Post Workout Protein ShakesA Day in the Life Food Health & Fitness Recipes Things We Love Tried & Tested
It’s like clockwork; wake up, get the kids lunches made and breakfast fed. Take them to school, take the dog for walk. Workout. Shower, get dressed. Protein shake.
Everyday, well, Monday to Friday at least, this is the routine. And I’ll tell you, I always look forward to my protein shake. I’m seriously obsessed with making them and breaking my fast with one.
There are two recipes that I swear by so thought I’d share them with you and give you some ideas of items you can use in your shakes!
My smoothies are designed to create a blood-sugar balancing, meal replacement shake in any flavor, with all of the macros you need post workout. And, depending on what you add into it, they will keep you fuller longer than with Protein Shake mix alone.
Starting your day off with a delicious smoothie will set your day up for success!
Each of my shakes will contain the following every time:
Fiber (10 grams or 1-2 tbsp) – I use one scoop of Fibre Plus. This gives me half of the suggested daily fibre requirements, and, keeps me regular 😉 LOL
1 stick of Digestion Plus which is my pre/probiotic.
Depending on the flavour that day, I will also include Greens Balance to give me my daily dose of fruits and vegetables and a great boost of energy!
Here are my top 2 go to’s right now:
200 ml water
200 ml almond milk
1 tsp all natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)
1 tsp ground coffee
1 scoop chocolate protein (marble cake flavour is also excellent in this recipe)
1 scoop protein boost
1 scoop fibre boost
Blend with ice cubes
1 scoop Vanilla protein, 1 scoop protein boost, 1 scoop fibre, 1 scoop greens, 1 stick digestion plus
1/2 banana, handful of strawberries and blackberries & spinach or kale
1 tsp peanut butter or almond butter
200ml water & 200ml Almond milk
Those two are my staples. But honestly you can add in anything you want! From different milks, fresh ingredients, frozen ingredients, and pantry items.
Milks – oat milk, soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk
Fruits and Veg – Any berry, coconut, cherries, mango, pineapple, spinach, kale, avocado, cauliflower. peach, apple
Pantry / Alternatives – oats, nutmeg, cinnamon, chia seeds, flax meal, shredded coconut, granola, nuts, matcha, cocoa nibs
So tell me, what is your protein shake go to? What recipe will you make?
