Proteins are the building blocks of life. The body needs protein to repair and maintain itself.
Every cell in the human body contains protein. It is a major part of the skin, muscles, organs, and glands.
You need protein in your diet to help your body repair cells and make new ones. Protein is also important for growth and development during childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy.
We came across a really delicious recipe on www.proteinpow.com that we had to share with you. A wonderful work day snack, evening treat or healthy spoil for the kids.
Even better would be to replace the sugar with xylitol, or to rather use a vanilla protein power.

1 Cup of Skim Milk
1 3/4 Cups of Peanut Butter
4 Scoops of Whey Protein (Any flavour)
A sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar for taste
Combine the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Spread the mix evenly into a glass dish and place it in the refrigerator for the required eight hours.
