Strawberry-Chocolate Paleo Protein Shake

Standard

Gone are the days of the traditional post-workout drinks. We said goodbye to soy a long time ago, along with the other artificial-ingredient packed protein shakes on the market. I also avoid dairy, so whey protein is not really an option either, though if you do decide to stick with whey, there are some excellent grass-fed whey proteins on the market. But better yet is egg-white protein powder (not that the yolk is bad!) and collagen protein powder. Both make equally good substitutes to the more traditional soy and whey options and, when mixed into a Shake like in this recipe, it would be hard-pressed to tell the difference…

INGREDIENTS

4 ice cubes
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 scoop (20-30 grams) protein powder (I like MRM All Natural Egg-White Protein and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides)
1/4 cup strawberries
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon honey or raw agave nectar

RECIPE

Place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.

Strawberry Chocolate Paleo Protein Shake Process
Blend for about 1 minute.
Pour into a tall glass and enjoy while cool.

Strawberries provide an immune boost, cacao powder delivers antioxidants, protein powder helps your muscles heal and grow and baking soda balances out the acidity in your body.

Here’s to you, your health and your workout!
