These Dairy-Free Shakes Deliver 12 Grams of Muscle-Building Protein
When your schedule is slammed but you need something to fuel up after a hard workout, whipping up a protein shake sounds like a no-brainer. But in reality, getting out the blender, fetching your ingredients, measuring proportions, and cleanup always take way longer than anticipated. To skip those steps, we're excited about the Rebbl protein shake, which you can take on the go. It's both a nutritional powerhouse and a dairy-free option.
Rebbl, an organic, plant-based drink company with products made from coconut milk, ethically sourced ingredients, and adaptogens, has a protein shake we can't stop sipping on. Their Banana Nut protein shake is spiced up with turmeric and Brazil nuts. This drink is an easy boost of energy in the morning or after hitting the gym, thanks to its hearty 12 g of protein. This is a perfect milkshake alternative for lactose intolerance folks, as it's packed with coconut milk instead of real dairy. It's also loaded with fruits like bananas and dates to sweeten things up.
We asked Jim White, RDN, ACSM EX-P, Owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios, to weigh in on the shake to see if it lives up to the hype. "This drink has a good ratio of carbs to protein for assisting in muscle repair after a workout. The drink is also void of refined sugars, is low in sodium, and is a good source of fiber. While the product is plant-based and would be suitable for those who avoid dairy for health or personal purposes, the coconut milk adds a significant amount of saturated fat." Keep an eye on your saturated fat intake though—a bottle of this protein shake has 40% of the recommended daily value.
There are three other tasty Rebbl protein shake flavors in the collection for your post-gym afternoon pick-up—vanilla spice, dark chocolate, and cold brew. Plus, if you're looking for something totally different, they also have elixirs in a range of wild flavors, like berries and creme, matcha latte, reishi chocolate, and ashwagandha chai.
