This shake is high in calories and protein. It can be a good option if you have a sore throat or find food hard to swallow. If you want to use different fruit, pieces of mango also work well in this recipe.
Use only pasteurized egg whites, not raw eggs. Pasteurized egg whites are processed to get rid of bacteria. The product is usually sold in a liquid carton.
