Are you new to the whole protein powder supplement routine? If so, you’re most likely struggling with mixing protein powders. You’ve tried mixing in a cup with a spoon? How’d that turn out? Clumpy? Yes, we know from experience.
First of all, congratulation. Protein powders are ideal for post-workout recovery. Experts agree that protein is essential for muscle recovery and growth. Protein is one of the body’s main building blocks for muscle, bone, skin and other tissues. And protein shakes are an easy way to get the protein your body needs.
“A study of 130 U.S. Marines looked at intense exercisers who supplemented their diet with 10 g of protein, 8 g of carbohydrates, and 3 g of fat. They had fewer infections, less heat exhaustion, and less muscle soreness.” Source, WebMD

Protein Powder Recipes
As for tasting good, feel free to experiment with add-ins. We like adding cinnamon to our vanilla flavored shake. But there are many great recipes. Some prefer using pineapple juice, while others prefer adding fruit.
