Early Morning Protein Jolt

shake 2

I never thought I would post a recipe like this. Actually if you had told me a few months ago that I would have grass fed gelatin as a part of my diet I would have laughed in your face. I actually used to not eat much meat at all. Now I eat more meat than I have in my entire life. It has actually been the best change I have ever made physically. I also have cut out of the things that caused me to feel so sick which has made a huge difference.  I know everyone is different but this has personally been what my body has needed.

I am often in a hurry during the course of a work week. I find myself often throwing together a protein shake to get me through to my next meal. I have never really enjoyed protein shakes. 1. They taste terrible. 2. I never trust the quality of ingredients. 3. They cost an arm and a leg.

So I decided to purchase a pure form of protein and basically make my own. I am SO glad I did! My stomach never feels bad after using the gelatin and it keeps me full for a very long time. I also know that it is helping to heal my gut so I can live a healthier life.

  1. Thanks! Its pretty unique but I like it! I know Great Lakes makes one for “cold” drinks so it will dissolve and not thicken. Might see how I like that next. But I’ve read that the red one has more amino acids and proteins so I think its worth the thickness. 🙂

  6. Just found this recipe on Pinterest, and was super excited. My gelatin just arrived this morning, and I am already drinking your amazing drink. It is soooo good, and I am looking forward to drinking one a couple of times a week!!!

  7. Yay!! So glad you love it! Gelatin is one of my favorite things to add to smoothies! 🙂

  8. Hi… I just found this recipe and I had a few questions. I’m looking for a complete paleo protein shake after my workouts (usually a 4-5 hour trail run or a 100 km bike ride). Do you have the nutritional values. Calories, protein, etc…
