You may think from my recipe posting that all I eat are protein shakes. Nah – it’s only one of my breakfast and snack options. But I do highly recommend them for the value that you get from the whey in particular, and from other concentrated proteins that vegans prefer. Besides, I get asked for shake recipes so often that it’s easier to post them than to continually have to email them. So here is the one more of my repertoire.

Makes 1 Serving

Blend:

¾ cup frozen strawberries (or others such as blueberries or a combo)
¼ – ½ banana (optional)
1 cup natural coconut water (preferable, but optionally, you can use water or your favourite type of milk)

1 tb. almond butter (optionally, can use organic peanut butter)

 When the ingredients above are completely blended, add:

1 scoop natural or vanilla flavoured whey protein powder
1 – 2 tb. ground flaxseed
1 tsp. Bioflavia (this is optional but highly recommended – it’s a super antioxidant from organic grapeskins http://www.bioflavia.ca/)

 Blend for the minimum time needed to mix the powder in. Blending too much will destroy the integrity of the protein. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
