Our power-packed, Low-Carb Choco-Cherry Shake is the perfect menu item for this, or whatever lifestyle that demands it.
Low-carb food items are usually high-fat, high-protein. What are some of the benefits this offers?

A great muscle recovery/protein shake!

Starting with whey protein- the muscle booster, and soy milk, this a great meal replacement shake, or even a snack, that keeps your stomach full for a while.

Coupled with the high protein content in soy milk, your muscles will be thanking you while it’s growing, rebuilding and repairing. Protein also tells your body to ‘get back up,’ when recovering from an illness.

From this purpose to post workout shake, the whey protein, soy protein and cherries, are great for helping with post workout recovery.

It plays a major role in digestion

While protein takes a while to digest, fiber (found in cherries) stores and does not break down. While passing through the body, it mops up some cholesterol on the way, a settle in the intestines, waiting until you’re ready to help you pass some stool.

Like icing to a cake, milk is an essential ingredient in a shake. Using soy milk guarantees that the low-carb consistency is maintained.

Unlike whole milk, it is rich in iron (friend of your red blood cells) and vitamin K2 to help with blood clotting and to help breaking down calcium.

How about a treat for your immune system?

Oozing from the cherries is a rich source of vitamin C which will help to defend the body against harmful substances and leave you with having a glowing healthy skin. Who doesn’t want to stay healthier?
