Protein Shake Ideas

Whole foods are always best, but some people are insist upon protein shakes. If you’re going to have a protein shake, it’s better to make your own protein shake rather than purchase a premade bottled shake that may be full of artificial ingredients, added sugar, and other unhealthy ingredients. In today’s hectic world, it’s sometimes more realistic to have something that’s quick, easy, and doesn’t require utensils to eat, and is still better than many other processed and fast food options.

If you’re not into protein powder, you can experiment with these recipes with plain Greek yogurt or silken tofu.
