How To Make A Protein Shake

October 2, 2017

 

  

 

Step One:  Add you choice of liquid.  I prefer water or unsweetened Almond Milk.  

Use 8 to 16 oz's for desired thickness and size.

 

 

Step Two:  Add Protein powder.  I recommend                     

           

 

 

 

I suggest Optimum Nutrition because it is one of the few protein powders that is inspected and certified by Informed-Choice.  Informed-Choice is a quality assurance program for sports nutrition products, suppliers to the sports nutrition industry, and supplement manufacturing facilities. It is a monitoring program that certifies that a supplement product and/or raw material that bears the Informed-Choice logo has been ‘skip-lot’ tested (tested at least on a monthly basis) for banned substances by LGC’s world-class sports anti-doping lab.  So you know you're getting a quality product and it tastes great too!!

 

Step Three:  Add handful of leafy greens.  I suggest using Kale or Spinach.  Either will blend well in any home blender.  These leafy greens are a good source of Vitamin K.  Your body uses vitamin K to activate a range of proteins, including proteins needed for bone development.  They also contain fiber, antioxidants and calcium. 

 

 

Step Four:  Add your choice of Fruit.  Bananas or berries are great in shakes.  If you like your shake really cold then use frozen fruit.  I like to peel bananas, cut them into slices and freeze them in a container.  The slices of banana are a great way to cool the shake without using ice.  A good rule is to only use half of the amount of fruit to leafy greens added.  This way the shake doesn't have too much sugar.

 

Step Five:  Blend and enjoy!!
