Smoothie For Kids – “Finding Healthy Smoothie Recipes that don’t have strawberries and a few of the fruits that my son dislikes isn’t always the easiest. He certainly loves peanut butter and chocolate so this recipe was a win!” (via The Taylor House)
Protein Shakes for Kids: 5 Healthy Recipes
Protein Shakes for Kids: 5 Healthy Recipes – “Frozen berries are full of vitamins and antioxidants and one of the easiest fruits to add to a smoothie. Tofu provides some thickness and protein to the mix without changing the berry flavor. Try this simple recipe for a berry protein shake.” (via Health Line)
Toddler Plumping Shake
Toddler Plumping Shake – “My little one doesn’t drink dairy so I use vanilla almond milk and vanilla coconut yogurt. You can use any type of milk or yogurt of your choice. The calorie booster in this shake is the almond butter. This recipe will fill a 10 oz straw cup. It’s about 330 calories with the ingredients I use. I usually make enough for two shakes.” (via Jennifer’s Mentionables)
Berry Sunrise Recipe for Kids
Berry Sunrise Recipe for Kids – “This Berry Sunrise Smoothie is delicious and only has four ingredients so it’s quick and easy to make. Protein comes from PediaSure’s Grow and Gain Shake Mix Powder.” (via PediaSure)
Organic Protein Shakes for Kids
Organic Protein Shakes for Kids – The kids take over and make and drink their own protein shake. The Mango Lassi is packed with organic, vegetarian protein and no blender is needed – just shake and drink. The kids will have as much fun making it as they do drinking it! (via Perfect Supplements)
