Weight Gain Mango Protein Shake Benefits

Mango Protein Smoothie For Weight Gain In a Glass Cup

This weight gain smoothie is not only loaded with protein but many other nutrients too.

Some of the main benefits of sipping on this mango smoothie include:

  • High Protein Content: Protein is essential for muscle repair and growth, making it beneficial for bodybuilding and muscle recovery.
  • Energy Boost: The natural sugars in mango and banana provide quick energy, helpful for fueling workouts or aiding recovery post-exercise.
  • Muscle Gain Support: Protein is crucial for muscle gain, and this shake can be a convenient way to increase protein intake, particularly important in a bodybuilding diet.
  • Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: Mangoes and bananas are sources of essential vitamins and minerals. Bananas are high in potassium, which aids in muscle function and hydration, while mangoes are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants.
  • Hydration and Electrolytes: The banana provides electrolytes like potassium, important for hydration, especially after intense workouts.
  • Dietary Fiber: Both mango and banana contain dietary fiber, aiding digestion and promoting gut health.
  • Weight Gain Assistance: For those looking to gain weight, this smoothie can be an easy and healthy way to increase caloric intake.
  • Dairy-Free & Vegan: Using almond milk makes this smoothie dairy-free, which is beneficial for those with lactose intolerance or following a vegan diet.

You can also try some of my other bulking smoothies and weight gain smoothies. Some of them include: my 3000-calorie beast shake, or my 2000-calorie shake

All of these recipes contain numerous benefits, but their main benefit is muscle and weight gain!

Optional Smoothie Variations

While I absolutely love this recipe as it is, and I am sure you will too, there are some twists and changes you could make to it.

I was trying to gain weight, which meant I had to drink this smoothie for 7 days.

I got pretty bored with the same flavor on day 3, so I decided to change it up!

Each day, I tested a different variation.

These include:

  1. Chocolate Protein Powder: I made the smoothie chocolate flavored by swapping my vegan vanilla protein powder with a chocolate one. Worked a treat!
  2. Added Coconut Yogurt: If you are not strictly vegan, adding 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt to the recipe makes a huge difference in the taste and texture (in a good way).
  3. Nut Butter Power: I wanted to increase the calories per serving on my last day – so I added 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. It made the smoothie irresistibly creamy and rich!
  4. Throw In Some Seeds: To increase the fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, I incorporated a tablespoon of chia seeds and flaxseeds. 

All of these variations are optional, but I have to say, they were all very yummy, so I recommend them!
