First of all this shake looks great – would be great for a morning breakfast shake! I have a question…

Does the xanthan gum and guar gum really make a big difference in protein shakes? I assume it’s for thickening? I’ve never tried either of them in a shake.

They really transform the smoothies! They are just thickening agents but they really do a number on them!
