Protein Shake

Ever wondered what preservatives and other chemicals go into the readymade store brought protein shakes? Not to mention the use of corn syrup or heavy doses of sugar. So what are we actually consuming in the name of a health drink?..Ok ..I'm not trying to be a health counsellor or nutritionist.But, the point is if you make your own protein shake at home, you know what exactly goes into it and what your having finally is good fresh stuff.
So for all you health freaks out there, presenting the ultimate protein shake! This one is ultimate at curbing the satiety levels. So, even if you don't have anything else for breakfast, it can keep you going well till lunch time.It is also perfect for growing kids, due to their continuous activity and hunger levels.

Yiels: 2 large glasses
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups soy milk/ skimmed/ low fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon whey protein (optional)
Combine all the ingredients in a blender/ juicer and  blend to form a thick shake.
I have used blueberries and raspberries. You may use strawberries or any other berries of your choice.
Whey protein is not required if you don't do hard workouts or exercise.
While you may use options for milk, soy milk is high on protein.
