Dairy Lovers Protein Packed Smoothie Recipe

Dairy Lovers Protein Packed Smoothie Recipe

This is currently my go to smoothie recipe when I need protein that’s easy to digest and assimilate. I like to consume half before and the other half after working out. It’s also great for breakfast and provides your brain with plenty of protein to function properly throughout the day.

Not everyone has access to raw milk (cow or goat), or chooses to consume dairy, therefore almond and coconut milk can be substituted. If you have access to raw milk, but haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend you do some research and consider giving it a whirl. Look for a blog post in the future covering all of the health benefits attributed to raw milk.

Raw eggs are called for in this recipe, which some people may be reluctant to add due to concerns over salmonella. Find a local farmer who raises chickens humanely and put those fears to rest.

Here’s a great resource for finding local farmers and anything else local you can possibly think of:

    This is a great shake idea. I haven’t found raw milk lately but grew up on it.
    I make my own raw nut milk so I will use that but I am not afraid of raw organic eggs.
    I use raw protein but miss protein from free range cows….
    I eat as much raw as I can but some cooked too.
