A year ago, when I decided to lower my blood glucose, I bought some whey protein hoping to enjoy some smoothies for b'fast, but made one and discovered that it made my mouth and throat itch and swell. By coincidence a few weeks ago, I had some allergy tests and it turns out I'm highly allergic to whey, so I was glad I'd given mine to a friend who is also doing Atkins.

Then the search for another way to go led me to egg white protein and yesterday and today I've had smoothies for b'fast. Yesterday I made it by using my immersion blender with chocolate powder, egg protein, a touch of Truvia and whole cream! Yummy!

Today, I sliced up 6 large strawberries, cream and the egg protein and had a fantastic smoothie. 1 hr. PP was 105, so it barely budged, but wow what a treat it was. Now, I'll end up allergic to eggs I guess, but in the meantime I'll get more treats.

Any other ideas? I'd love them if you can contribute to my education!:)

Splenda flavored syrups rock -- Torani, DaVinci brands are good. They add another flavor dimension to your fruit or whatever.

good job pat for finding something that works...I like it when it works and is also delish :)

I used to buy whey protein isolate and it was sooooooo expensive but the other day I bought whey concentrate...half the price and not flavoured...
