Smoothies with Whey Protein

Smoothie Recipes with Whey Protein

A whey protein shake is always easy to make and will exceed your taste bud’s expectations. There is no better way to support your weight loss, workouts and health than allowing your body to utilize a non-denatured whey protein source. The shake recipes below will provide your body with a full range of native proteins and complete amino acid supplementation that your body needs to support cellular antioxidant production, healthy immune function, cellular repair and muscle growth. Your whey powder should be concentrate, not isolate. It should come from grass-fed cattle, and cool-processed (heat processing would damage the fats and proteins). We haven’t found any whey commercially available that meets those requirements. We use Designs for Health Whey Cool, which you can get from us. Just email [email protected] Shakes can be made canned coconut milk. (We recommend Wilderness Family Naturals, Green Polka Dot Box.) It’s the best choice for its excellent medium chain fatty acids and healing properties. You can also use raw milk.
