Tasty Nutritious Smoothies & Shakes On The Go

By: 0

Many of my athletes ask what should they take pre/post workout in terms of nutrition.  In a perfect world good ole fashion food is the best option but sometimes time gets the best of us.

The next solution: Protein Smoothies/Shakes.

My rule of thumb: If it doesn’t taste good, you probably aren’t going to eat it.

Make it tasty!

 

Here are a few recipes to give you quick fast nutrition

“Creamsicle”

1c fresh orange juice

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (24g-30g+)

2c ice

Blend until smooth or shake in a protein shaker

 


“Peanut Butter Cup”

1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder (or use vanilla and add cocoa powder)
