Protein Packed Whey Lemonade!

If you’re looking for a refreshing drink that also packs a protein kick then why not try whey lemonade, sometimes called ‘wheymonade’.

Most recipes you’ll find on the Internet suggest you use the whey left over from the cheese-making process. However, if you don’t live on a farm, aren’t the type to strain your whey from yoghurt or you prefer store-bought mozzarella, there are a few unflavoured commercial whey products available.

Ingredients

  • 12 lemons
  • 2 tbsp natural non-irradiated honey
  • 1 cup of unflavoured whey
  • 2.5 litres of filtered water

Instructions

  • Juice the lemons.
  • Pour the lemon juice and the water into a large container.
  • Pour the honey in.
  • Add the whey.
  • Stir to combine the ingredients.
  • Add some ice and it’s ready to drink!

Bonus: If you are able to produce your own whey from cheese-making or the whey strained from yoghurt or kefir – a fermented milk drink made with kefir “grains” – you’ll also get a great natural probiotic boost. You’ll need to let the mixture stand for two days before drinking if you use the non-processed whey.

Tip: If you can’t find unflavoured whey look for a citrus-flavoured product.
