Creamy Protein for Everyday!
We try to go to the gym 3-4 days a week. And if we drank our smoothies laden with fruit and juices, that would amount to a lot of sugar very regularly. We decided to come up with an equally delicious low carb protein shake to enjoy guilt-free. The key, we knew, was to find a low carb protein shake as a base. Many of today’s most popular protein powders can have as much as 15g of carbs! Our favorite low carb protein powder is NOW Foods Eggwhite Protein with only 1.5g of carbs per serving. It tastes great and has a super short list of ingredients, which is hard to find. Ingredients are as important as protein and carb counts!
Update: we now use Isopure protein powder for most of our recipes.
You don’t want your protein full of fillers and chemicals. Check out Garden of Life‘s raw protein powder with organic sprouted protein and live probiotics and enzymes. Their list of ingredients has protein from so many organic plant, grain and seed sources. It’s great for vegetarian and vegan dieters and the vanilla flavor is amazing! Try it in baking! Speaking of baking, an unflavored brand that could come in handy for high protein baking is NOW Foods Whey Protein. Unflavored protein powder can add some thickness and amp up the protein content.
We created a creamy, high fat, low carb protein shake you can drink after every gym session without being kicked out of ketosis! Meet your macros while still enjoying your protein.
If you enjoyed this protein shake, try this Vanilla Chia Seed Protein Smoothie from Low Carb Africa! It makes for a quick and filling breakfast smoothie when you’re short on time.
Update: The correct net carb count is actually 4.5 grams! Please go by the written recipe below and not the picture, which is slightly outdated and this was one of our first posts ever!
