07 Dec My High Performance Power Protein Smoothie Recipe
Here’s one of my all-time favorite recipes for a great power protein smoothie.
- A Handful of ice cubes
- 1 Cup of Organic Fat Free (or 1-2% Lowfat) Milk
- 1 Scoop of Quality Whey Protein Powder
- 2 Tablespoons of Organic Flax Seeds
- 1 Tablespoon of Almond Butter
- Blend all ingredients in blender until Smooth!
There you have a it! A simple, complete, power packed protein shake.
- Calories: 420
- Carbs: 33g
- Protein: 35g
- Fat: 19g
- Sugars: 16g
Without the Protein:
- Calories: 220
- Carbs: 20g
- Protein: 12g
- Fat: 13g
- Sugars: 14g
When to use? I use this primarily post workout, but could be used pre-workout or during your workout. This will depend on the intensity and duration of your training program, but this smoothie has been a winner for me for a long time. Reasonable carbs (not too high) and high in protein (whey and casein) with the added protein powder.
Not only a great workout protein shake, but also has added benefits of key amino acids, essential fatty acids, phytonutrients, vitamins, and trace minerals.
Like I said, this is a winner.
A quick post, but wanted to share a great recipe with you to maximize your workout and recovery efforts. I’ll be talking more about how to effectively use this type of power protein supplementation in future posts and on the podcast, for sure!
Also, be sure to listen to the most recent episode of the podcast on the #1 total body training exercise!
