Protein Shakes

There are a lot of reasons why people would supplement protein in their diet beyond “bulking up”. Once the domain of the weightlifting and body building community, protein shakes are now a common part of a healthy lifestyle*. They are low fat, cheap, easy to make and portable. For people on soft diets, they are a real treat and a key part of recovering from medical treatment*.  

I classify my favourite three protein shakes as Juicy, Chocolatey and Frappy.  

Juicy

Refreshing and tart and tastes just like an Orange Julius or Creamsicle.  I’ve also had success with orange pineapple juice for a Hawaiian feel.

Chocolatey

The taste of chocolate milk that you loved as a kid.  Is there anything better than Nesquik? I use Nesquik to flavour vanilla protein powder so that I don’t have to buy another flavour.

Frappy

My favourite treat for the 3pm slump is a Starbucks Caramel Creme Frappuccino but even a tall comes in at 267 calories so this Salted Caramel protein shake tastes just as good and is a little more diet friendly. You can mix this one in a blender but be aware that a blender adds more air to the mix so you’re more likely to feel bloated because of the air. Experiment for yourself and see what works.

Cool & Portable with Klean Kanteen

Additionally, I adore the Klean Kanteen range and have these in various shapes and sizes for hot, cold, soup, shakes, iced tea and coffee. They are worth the investment. My protein shake “ball” fits inside the Klean Kanteen so I can just dump all of the ingredients in a container and run out the door.
