Health Benefits of This Cookies and Cream Shake Recipe
Satisfying and Stabilizing
In general, a cookies and cream shake sounds like a recipe for blood sugar disaster. As delicious as these treats can be, an hour or so after you indulge in a creamy beverage like this, you either feel totally drained of energy or you’re craving sugar like a fiend.
And so goes the story of the blood sugar rollercoaster.
But you won’t find any of that drama here. This shake contains 34 grams of satiating fat, and only five net carbs. And since fat is absorbed more slowly than other macronutrients, you’ll not only avoid cravings — you’ll feel fuller longer[*].
Gut Health Support
An ice cream shake to heal your gut? Okay, maybe that’s a little too far, but this shake certainly won’t hurt your gut.
In fact, collagen protein is loaded with the amino acid glycine, which is known for its supportive role in gut health. Specifically, glycine seems to upregulate your guts antioxidant defenses, helping to calm inflammation. Some research even suggests that glycine may be a beneficial treatment for inflammatory bowel disease[*].Print
