A couple of followers on social media have asked us if we can put more attention to healthy food and drinks! We do test whey protein for shakes and pancakes from time to time. Blackberry vanilla protein shake will be our first protein blog. Over the years we have worked and tested a couple of whey proteins. When whey protein comes with flavor, we have noticed, our shakes became very sweet! So for this recipe we are using organic and GMO free protein powder, soy milk and/or yoghurt.
In this blog I am going to show you how easy this healthy drink is! You only need a blender, whey protein, blackberries, soy milk, organic yoghurt and ice cubes! When you blend this on high speed you will have a good meal replacement recipe.
Like I have said earlier. To find a good brand of whey protein is difficult. Protein might be good for you, but then you deal with sugar. Not a real good idea when you want to lose weight or have diabetes. That’s why I like to make these protein shakes with GMO free protein and soy or almond milk. Organic is another important factor, because these powders doesn’t contain sugar that much! Vanilla is the most neutral flavor and is good in combination with fresh fruits.
Blender blackberry whey protein shake
When I am making a shake for in the morning, I am using my blender. This is the easiest tool for making protein shakes! If I may give you one tip, always start with ice cubes! Blender Ice cubes take longer time than blending all the other ingredients! The liquid part comes from dairy, almond milk or soy milk. For this recipe I am using GMO free soy milk. Low fat yoghurt is another option. When you mix all ingredients on high speed, yoghurt start to emulsify. This will make a protein shake smooth and creamy. You will get the same effect with soy milk as well.
