Protein Shake

Protein Shake
For those who exercise quite hard and take or think you should take protein drinks then how about making your own?
I know many people who exercise who take these
So I thought I would do a little research and make my own
Cost wise it is a no-brainer against the cost of most Protein powders I made one today and it was nice. It tasted good, my son was my guinea pig/taste tester and has been a protein drink customer in the past and it got the thumbs up from him.
The protein shake is 3/4 cup of liquid and 1/3 cup of your main protein

Liquids:-
Almond milk, Coconut milk or water or Soya milk… It important to get the right balance not what liquid you choose.

Proteins:-
Greek yogurt, Silken tofu, nut butter i.e raw cashews (which) require soaking overnight to soften.

Extra proteins:-
Chia seeds, hemp hearts, ground flax or whole oats.

Today I made a Raspberry Protein shake and for an extra boost could have used chia seeds.

Raspberry Protein shake.
Ingredients:
3/4 cup of coconut water
1/3 cup of greek yogurt
1/2 cup of frozen raspberries
1/2 medium beetroot(raw) peeled and diced.
1 tbsp honey (optional)
1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)

Let’s, Blitz!

Measure all the ingredients into your blender and blitz away.
The color was amazing, a beautiful color and it tasted very nice not too sweet and I did add honey.
Having never had a protein drink, so I do not know what they taste like, although I have listened to others who say well they don’t taste great although I drink them anyway,  really!
I like to drink something which tastes pleasant. Enjoy!
