Protein Smoothie Recipes

protein smoothie, allmax nutrition

Below are 3 of my favourite protein smoothie recipes. I will usually have one or two per day. One for post-workout and one as a meal replacement. The meal replacement ones usually contain a fat from healthy oil, seeds, nuts, or avocado (this makes a nice thick shake). This is because the fat is slow to digest and satiating. You want quicker digestion after a workout so it is best to avoid fat immediately after. I usually use whey protein powder, but it may be also beneficial to use a combination protein (whey, casein, and egg) because they have varied digestion rates. I also try to go natural as much as possible by avoiding artificial sweeteners. I use most frequently use AllMax IsoNatural, but sometimes ATP or Ergogenics New Zealand Whey.
