Is it possible to make a Post Workout Shake without protein powder? Absolutely!
When I first began working out at the gym I would often get a protein shake after training. A creamy cappuccino flavoured protein shake, oh so creamy and ever so yummy. At €4 a pop I found the shake to be a tad pricey so I started looking into buying my own protein powder and making my shake at home. Once I read the ingredients at the back of the protein powder bottle that was the last time I considered buying protein powder. Here we go again with the added sugar, salt and carrageenan. Same reason I stopped buying almond milk and started making it. Surely there’s a better way. I am 100% positive that Mother Nature has provided us with everything we need to replenish our bodies post workout. Carbs, protein, essential fatty acids, electrolytes, and antioxidants. All of these can be sourced naturally. I’ll take real food over supplements any day!
Without further ado here’s my formula for the Perfect Post Workout Shake sans protein powder. First off you must maintain this order, especially if like myself you do not own a high-speed blender.Step 1 Liquids, Step 2 soft ingredients, Step 3 frozen ingredients and Step 4 nut butters last only after an initial whirl.
