Here’s a truth…it’s really hard for me to take the time to make a healthy meal for myself every day. And typically it only happens once a day. The rest of my “meals” are quick and simple. Ain’t nobody got time for ‘dat. I’m so sorry… ok, ok.. This Berry Compote & Goat Milk Protein Shake is full of nutrition. It has yummy bananas, coconut milk, and my choice protein powder. I love the goat milk flavor of my protein powder along with this simple, sweet and tangy compote.
I’m always searching for ways to keep my nutrition in check. Having the numerous sensitivities that I have, it was nearly impossible to find a protein powder. Until Caprotein!!! Now, what is caprotein, you might ask.. It’s protein powder made from goats milk put out by the company, Mt. Capra. They set extremely high standards for the care of their goats as well as the processing of their milk. They actually, somewhat, double process this particular product. Mt. Capra calls it lacto-fermintation. This process partially predigests the milk for us, which is wonderful!! I am technically sensitive to goat milk, but because this stuff has done some of the work for me, I can handle it. High five on that one!! And that’s not it guys!! This product is also great for your digestive system. I have put it in shakes, baked goods, savory dishes…the list goes on. If you can’t have soy, dairy, eggs, yeast, seafood, or gluten, then this is the protein powder for you.
You’ll want to start making the compote first. It should be ready by the time the shake is ready. If you want to make a batch ahead of time, you can. I actually like the warm compote with the cold goat milk shake.
- 1 c berries of choice
- ¼ c water
- 1 T honey
- Add the water and berries to a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
- Once it begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 6 minutes.
- The berries should be breaking down by this point and most of the water should have evaporated.
- You can use an emulsion blender or regular blender (I used my Ninja) to blend the berry mixture. You want it broken down, but not completely smooth.
- You will add the honey at the very end of the mixing process.
- If you have any left, you can store it in a container in the refrigerator for about a week.
- 2 frozen bananas (if using fresh bananas, you will need to add 1-2 c of ice and extra flavors to taste)
- 2 T Caprotein (or choice protein powder)
- ½ c coconut milk (or milk of choice)
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 10 [url href="http://Sweetleaf Stevia Stevia Liquid Extra count Clear 4 oz - Pack of 1"]stevia sweet drops[/url] ( or 1-3 T of sweeter of choice)
- dash of salt
- Place everything in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
- Once the compote is ready, you can layer the flavors of the shake and the compote.
