If you had asked me even 3 months ago if I would consider drinking protein drinks I would have looked at you like you were talking another language….
But as we get farther into our workouts I am finding I need more – there are days I am so tired after training that if I don’t get something low cal/high protein in me I will ravensouly eat anything in front of me. So a quick protein shake and I am good to go till dinner and my muscles don’t hurt like crazy the next day.
So I had been tinkering with how I could take my blender frappes and turn them into hiker friendly shakes. I came up with one I really like and an 8-ounce serving packs in 29 grams protein.
See the recipe for Creamsicle Protein Smoothie here.
Whey protein powder – EAS brand. (They sell big bags at Costco and Sams Club)
Vanilla powder – find it online or at coffee supply shops – it is the stuff you sprinkle on top of a latte.
Yogurt powder – find online. Great stuff!
Freeze dried oranges – find online or use any other freeze dried fruit, crumbled up.
I will be working on more variations in the future. Yum!
