Safe Protein Shakes for Acne              

Not all protein shakes are safe for acne.

Not all protein shakes are safe for acne.

Did you know that whey and soy protein powders are major acne triggers. Many protein powders also contain Biotin or sea-based super greens (like spirulina, chlorella, blue-green) which can exacerbate acne prone skin tremendously! And no iodides from salt.
Here is the recipe for my favorite “powder-free” protein shake! And the best part…you can customize it to your needs/liking! Add a banana or almond butter. Change out the cocoa powder for strawberries or even a splash of vanilla extract!

1 cup pasteurized egg whites
4 oz unsweetened almond milk
