If your mornings are rushed, make this the night before. Just get it out of the freezer 30 minutes or so before serving so it will have time to thaw a bit.
When shopping for a protein powder, try to find a blended protein source. Proteins come in two forms – blended and whey. The body metabolizes blended proteins more efficiently – it burns them more slowly and doesn’t cause blood-sugar levels to spike. If you can’t find protein powder, it’s OK to omit from the recipe.
