I have searched through the other protein powder questions and didn't see this issue specifically addressed. Do you use protein powder? If so, how much, what kind and why? If not, then why not? Curious, thanks.

I'm certain this would not be FF-legal. It is lactose--which is milk sugar. The whey protein we use in our smoothies is the PROTEIN component of the whey, while this sweet product is the lactose (sugar) component of whey.
