To follow on from our first Grease-themed recipe (delightfully pink Beauty School Drop Scones) we have for you – Whey Go Together! It is inspired by the song We Go Together which is sung both at the end of Act I and Act II. Other than the fairground scene in the movie version, the song is probably most famous for the crazy lyrics. Anyone who has performed in a production of this show will recall how long it took to learn them!
Rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong
Shoobop sha wadda wadda yippity boom de boom
Chang chang changitty chang shoobop
Dip da dip da dip doowop da doobee doo
Boogedy boogedy boogedy boogedy shooby doowop shebop
Sha na na na na na na na yippity dip de doom
So here is a great smoothie recipe that is actually very healthy – and is perfect if you need to detox! It works as a replacement for a light meal as it’s more filling than it looks, or can be enjoyed as a snack between meals. The main ingredient is whey protein, which is actually made from a by-product of cheese production. It’s commonly sold as a dietary supplement, and is often drunk after exercise to boost muscle hypertrophy for strength training.
Don’t worry, we’re not going to get all super healthy on you over here at Cabernet. But we DID think that this recipe might be appreciated by anyone who has over-indulged during the holidays!
Add vanilla whey protein powder, fresh blueberries, milk (I use unsweetened almond milk but regular milk is fine too), sugar or sweetener, and flaxseed meal to a blender. Actually the flaxseed is optional so don’t rush out and buy it especially for this recipe – but it does add a pleasant nutty taste to the drink – and extra protein too.
That’s the way it should be
Blend everything together until smooth. You could drink it right now but if you prefer a smoother smoothie (as I do) then strain it through a sieve first to remove the bits of blueberry skin.
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 8 fl oz (1 cup) milk
- 1 tbs sugar or sweetener
- 1 tbs flaxseed meal (optional)
- Place all the ingredients into a blender. Blend everything together until smooth.
- If desired, strain the mixture through a sieve before drinking.
