Protein powders are bad news. They are full of processed ingredients that are usually by-products of the tofu or dairy industry. People always ask me what a good protein powder they can use for breakfast on the run but there are not that many good choices.
Whey protein can be problematic because many people are allergic and it is almost impossible to find a good protein powder that is not made from degraded, pesticide-filled, cow’s milk. A good one, if you are not sensitive, is grass fed cold processed whey, like this one, but an even better choice would be grass fed raw milk.
You can also put raw eggs in your smoothie if you get them from a farmer and they are pastured and soy free.
The best choice in my opinion for smoothies and shakes is the grass fed gelatin.
Benefits of grass fed gelatin
- helps heal the gut lining (very important for whole body health)
- reduces cellulite and wrinkles
- helps build lean muscle
- easily digested and absorbed
- reduces inflammation
- helps build bones and joints
- boosts metabolism
- helps balance hormones
Btw…..You can also get it in my awesome easy crock pot bone broth recipe!
Now that it is summer some people don’t like to eat hot broth.
Gelatin is a great way to get the benefits of bone broth without the hot winter soups.
Healing Strawberry Smoothie
1 cup coconut milk (full fat)
Or grass fed raw milk if tolerated
2 cups strawberries (organic is best)
2 cups of ice
Put everything in the blender except the gelatin.
Pulse until the ice is broken down and everything is liquified.
Add the gelatin while the blender is going for a few more seconds.
Serve and enjoy!
