Whey protein extends green tea’s health effects
“Casein, a kind of milk protein, was believed to negate Catechins’ antioxidant activities. After many studies on this subject, scientists found that Catechins are just released more slowly when consumed with milk protein and it actually extends the effects of the green tea antioxidant activities. As a result, the effect of catechins lasted from 4 to 8 hrs after the green tea was consumed with milk proteins, while the effect lasted only 4 hrs after green tea alone was consumed.” Click here to read the whole article about green tea and whey protein to enhance metabolism, “Green Tea and Whey for post exercise drink.” FREE GIFT FOR OUR GREAT CUSTOMERS!!Get our free gift of Whey protein powder (Swanson unsweetened vanilla protein powder* as shown in the following recipe: “Mama’s Little Secret Energy Drink”) by ordering $98** or more online.

Easy & Delicious! Afternoon PICK ME UP – “Mama’s Little Secret Energy Drink”
When a “mama blogger” posted her “Energy Drink” on her blog, MATCHA orders flooded into our website! Her secret energy drink brought her calm, long lasting energy when she needed it. And guess what–her recipe uses green tea powder and whey protein powder. See her recipe below.
“Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk*
1/4 tsp. Matcha powder (I heap mine)
1/2 Scoop Swanson Unsweetened Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
a dash of pure salt
pure white Stevia (to taste)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend for a couple of seconds. I then add a couple of ice cubes**, just enough to cool the drink to perfection.
Now drink and feel the difference!”
*We tried this recipe with various milks and it worked with any of them–so go ahead and whip it with your favorite milk!
**We used frozen banana for ‘ice cubes’ to add natural sweetness!
Her name is Kristy Quinn, and she is a loving mom of 5 girls, wife, singer, and author. And this is what she says about this drink:
“Within an hour of drinking it I have energy and lots of it. Not the kind of jittery energy that caffeinated coffee can give. I’m actually so sensitive to caffeine in coffee that I don’t drink it unless it’s decaffeinated.
Mama’s Little Secret Energy Drink not only gives me energy for hours, but it (bizarrely enough) provides a sense of calm when I need it most. It is the oddest thing I tell you! It has a light creamy vanilla flavor with just a hint of green tea flavor. It’s unbelievably yummy and so good for you!!”
