Casein Protein Shakes

Everyone loves milk shakes and whey protein shakes and there is just one more addition to this milk shake variety: Casein protein shake comes to the fore which has more body and is naturally more delicious than its counterpart, the whey.

By the way, both whey and casein form part of milk and separated out when the liquid is coagulated. Whey separates out as liquid whereas Casein is the solid part. Casein is the white component you see in milk and tastes the creamiest.

Though Casein and Whey are both varieties of protein, the former digests very slowly and feeds nutrition to your body for a very long time. Using this quality the shakes that we have brought for you, are not only delicious and tasty, they keep your body nourished even when we have called it a day and retired to the bed.

  4. ¼ cup raw cashews (soaked overnight)
  5. ¼ cup almonds soaked overnight and skinned

Micellar casein is the slowest digesting among all varieties and hence it is preferred for bedtime. However, when you also add whey protein, the instant nutrition part is served beautifully and then the micellar casein jumps for sustained protein release.

Conclusion
Sipped an hour before bedtime, casein works as beautifully as it also aids you to get a sound sleep and then it works in the background feeding your tired muscles.
