PROTEIN SHAKES: Who’s Behind the Straw
There are a lot of people that take supplements, but it seems most people think of bodybuilders and athletes first when they think of drinking protein shakes – and there’s no one who knows protein better than Designer Whey.
As the #1 protein brand since 1993, they were around during the peek of spandex and body building, and they are thriving here and now – and fitness looks a lot different than it did 20 years ago. With the informative world wide web, people are more educated than ever and more aware of their need for protein in their diet. With this knowledge, protein has become a part of many people’s lives – and if I have to guess, most of them aren’t bodybuilders.
Of matter of fact, I’d guess they are moms, dads, runners, surfers, cyclists, health nuts, fitness newbies, experienced athletes, youth, seniors and basically every body type, age and race. My guess is there is no one Designer “way”. All of us Designer Whey fans (follow them on Facebook) use Designer Whey OUR way – and are loving it!
As a protein supplement enthusiast myself, I’m constantly looking for fresh new recipe ideas, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Designer Whey’s shake recipe page! YAYYYYY!!! Ingenious! Whether you use Designer Whey or another brand, you can start mixing it up like a pro with some of their creative yummy ideas. And, if I had to guess, I bet many of you have some great ideas too!!
In search for more great ideas, I asked what flavors and recipes my facebook friends liked and how they mix it up at home. Below are just a few of the first posts. Join the protein party and help us shake things up by sharing your recipe or favorite protein shake fix mix below! I’ll be doing a follow up blog to showcase YOUR recipes, blogs, web pages and/or personal profiles!

I usually add 1/2 cup blueberries and sometimes a few pecans, but you can get really creative with your add-ins. Bake it in a preheated 350° oven for 25 minutes and presto! So good I sometimes have it twice a day!
