Helpful hints

  • Recipe makes about 1/2 gallon. Store remaining beverage in a covered pitcher.
  • EAS whey protein powder used in the nutrition analysis contains 26 grams protein for 2 scoops. If you use a different brand of whey protein adjust the amount to provide approximately 156 grams protein for the recipe. Ask your dietitian about other protein powder options.
  • Substitute strawberry or chocolate whey protein powder for a different flavor beverage.
