7 Food Combos to Make a Protein-Packed Smoothie Without a Powder


2. Quinoa and kale

This food combo is for green smoothie junkies like me. Why? Because its taste may be a bit plain (even if you add one banana, which I don’t recommend doing).

Anyway, a cup of uncooked whole quinoa provides 24 grams of protein and a cup of kale contains almost 5 grams of protein. This means you will get almost 30 grams of protein from this awesome healthy food combo.
