Smoothie Protein Sources
by Danielle D'Amours
Question: What form of protein do you recommend for smoothies, for over all health and economy too? I have heard some caution about too much yogurt or dairy. Soy powder also apparently has some drawbacks, particularly for older women and those with thyroid issues.
A little bit of plain good quality yogurt is okay to use. But I would not recommend it every day.
My favorite source of protein for smoothies is hemp protein
. It is well-balanced.
Plus, it has other benefits that other protein powders don't have. It contains a lot of fiber and beneficial omega oils. Unlike dairy and soy proteins, most people are not allergic to hemp seeds.
Need an inexpensive way to buy hemp seed protein? I buy mine at iHerb.com
. I like iHerb because all first time customers get $5.00 off their first order. They also have a large variety of products at low prices.
I hope that this helps you out.
