High Protein Berry Shake

lee_eem says:


So which whey protein did you guys use? Or recommend? Dietitian comment: There are many acceptable whey protein powders available, so there is no single brand to recommend. Compare the labels and select the one lowest in potassium, phosphorus and sodium. Protein content varies with the scoop size[INVALID]10 to 25 grams/serving.

This sounds very tasty. Iam looking for a variety of drinks to use for breakfasts but don't want to use egg product, would rather keep eggs for another meal - what can I susbstitute for the egg? Moderator comment: You can omit the egg product and increase the whey protein powder. Add 1 additional tablespoon.
