The very best whey protein that you can use is Irish grass-fed whey. The best product on the market is AGN Roots Grass-fed Whey Protein Isolate. Why Irish grass-fed whey? AGN Roots believes Ireland produces the best grass-fed dairy including whey protein because it has the best temperature and humidity, consistent and plentiful rain, the cleanest coastal air available anywhere, the best alkaline soil for growing lush, nutrient green pastures (without chemicals), and uses the best grass-fed dairy cattle (Friesian and Jersey crosses). This makes for a much healthier whey product, and we know you care deeply about the quality of supplements that put into your body!

The easiest way to ingest the whey protein powder is by adding it to your food or drink. Most often, people add the powder to smoothies and shakes. If you are careful and choose the ingredients wisely you can get an extra boost of protein, or of energy, or even make a special recovery drink! To make things easy, we will share a few whey protein smoothie recipes with you!
A good protein smoothie has three or four basic ingredients. The first ingredient is your base. You start with either one cup of ice or one cup of frozen. If you are watching calories, ice is the better choice, but frozen fruit has a lot of nutrients to be considered as well! The second ingredient is your protein powder (use the amount determined by the protein calculator mentioned earlier). For an extra protein punch, you can also add things like chia or flax seed or a tablespoon of nut butter. The third ingredient is the optional one: sweetener. If you used fruit, you may not want or need to add any additional sweetener, but if you do, try an all-natural sweetener such as maple syrup or honey. The last ingredient is your liquid, and you add about ⅓ cup to ½ cup, depending on your preferred thickness. You can use water, juice, or your choice of a variety of milk. Put everything together in the blend and in about one minute you will have your own personalized smoothie!
The most important thing to remember when making your protein smoothie is that it is just for you! Add the flavors that you will like and that will make you feel good.
