Here’s a favorite recipe of mine – a protein shake, paleo style.
One serving of vanilla whey protein powder.
Two to three raw egg yolks.
One squirt of lemon juice.
One teaspoon of honey.
One heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder.
One cup water.
One teaspoon of gelatin powder (optional).
If you only have chocolate whey powder, you can leave out the cocoa.
It’s best to use a protein powder with minimal additives, and better as whey isolate (instead of concentrate) if dairy is an issue. Always be cautious with raw eggs, as salmonella can be deadly. Go with fresh, organic eggs. The lemon juice may aid with digestion and killing of bacteria. Also, pour in the gelatin slowly and stir before blending, to allow proper dissolution.
I typically use the Wholefoods 365 brand of vanilla-flavored whey concentrate, but another brand, MRM, has both whey concentrate and whey isolate that have minimal additives. A lot of protein powders have fillers and other junk in them – Wholefoods 365 and MRM do not. Colleagues of mine have used this brand before with only good things to say about it.
