Dalgona Coffee with Chocolate Paleo Protein May 13, 2020 17:45 20 Comments

Dalgona Coffee made with Delicious Chocolate Complete Paleo Protein!

We noticed that a lot of folks are trying their hand at a whipped sweet-tasting milky coffee treat that is trending known as Dalgona Coffee

Dalgona, or Ppopgi in Korean, means “honeycomb toffee” or "old fashioned sugar candy". It's a treat you can easily make yourself and it tastes delicious! Dalgona coffee is a beverage made by whipping equal proportions of instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water until it becomes creamy and then adding it to cold or hot milk.

We had a lot of fun experimenting in the RawWheyProtein.com kitchen. We put a healthier spin on our version of Dalgona coffee by substituting xylitol (a low glycemic sweetener) instead of sugar and using coconut cream instead of milk. We kicked our recipe up a few notches by adding chocolate Complete Paleo Protein for a burst of mocha flavor and high quality beef-based protein!

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons of your favorite Instant Coffee, we used Nescafé

1 Tablespoon of Xylitol for added sweetness if you choose you can add more or less to your taste preferences

4 Tablespoons of hot water

2 Tablespoons of Complete Paleo Protein in the Delicious Chocolate Flavor

1 can of Organic Coconut Cream, we used Trader Joe's brand

Instructions:

Whip the instant coffee, xylitol, water and Paleo Protein powder with a whisk or use a hand blender until soft peaks are formed.

Pour over iced or warm coconut cream.

We tried several versions of Dalgona coffee with other ingredients such as our Vegan Creamy Vanilla Complete Pea Protein with a Matcha version for those of you who don't like coffee or chocolate and it was a delightful snack.

Try a Coconut Matcha Vegan Dalgona Treat made with Complete Pea Protein!

To make the Vanilla Matcha version:

Mix one Tablespoon of Matcha powder with 4 Tablespoons of hot water.

In a separate mug, mix 1 Tablespoon of Creamy Vanilla Complete Pea Protein

with coconut cream. 

Pour the steeped and thoroughly whisked Matcha and hot water mix over the Pea Protein and coconut cream mix. Add xylitol for sweetness to your taste preference.

These 2 delicious drinks make great snacks or breakfasts. The added Protein helps satiate your appetite so that your blood sugar stays even until lunch or your next meal.

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake January 7, 2020 13:47 8 Comments

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake made with Raw Whey Protein!

How is the New Year treating everyone? We hope everyone is staying healthy this winter. To build immunity against the winter colds circulating, we mixed up a healthy dessert full of Vitamin C made with Complete Whey Protein and fresh lemons!

For Crust Blend these 2 ingredients:

1 cup (approximately 10) pitted Medjool dates

1 cup pecans (or your favorite raw nut such as walnuts, cashews, almonds)

Press gooey mixture flat into glass container. Sprinkle with Himalayan sea salt.

For filling, whip together:

Zest and juice of 5 lemons

1/2 cup of xylitol (low glycemic sweetener)

1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup

4 scoops of Unflavored Complete Whey Protein powder

Why is protein so important to our health?

The single most important antioxidant in the body is called glutathione and it is made directly from protein. 

Restrict your protein and you risk excessive aging due to low antioxidant production. And here is an important fact- you can’t replace glutathione with other antioxidants like vitamin C. Glutathione has a specific role in protecting your body and only it can perform that protective role. 

Your immune system helps fight infections and to do this it uses specific types of immune-boosting proteins. Consuming high-quality protein can be a nice boost to your immune system. Without it, your immune system would shut down and you would likely become ill from bacterial or viral infections.

Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie September 5, 2019 14:59 46 Comments

Fresh end of summer pears blended with our high quality protein powders from RawWheyProtein.com!

We love making our smoothies with fresh fruits that are available each season. End of summer means fresh pears are ready to pick off the trees and are added directly into a delicious smoothie full of antioxidants, electrolytes and fiber.

Pears are a low-glycemic fruit that won't spike your blood sugar. They are full of electrolytes like copper and magnesium. Pears are also a great source of Vitamin C and Potassium!

To make our delicious Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie blend these ingredients together:

3 ripe pears with seeds and stem removed

1 scoop of Creamy Vanilla Complete Whey Protein Powder

Dash of Ceylon Cinnamon

Dash of Himalayan Sea Salt

2 fresh or frozen apricots with pits removed (sub peaches if desired)

1 fresh or frozen banana

1 teaspoon of Freshly grated Ginger root

add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract if desired

sprinkle Cinnamon and extra grated ginger on top after blending

for a Vegan smoothie sub Complete Pea Protein

for a Paleo smoothie sub Complete Paleo Protein

Pears are a great fruit that aids in weight loss. In addition to containing antioxidants like Vitamin C, pears are high in fiber, low in calories, high in water content and aid in digestion. 

Not only are pears delicious in smoothies, they are a great addition to salads.

We suggest one Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie in the morning blended with any of our Complete Protein Powders. For dinner: mix fresh arugula, spinach, grilled chicken, fresh pears, feta cheese and pecans. For dressing: blend olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh pears. Finish with salt and pepper. Yum!
