The Shrek Shake – A New Whey Protein Recipe

June 25, 2011 by Matt

This is a newer whey protein recipe I have been digging lately. Not only that but it is extremely healthy as well. You are loading your body with great iron from the spinach which will give you lots of energy and potassium you need for muscle health from the banana.

There is one variation I like to do with this that you might want to consider. To be quite frank Almond Milk is not necessarily the best milk for you. In fact I tend to stay away from milk, almond milk, and soy milk altogether because they aren’t that healthy for you.

However you can substitute one of two things here that will have a lot more health benefits for you.

1. Coconut Water

2. Coconut Milk (however if you do decide to use coconut milk you might want to add some water because this can be kind of thick so water would make it more of a liquid shake which you would want.

Either way these two are drastically better choices but try them out for yourself and see which one you like better as far as taste. The important part is that you get some of your undenatured whey protein powder in there. That is the cornerstone of why this shake is going to be so healthy for you and every other ingredient is just an added bonus.

So let me know after you try it what you think or if you found any other variations that you really enjoyed.
