Smoothies are really popular these days, and I highly recommend making protein smoothies as meal replacements if you’re on the go, and for the kids to drink on their way to school in the morning.
Make sure to read all of the ingredients used in the various powdered protein supplements, though. Most are NOT labeled as sugar-free, but many do contain the various artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose, acesulfame K (also known as acesulfame potassium or Ace K).
THESE are the ones to avoid.
You should avoid all the chemical sweeteners, and powered protein using no added sugars or using stevia are the best choices. Orgain® is made from pea protein, but it does have organic erythritol and stevia.
I am not a fan of the sugar alcohols like erythritol, but looking at its complete ingredient list, this is a good choice to avoid the nasty chemical sweeteners, like Ace-K, found in so many protein powders today.
One of the best whey protein powders comes from purebulk.com, and it has no sweeteners in it at all.
You can’t beat that!
After you add your favorite fruits, veggies, or nut butters, you can’t tell that there are no added sweeteners in this protein powder choice.
Don’t forget to always check your labels for nasty and unnecessary chemicals inserted into what’s supposed to be a healthy product!
