What are your favorite Designer Protein product(s)?
Designer Whey, unflavored (can use it in so many different sweet and savory recipes!)

Why do you choose Designer Protein?
Packed with 20 grams of protein and nutrients such as calcium, B-vitamins, magnesium, and zinc, Designer Protein is a great way to take your nutrition up a notch. They also steer clear of artificial ingredients and focus on products that are healthy, delicious, and focus on supporting individuals. I love that there is such a broad range of products that can be used in a variety of ways. 

Do you have a favorite go-to Designer Protein recipe?
I use Designer Protein in a range of ways, but my favorite is a "cream cheese smoothie." I add almond milk, some cream cheese, frozen berries, a touch of vanilla extract, and a scoop of Designer Protein (any flavor works) to a blender and I've got an amazing snack or pre/post-workout drink.
