    My hubby & I have been experimenting w/ new primal recipies last few weeks. Thought I'd share our latest primal protein shake. It's possibly the most delicious shake we've ever had:


    8 oz raw pasture-fed whole milk (yummy!)

    1 scoop choc protein powder (whatever you use)

    1 tablespoon coconut oil

    1/2 cup frozen berries

    ice


    mix and enjoy the bliss....

    Aww, I don't think peanut butter is so catastrophic! My father gave me the no sugar added, omega-3 enriched "Smart balance" type. I figured that was mildly primal.


    On another note, I used to stuff my blender full of spinach. Can't taste it once it's mixed with your fruit and milk, although my nutrition professor warned me that you can't absorb the vitamins and minerals unless the stuff is cooked. Thoughts?

    Yeah, they'll have a fit over peanut butter but condone pot. Go figure. :P


    I like chocolate whey with berries, and I like chocolate with nut butter... not sure about chocolate, berries AND nut butter. Gonna have to give it a try though. Sounds really rich and decadent.

    Jess:

    i put spinach in my protein shakes all the time. I would be interested in hearing what people think.

    I agree, you can't taste it really much at all.

    For the purist primal types, milk is not primal. Raw or otherwise.


    Not saying you shouldn't do what you want, but it's def not primal. Nor protein powders, for that matter, although Mark doesn't have an issue with whey based ones, I think. Definitely no soy!

    I tried this last weekend:


    1 bar Lindt Excellence 90% Cacao

    1 can (400 mL) coconut milk

    1 tbsp coconut oil


    Well over 100 grams of fat right there, and probably nudging close to 40 g of carbs. I think if you make it with anything less than 90% cacao, it defeats the purpose. I would try it with 99% if I could find any around here. Strangely the 90% Lindt seems to have fewer carbs than 100% baker's chocolate. Anyways, I wonder if it would be best to use unsweetened cocoa powder.

    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!
