Getting enough protein is one of the keystone staples of a healthy-eating plan. Most of us could use a boost of it to steady energy levels, support body composition, and dampen cravings.

When you find a protein option that tastes like an indulgent treat without added sugar or artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners, it’s a win-win for both your taste buds and your metabolism. While we’re big fans of chocolate and vanilla flavors, who doesn’t love to have even more options?

After extensive member input, we’re excited to introduce our newest flavor in our protein-powder lineup:

Sea Salt Caramel

For a limited time, it’s joining the chocolate and vanilla flavors as options in Life Time’s All-in-One Shake Mix offerings, which are available as both Grass-Fed Whey+ All-in-One and the dairy-free Vegan+ All-in-One which is made with a blend of pea, chia, and chlorella proteins.

The All-in-One Shake Mix is a client and coach favorite for multiple reasons, including:

  • There are 30 grams of clean protein per serving
  • You can mix it easily both into recipes and alone with water or unsweetened nut milk in a shaker cup
  • It delivers more than 50 percent of the daily value of several essential vitamins and minerals in their most bioactive forms to fuel metabolism
  • Probiotics and digestive enzymes are also included to support gut health
  • It’s free of added sugar, gluten, and synthetic colors, flavors, and sweeteners

Although the sea salt caramel flavor is great when consumed on-the-run mixed with water alone, our nutrition team quickly got to work in the kitchen to discover other delicious ways to enjoy it. Below are a few of our team’s favorite recipes that use it.
