Antioxidant Strawberry Protein

Strawberries rank 5th on America's list of favorite fruits, and consumption has doubled over the last decade. They're available year-round and are rich in antioxidant compounds including the anthocyanins responsible for the berry's blue, purple and red pigments. Scientists from the Agricultural Research Service recently discovered that the more strawberries you eat, the more anthocyanin pigments your body uses.

The Bigger Picture: Let's take this apparently limitless healthy potential a step further by blending fresh strawberries into a 100% Whey Gold Standard shake. Delicious Strawberry would be a very complementary flavor selection, as would any of the chocolates or vanillas. Pour 8 to 10 ounces of cold water into the blender, add a scoop of whey along with a half cup or so of sliced strawberries, cover and blend until smooth. Then toss in a couple of ice cubes and blend for another 10 to 20 seconds. The added fast carbs make this tasty treat particularly effective for post-workout recovery.
