New Paleo Protein Two Ways

By Jackie Cartier

We’re thrilled to welcome a brand new paleo protein to our shelves made by our friends over at Nutri-Dyn. The new product, Dynamic Paleo Protein, comes in two bold flavors of vanilla and chocolate. Even your toughest critics (little kids!) will like it.

Why’d we make the switch to a new brand and product? Two words, taste and dissolvability. Not only does it taste like vanilla (with a hint of butterscotch!) or chocolate, but also it dissolves easily in a glass of water or coconut milk. We can’t stand protein powder that globs up into a ball and doesn’t mix well! You won’t find that with the new Dynamic Paleo Protein.  

One other reason we keep a paleo protein in stock? Dairy allergies! Often those with a dairy sensitivity can’t tolerate a whey protein, and paleo is a great alternative that won’t upset stomachs. Plus it has all the active amino acids in it, just like a serving of steak.

Delicious for all ages

We often hear from parents trying to get their picky eaters to consume nutritious food to help their growing brains and bodies. For all of you who can relate, you’re going to love this “chocolate milk” recipe Dar created for little kids and grownups alike! Chocolate milk not your idea of a tasty drink? Scroll down for a more adult breakfast utilizing the new paleo protein.

Chocolate “milk”

We frequently see clients who have children who aren’t feeling well due to an unknown dairy sensitivity. They’re excited to start feeling better, but once they realize that means no more chocolate milk we see some sad faces. That is until now! This new recipe is sure to win over even the biggest chocolate milk fans.

  • Blend 1 cup water, one scoop (22 grams of protein) chocolate Dynamic Paleo Protein, 2 tablespoons heavy cream and chipped ice.
  • For more energy, add 1-2 teaspoons MCT Oil.

Nutrition breakdown: 22 grams protein, 12 grams fat, no carbs.

A glass of this sugar-free “milk” would make a great complement to breakfast, especially if your little one (or you) won’t touch other protein sources. Add one hard-boiled egg, a large sliced apple or a slice of 100% whole rye toast with 2 teaspoons of peanut butter or almond butter and you’ve got a balanced meal.  

We've found that most people with a dairy intolerance aren't bothered by heavy cream. The higher the fat content the lower the lactose. 

Ricotta breakfast on the run

Gluten free, but not dairy free.

  • In a bowl, add ½ cup ricotta cheese, 2 tablespoons heavy cream, ½ scoop of vanilla Dynamic Paleo Protein (11 grams of protein), and ¼ teaspoon vanilla.
  • Add either 1 cup blueberries or ¾ cup organic, sugar-free applesauce and ¼ cup chopped walnuts in place of the cream. If desired, add 1 teaspoon chia seeds for extra fiber.
  • Mix and chill.  Eat immediately or the next morning for an easy breakfast on the go!

Nutrition breakdown: 22 grams protein, 12 grams fat, 26 grams carbs (when including blueberries)

Dairy sensitivity is usually caused by a sensitivity to lactose, not chocolate milk. Your chocolate milk recipe above, contains heavy cream. Cream contains lactose and for someone who is lactose intolerant, this recipe will cause them problems.

You are definitely right about that Cindy, it's a lactose issue not a chocolate milk issue. However, the higher the fat content the lower the lactose. We've found that most people with a dairy intolerance aren't bothered by heavy cream.
