So many people these days are lactose intolerant. This can get in the way of their health and fitness goals, especially if they often rely on supplements. Products like whey protein may contain all 9 essential amino acids and have low lactose content, but it is still derived from milk and can still have quite an inflammatory effect on the body. Luckily, I have the perfect protein shake.
Why am I sure it’s perfect?
Well, aside from the fact that it tastes incredibly good, it’s extremely good for you. It is a great source of proteins that are highly bioavailable to the human body. It has Pea Protein, with a formula that’s simple, organic and plant-based.
If you want to give Pea Protein a try, you’re in luck. You can purchase it here, along with other natural, organic supplements. And what follows is a really simple way to prepare it and make the best protein shake in the world.
Just grab your shaker, fill it up with filtered water, put in two scoops of your organic Pea Protein, and make magic happen by adding some flavor. And I don’t just mean any additive — I’m talking about chocolate.
Personally, I like to use cacao. I add it to my protein shake because of its amazing taste and high magnesium content. I’ve been adding Bonfire’s raw, organic Cacao Powder to my daily protein shakes for some time now, and I couldn’t be happier. I often add three spoonfuls of Cacao Powder into my protein shake, and it always tastes magnificent.
I’m also a cinnamon nut myself, so a few sprinkles of it always go into the mix. It tastes wonderful and helps slow down the blood sugar spike. It balances perfectly with Manuka honey, which I always use to add some sweetness and immune system boosting properties. Because of this combination, I experience a slow incline of that beautiful sugar release, instead of a sudden spike and a drop.
I also like to add bee pollen. If you’re not allergic to it, feel free to try. It can be so good for you. You see, as bees travel from one flower to another, they accumulate a few the nutrients they encounter. Bee pollen has 20%—30% bioavailable protein and is proven to help strengthen your immune system.
For the last ingredient, I prefer raw quinoa milk because I like my protein shake to be nutty You can use almond milk, soy milk or macadamia milk. I just chuck in a glass of raw, organic quinoa milk to create the perfect nutty flavor. And once everything’s added, I shake it. And there you have it — THE BEST PROTEIN SHAKE IN THE WORLD!
P.S. Obviously, your protein shake will be ten times more delicious if it’s cold, so be sure to get some ice in yours or store it in the fridge for a while.
