Vanilla Whey for Smoothies
Reviewed By:
4 out of 5 Rating: 4 Star Rating

The Optimum Nutrition brand of vanilla whey is great for adding to a morning smoothie. We recommend the vanilla, although it comes in many other flavors. The vanilla is ideal for adding in a blender with skim milk and some frozen fruit. It is recommended that the 1 scoop you add to the blender be added right when you are ready to blend the smoothie. If you leave it too long while you are putting things away, the vanilla whey will cling to the top edge of the liquid mark in the blender.

The whey helps make the smoothie thicker,
much like the Panera Bread peach smoothies.

The frozen fruit will help thicken the drink as well. The whey blends very well with skim milk. There is no grit, and no aftertaste – it is almost like the flavor of a fast food vanilla shake, only better for you!
