I love reviews! Just love them! I am the person scrolling through tons and tons of reviews to see if it’s something I want to purchase. I want to know what people think and how they use a product. I go crazy for information but enough about that, let’s talk protein powder!
A little history:
Before THM came out with their powder I was using Swanson’s whey protein powder and loved it! Whey protein is in so many THM recipes. I don’t know why Swanson changed their recipe but when they did all us THM’s were like… Say What?! It was no longer approved “on plan” by the sisters and we were left without the amazing whey!
The sisters quickly added Pristine Whey Protein Powder to their online store and kapow! we were back in business!
It is delicious! I love, love, love using this stuff so much I must smooch it!
It isn’t just filling, it is smooth and it dissolves easily into recipes plus it smells like cake, I mean, need I say more? If you are a smoothie lover like me, you will find it makes them frothy and light. I also love it in my Greek yogurt because I am weird and I don’t like the dry feeling the yogurt leaves in my mouth. Do you know what I am talking about? Anyway, their protein powder makes it more like a pudding, a decadent, fluffy, filling pudding!
You use this stuff in quite a bit of the THM recipes so having this on hand is a must if you ask me. It also comes with its own scoop so measuring is simple. To make a smoothie generally you use one full scoop but you can half it and still make an excellent smoothie. It was one of the first things I ordered when I started THM and it helped out a lot. Those smoothies are easy to whip up when just starting out.
The one issue I have with the protein powder is in the packaging. The reusable bag does not like to seal shut. It was a simple fix. I just stuck the entire bag into a gallon ziploc bag and seal it that way. It doesn’t bother me at all, just something to be noted.
I love a good recipe just as much as I love a good review so I am going to share with you my favorite chocolate protein smoothie, its a FP meal, that I make with their whey powder. I kind of made it up. I took a few smoothies recipes I liked and combined them into this delicious, easy, frothy, chocolate smoothie! Are ya ready?
Chocolate Protein Smoothie (FP):
Put the following ingredients into a blender:
1 cup Cashew Milk
2 Tbs. Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
4 packets Truvia
1 squirt Skinny Girl Liquid Stevia
1 tsp. Caramel or Vanilla Extract
1 scoop THM Pristine Whey Protein Powder
6 cubes of ice or more depending on how thick you like your smoothies.
Blend until smooth & enjoy!
If you want a peanut-butter chocolate smoothies replace 1 Tbs. of the cocoa powder with 1 Tbs. peanut flour (also available on the THM website I will have listed below).
I use Cashew milk because I think it is creamier than Almond milk but you can use either or.
Greek Yogurt Pudding Recipe (FP):
Would you like that Greek yogurt recipe I was talking about earlier? It’s found on page 251 in the first THM book. It’s actually called Greek Pudding and rightfully so, it turns it into the consistency of pudding. The only thing I add is a cup of strawberries, fresh or frozen (thawed) with a few blueberries keeping it in FP territory. Not many blueberries though, that could quickly turn into an E meal because of their carb count. I also sweeten the berries and yogurt with Stevia or Truvia or both! It all depends on what you like.
