Protein Shakes Without Protein Powder

 

Protein Shakes As A Good Source Of Protein

The good news is that you can still have protein shakes without protein powder

The Protein Shake Base
In any protein shakes without protein powder, of course you need to create a base for your protein shake. You could either use water or milk – but milk is the best choice to achieve a thicker texture and richer flavor. There are different kinds to choose from such as cow’s milk, almond milk, soy milk, hemp milk or rice milk. The two most preferred are cow’s milk and soy milk. Cow’s milk is a good source of protein and calcium but it contains saturated fat, which is not good for the heart. An alternative would be soy milk as it has the same benefits only it’s cholesterol-free.

Protein-Rich Ingredient

Decide on what protein source to use. If you want to increase the amount of protein in your shake, you may add more protein-rich ingredients such as peanut butter, raw eggs or chopped nuts. Two tablespoons of your chosen ingredient are already a good amount of protein to use.

    I’m not so keen on the cow’s milk or raw egg, but love the idea that a protein shake does not need powder. You can substitute some ingredients for others…(almond milk in place of cow’s milk, etc.).
