Very Berry Protein Shake

smoothie

Shakes seem to be all the rage these days. The beauty of the protein shake or smoothie as everyone calls it, is there is no wrong combinations. You add what you like or take out what you don’t, simple. Some are into protein powders which are useful for boosting your protein intake and building muscle but they can be a bit expensive. Instead I use nutritional yeast flakes which I keep on hand at all times. They can be purchased at your local bulk store and are realtively inexpensive. Yeast flakes are high in protein, dissolve in liquid and are completely tasteless.

I would also suggest using fresh organic barries when possible. If fresh fruit is not in season or available frozen fruit will work just fine.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
