One thing that I’ve noticed is the surge of nut-based protein drinks. The protein content seems to continuously include better quality protein. However, with the increased protein comes increased sugar. I tend to make those nut-milk based protein shakes at home and take them with me everywhere. I do this so I can control the sugar content in it. One of my favorites to make is my chocolate mint protein shake. It includes a whopping 21g of protein and NO SUGAR!
Here is what you’ll need:
*1 serving of unsweetened protein powder
*3 TBSP Steviva Ketosesweet Sweetener
*1 TBSP Cocoa Nibs
*1 Mint Leaf
*8oz unsweetened Cashew milk (or other nut/soy based- milk)
How to make it:
Add in the cashew milk, sweetener, protein powder, cocoa nibs and mint leaf into a blender. Blend on high until ingredients have mixed well. Serve chilled.
