Rachel’s Protein Shake

June 2015

2 Tbsp. Collagen Hydrolysate

Half serving of Orgain (1 scoop)

Alternatives in Protein Powders See Protein Powders

about 1/2-1 tsp. of milk thistle seed powder (for fiber and liver health)

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (I do not measure. It’s low calorie.)

Tips:

No lumps. Best way to shake it: put 1/2 cup liquid in a jar. Put the powder on top and shake. Helps also to have an ice cube—acts as a shaker ball. Little bits of ice are annoying when trying to down the shake.

Mix powders first before  you add liquid. If you have clumps in your powder, they will not shake out. Mixing all the powders ahead contributes to smoother end product.

Fast Food. I usually measure up several servings into dry, cleaned 12 oz mayo jars. So, when I put in my water I just make sure to shake it immediately and vigorously!

Other things you can add:

Greenfood powder (I like to take mine separately and not every day)

Potato starch to feed your gut flora

Chia seeds for minerals and fiber

Flavorings:

Organic peanut butter powder

KAL stevia extract powder

unsweetened Cocoa powder

frozen strawberries or blueberries in the blender

The Liquids:

Cheapest liquid: water.

Creamier shake: Any type of milk beverage…

  1. Goat milk
  2. Raw milk (for dairy tolerant)
  3. Non-homogenized milk, low-temp/Vat pasteurized
  4. Or for non-dairy folks like me:
    • Silk brand NON-GMO unsweetened Almond Milk Beverage (Many grocery stores. Costco customers: Vanilla flavor comes in a box of 3 half-gallons)
    • Blue Diamond brand unsweetened Almond Milk from the refrigerator section of many grocery stores
  5. Use your imagination – kefir, yogurt in blender
Bliss Granola and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Chocolate beverage

Bliss Granola and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Chocolate beverage. Use chocolate milk in your protein shake to up the yumminess!

Chocolate Blast!

When my protein powder contains cocoa, I like to use chocolate milk. I order a case of 12 quarts which are shelf stable.

Shown here next to my daughter’s favorite granola (which also comes in Gluten Free). She loves chocolate too.
