Shake It Up
Want a refreshing treat on a warm summer day, or just need a snack you can sip while driving? Your challenge is to try a protein shake. Combining the fiber of fruit with the protein of milk and whey (a protein derived from milk during cheese making), this kind of shake is an ideal, balanced snack that is cool, sweet, and surprisingly filling. There are several recipes on the site for you to try. If they aren't to your liking, use them as a guide and try different kinds of fruit — berries andtend to work best because they're easily liquefied in a blender. If you want to make a shake thicker, add some crushed ice to the blender to give this healthy concoction more body.
