09/05/2013 - Juicing and BiPro Whey Protein Isolate

Juicing and Whey Protein


Nothing tastes better than a fresh glass of juice. Nothing is more satisfying than making your own and knowing exactly what it contains. Plus it’s a quick and easy way to get the great nutrients of fruits and vegetables.

As much as I love juicing, I found that I would get hungry after a short time, so I started adding a scoop of BiPro to my juice to help fill me up and provide some protein that’s lacking in the juice alone.

Juicing also helps me sneak the goodness of vegetables into my teens without them knowing. Even though they are older and know veggies are good for them, they still don’t like to eat them. Putting broccoli, beets or spinach into a glass of juice with their favorite fruits helps them get the vitamins they need without having to “suffer” through eating the vegetable on its own.

Directions:


1. Juice fruits and vegetables according to manufaturer’s directions.
2. Pour juice into a shaker cup.
3. Add BiPro and shake well.
4. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
5. Each recipe makes 1 serving.

 

Note: If you are new to juicing, feel free to substitute different fruits or vegetables in the recipes. Be creative and try your own combinations. Try adding a dash of cinnamon with the BiPro whey protein isolate for some added flavor (try Chocolate and French Vanilla flavored BiPro).

 

And what to do with all the pulp left in your juicer?

  • Add vegetable pulp to soups, casseroles or pasta sauce
  • Add up to ½ cup vegetable pulp to meatloaf or burgers
  • Add to salsa
  • Add to cream cheese for bagel spread
  • Add to muffins or quick breads
  • Add to smoothies
  • Use fruit pulp to make “crisp” type desserts
  • Stir fruit pulp into yogurt or use to make frozen yogurt or ice cream
