How Do I Drink Gold Standard Whey Protein?

Whey protein can help you lose weight, build muscle and recover after exercise, according to the National Dairy Council. Optimum Nutrition's 100 Percent Whey Gold Standard powder contains mostly whey protein isolates, a pure form of whey protein in which almost all of the lactose has been removed. Enjoy whey protein powder as a supplement to protein-rich foods.

Got a Blender?

Fill your blender with 6 to 8 ounces of water or other liquid, add 1 scoop of Gold Standard Whey Protein and blend for up to 30 seconds. Add a couple of ice cubes and blend for another 30 seconds. Get creative by throwing in additional ingredients, such as fresh or frozen fruit, flaxseed oil or peanut butter.

No Blender? No Problem

Place a scoop of the powder and 6 to 8 ounces of liquid in a shaker cup or large glass. Shake or stir with a spoon for 30 seconds or until dissolved. Use less or more liquid to adjust the consistency and sweetness of your shake.
