I love making smoothies for myself and the boys. During the last few months, several people have asked me what kind of protein powder I use in my frozen drinks. My favorite protein powder, in fact, the only one I use is made of egg white and stevia and is produced by the incredible Frank Zane.
Zane’s Frank Zane Egg White Protein Powder (or protein powder of your choice) is delicious any way you serve it. I love making a fruit filled smoothie for the boys after school and throwing in a scoop of this. It’s high in protein (25 grams per scoop) and low in carbohydrates (1 gram per scoop). While I’ve created this smoothie recipe using Zane’s protein powder, I have several others that I make for the boys as well, so stay tuned…
The boys love this drink and I love giving them this high protein piña colada.
½ cup water
½ cup coconut milk
1 heaping cup frozen pineapple
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 scoop Frank Zane Egg White Protein Powder (or protein powder of your choice)
2 ice cubes
- Combine water, coconut milk and frozen pineapple in a vitamix
- Puree on high speed until smooth
- Blend in coconut oil, then protein powder, then ice cubes
- Serve to hungry little children or thirsty adults
The boys also enjoy having this shake for breakfast. Given all the processed starchy things they eat, I like to get some of this pure clean protein into them whenever I can.
I’m looking forward to heading out to San Francisco this weekend with my husband and the boys for the Blogher Conference where I will be speaking about Best Blogging Practices. This will be my first Blogher and I’m really looking forward to attending!
