The benefits of incorporating protein shakes into your dietary routine, especially in a post-op scenario, are countless. However, the taste of some protein powders can be a major roadblock for many. But, it doesn't have to be that way! In this blog, we will share some creative tips and delightful recipes that will help your protein shakes go down a little easier.

Use High-Quality Protein Powder

Your protein shake's flavor is, in many ways, determined by the type of protein powder you use. When it comes to quality protein powder that doesn't compromise on taste, Bariatric Eating's Inspire protein line is a top choice.

The Inspire line uses whey protein isolate which is much cleaner than the commonly used whey concentrate, guaranteeing you won't get any odd aftertaste. Additionally, it is easier to digest, particularly valuable for those healing after a bariatric surgery.

The best part? The Inspire proteins are naturally flavored, allowing the authentic taste of the ingredients to shine through. Whether you're a fan of Pumpkin' Pie Protein or feel adventurous to try out new flavors, the options are endless to find something that aligns with your palate.

Use Natural Sweeteners

If your protein shake needs a little sweetness kick, try adding natural sweeteners. Swap artificial sources with natural options such as honey, agave, or stevia. Remember, moderation is key here, too much could lead to a sugar overload.

Add Fruits

Adding fruits to your protein shake is a healthy and delicious way to enhance its flavor. Frozen fruits also add a lovely consistency to the shake. Try bananas, berries, mangoes, or peaches for a refreshing twist. Our protein flavors like Dutch Chocolate Cake Protein Powder or Strawberry White Chocolate Protein Powder pairs incredibly well with a wide range of fruits.

Experiment with Dairy and Dairy Alternatives

Try using almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk instead of regular milk for a different flavor profile.

Add Greek Yogurt

Add a spoonful of Greek yogurt to your protein shake for creaminess and a boost of protein and probiotics.
