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.
