Make your protein shakes creamier and more nutritious with this very unexpected ingredient.
Seriously, this is the best thing ever. Not only will your protein shakes be creamier (and more milkshake-like) but they will now be packed with nutrients.
Ready for it?!
The unexpected ingredient: squash
You can't taste it. Promise.
The credit for this one goes to our neighbor (Heyyyyy Dani!), she's the one who told us about this trick. It took us a few months to try it out but we've been adding them to our protein shakes ever since.
So, what do we mean by adding squash and zucchini to your protein shake?
- Chop up organic squash and zucchini into little cubes
- Add them to a freezer gallon size Ziploc bag and put it in the freezer
- When it's time to make a protein shake, add the ingredients like normal (using one of our protein shake recipes) and save a little room for frozen veggies
- Add the frozen veggies and blend completely
We have/use two different blenders. We've made protein shakes like this using a Vitamix and also with a Ninja Fit. If you are using a blender smaller than a Vitamix, be sure to not overfill the cup you use. Also, be sure to blend long enough so that the squash and zucchini are completely chopped up.
Let us know when you try this trick and what you think about it!
