'Whole food' protein drink?

Postby Herbsman » Sun Mar 25, 2012 5:50 am

How can I make a protein drink without protein powder? I was thinking of making a smoothie with silken tofu but this could prove to be expensive. I'm allergic to nuts so peanut butter's not an option. Not sure what else I could use... any ideas?

Miso and brewer's yeast? A bit high in sodium perhaps (that probably depends greatly on context of your goals, exercise and other dietary choices), but great as far as some other important nutrients like B vitamins.

Too much brewer's yeast it's very unlikely you will like the taste, but you may very well find that a little bit ups the protein content, adds other nutrients, and actually improves the taste compared to just miso.

Why not use protein powder?
Would chocolate soya milk count as a whole food?

You can use soya flour instead of soya isolate.

It's actually quite tasty and is 50% protein.

Does custard count as a whole food, I ate a 500ml pack yesterday with a spoon, seemed pretty whole to me :twisted:

As long as it's cold yes, heating it would destroy the enzymes & give you cancer.

I think I read it on VBB so it must be true.

Can't have been VBB. They don't eat custard there, do they?

Food that has been mixed, or even cut, is not whole, don't forget that.

I don't put that much protein in my recovery shake, it wouldn't be hard to get the same amount without using the powder (pea iso in my case)

How much protein do you need? :wink: :wink:
