How to make JuiceLand’s Protein-Packed & Sustainable Smoothie: The Chocolate Whey

When our go-to, everyday choices are made in entirely new ways, we can completely reimagine the possibilities of our future. Together, with beloved Texas smoothie shop JuiceLand, we created The Chocolate Whey, a delicious and nutritious smoothie made with our sustainable whey protein and blended with banana, vanilla, cacao and homemade almond milk. Created to meet both our bodies’ and our planet’s needs, The Chocolate Whey is lactose-free, planet-friendly and a great way to get quality protein. 

Why is Protein important? 

Protein is one of the three major nutrients along with carbohydrates and fat, that your body needs to stay healthy. Protein is made up of amino acids, which are the main components of everything from muscles and tissue to bone, skin, and hair. Protein is a major component in the processes that give us energy and carry oxygen throughout our bodies. It even helps make antibodies that fight off infections and illnesses.  

It is important for everyone, especially those who work out or have active lifestyles, to consume adequate amounts of protein. Protein fuels all your day-to-day activities and having protein after a workout will help to repair muscles and replenish your body with essential amino acids.  

Smoothies are especially easy, convenient and tasty ways to get your protein in. Whether it’s for breakfast, after your work out or a midday pick me up, a protein-packed smoothie like The Chocolate Whey is the perfect boost.  

What are the benefits of Animal-Free Whey Protein? 

Completely lactose-free dairy. Perfect Day animal-free whey protein is naturally lactose-free because it is created with milk protein but not milk sugar, those who are lactose intolerant can enjoy the best of dairy without the discomfort.

A great source of high-quality protein. Most plant-based protein alternatives lack substantial protein. Because products made with Perfect Day are redesigned using milk-identical whey protein, we can offer nutrition in every sip and every bite.

Nutrition your body can use. Perfect Day whey is an extremely high quality protein. That means that products made with Perfect Day provide the essential amino acids your body needs and delivers them in a way that your body can absorb.

No antibiotics, no hormones. Just dairy. Because our whey protein is animal-free, it’s untouched by additives. Our protein is created in a clean environment and makes a simple, pure milk product. In fact, it has received Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status.

A carbon footprint that steps in the right direction. Making our whey protein produces up to 97% less carbon emissions than traditional whey protein production, so every product made with Perfect Day leaves a significantly smaller carbon footprint than its traditional counterpart.

Keeping water where it belongs. Producing Perfect Day whey protein uses up to 99% less blue water than traditional whey. Conserving blue water – water that has been sourced from surface or groundwater resources like freshwater lakes, rivers, and aquifers – is something that even plant-based protein alternatives have struggled to solve.

All whey, no cow. No animal involvement also means no need for antibiotics or hormones or other interventions. We’re creating a more stable, resilient food system that can feed more people for generations to come.
