If you've been missing out on the campfire s'mores this summer, then these protein-packed donuts are just for you! I know, they look like they're loaded with sugar and ridiculously bad for you, but looks can be deceiving. Would you believe each donut is under 150 calories and contains less than 4 grams of sugar? Not only that, but these puppies taste incredible! Whip up a batch and see for yourself how tasty healthy can be.

Here's proof that no-cook snacks can be so much more than just a bowl of yogurt or handful of nuts. Strips of zucchini are a fancy delivery method for ready-to-go smoked fish. Beyond being a top-notch protein provider, smoked swimmers like mackerel are a source of ultra-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. These bundles of great nutrition are also an inspired appetiser for summer backyard parties. Make it better: When a snack attack strikes, you may not have the patience to assemble this recipe. Good news: The rolls can be made up to three days in advance and kept chilled.
A steamy bowl of soup is not something you probably crave when temperatures are soaring. This chilled version will help you keep your cool and load up on the heart-healthy fats found in avocado. Ready to thaw at a moment's notice, bags of previously cooked frozen shrimp are a quick way to add a healthy dose of muscle-building protein in a flash. Make it better: Cold soups are best served in cold bowls. So plan ahead and chill your serving bowls in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before you're ready to spoon up this soup.
With this refreshing recipe in your back pocket, there's no need to settle for boxed cereal when you don't want to make a hot breakfast. Cottage cheese is a fuss-free way to kick-start your day with high-quality protein. And since they're made up of almost 90 percent water, edible cantaloupe bowls are a stealthy way to bolster your summer-hydration efforts.
From Starbucks' Mermaid Frappuccino to Dunkin Donuts' neon Energy Punch, the summer 2017 drink trend seems to be led by two key descriptors: bright and bold. But with most of these drinks being offered for a limited time only—and most of them containing way more sugar than protein—they're only a treat to be enjoyed on occasion, if not avoided altogether by serious fitness folks. If you're feeling left out, good news: You can sip on a burst of color anytime with our tropical blossom protein shake. The combination of coconut cream, blackberries, vanilla, mangoes, and orange juice will tantalize your senses and help the flavors of summer spring forth. The added 32 grams of protein doesn't hurt, either.
