These tasty sweets also provide protein, good fats and heart-healthy ginger! If you can’t find cashew butter, feel free to substitute peanut or almond butter.
When shopping for a whey protein powder, look for one made from high-quality milk (no growth hormones and preferably grass-fed and/or organically raised). Also check that it is processed using low-heat methods, and not hydrolyzed (boiled in hydrochloric acid to break down). Read the ingredients, which should be recognizable and few. Our favorites are from Source Naturals: True Whey and Whey to Health, but there are other good brands you might be able to locate more easily. Take a look at the ingredients in Source Naturals whey protein products, and use them to compare with others.
Be sure to use unsweetened natural coconut, not the moist type with added sugars and preservatives. The individual ingredients are not cheap, but a little goes a long way.
