Moms, dads and kids are just starting to discover what athletes have known for years: how incorporating Whey Isolate Protein into your family's diet can make you healthier and stronger. Based on the personal experience of using Integrated Supplements Whey Isolate Protein in my morning fruit smoothie, I was pleasantly surprised it doesn't taste chalky and goes down easily, unlike the ones I've tried as a fitness enthusiast.

Integrated Supplements tagline is the Planet's Purest Protein. Upon a closer look at the company's mission and reading through the ingredients on the product, it's easy to understand why. What makes this whey isolate protein unique is the patented ceramic filtration system that is employed to produce a product yielding the highest level of protein and antioxidants while at the same time delivering the lowest levels of fat, lactose and cholesterol. Certified kosher OU dairy, this dietary supplement is also low in sodium, gluten free and free of any artificial additives or preservatives. 

Recommended daily intake
  • Children 1-3, 13g per day - 1 scoop/10g protein
  • Children 4-8, 19g per day - 1 scoop/10g protein
  • Children 9-13, 34g per day - 1 scoop/10g protein
  • Teens 14-18, 50g per day - 2 scoops/20g protein
  • Adults & Seniors, 52g per day - 2 scoops/20g protein
  • Expecting Mothers, 71g per day - 2 scoops/20g protein
With such a delicious and healthful product to experiment with, suitable for every generation young and old, I decided to take it one step further. What I came up with is a beautiful looking, high protein and high anti-oxidant Blueberry Pie Parfait recipe which both finicky kids and us kids at heart will love.

Recipe


Blueberry Pie Parfait

This easy-to-make recipe takes blueberry pie to the next level. Not only is it very appetizing to look at, it is even better to eat, especially when you consider that this sweet dessert or healthy breakfast is more filling, nutritious and much lower in calories than indulging in a slice of home baked blueberry pie.

Time to Make: 30 minutes
Makes: 3 servings if using 10 oz parfait glasses 
or 6 servings if made in 5 oz glasses

1. Rinse blueberries well and drain before adding to non-stick sauce pan, reserving 1/4 cup of the berries to be used raw as a garnish later.

2. Add the cinnamon, flour and sugar plus 4 T. water to the blueberries in pan.

3. Cook on medium heat about 10-15 minutes or until berry mixture has the consistency and thickness of pie filling.

4. Remove from heat and cool.

Create the Parfaits

1. In a bowl blend the yogurt with the Whey Isolate Protein powder.

2. Remove the pie crust from pan and crumble into a second bowl.

3. To assemble parfaits use a spoon to layer crumbs, yogurt mixure and blueberry filling into each glass, repeat twice. Top each serving with one last spoon of yogurt and garnish with some fresh blueberries and crumbs.

4. Enjoy immediately or you can make ahead, cover with plastic wrap and serve several hours later or even make these in the evening as I did to serve to my family for breakfast the next morning.
