Try this great Protein Booster mix for a meal, snack, or dessert!
Hi! I’m Dr. Tina Marcantel and today I want to talk to you about a delicious protein booster.
These are our ingredients. It’s very simple: you just measure out, you mix it together, and you enjoy it.
Right here we have yogurt, and I have chosen Fage yogurt because it’s very creamy and it’s delicious. I measure out 8 ounces of the yogurt.
Then we have the peanut powder. I use the Jif, you can use other peanut powders, but the reason I like the Jif is because it only has 1 sugar per serving. I use 2 tablespoons of this peanut powder.
I also use about 6 ounces of fruit. I’m going to put apples because I like the crunchy texture in my yogurt, and I’m going to put pineapple, because pineapple has a lot of vitamin C, it has bromelain, which is a very good anti-inflammatory, and it’s very sweet, it’s a natural sweetener.
We also have stevia here to put a few drops of stevia in there if you want to. Now, if your fruit is sweet enough like I choose today pineapple, which is very sweet this time of year, I won’t need much stevia at all.
The other thing that we’re going to add in here is one tablespoon of MCT oil. And I love this stuff. This stuff is wonderful; it’s a brain and body fuel. Our brain is made mostly of fatty tissue and it needs good oils and this is a really good oil for our body and our brain.
So let’s mix this together! Like I said, that yogurt is delicious and it’s very, very creamy. Sometimes what I like to do is take a little bit of the extra pineapple juice that is with the pineapple and I like to add it to here. It makes it even creamier. And of course it adds to the sweetness.
Measure, mix, and enjoy! That’s delicious.
You can use this as a breakfast meal, you can use it as a snack, and sometimes I even use it as a dessert. Enjoy!
