Face full of protein, shake

Sometimes the name for a recipe just writes itself. Do I really need to say anything more?

Face full of protein, shake

INGREDIENTS:

  • two scoops Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Gold Standard slow release protein (vanilla)
  • 16 oz water (or no fat milk if you need the extra calories or calcium)
  • 1 avocado (pitted)
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed oil

METHOD:

  1. place all ingredients in a drink mixer or blender
  2. mix for one minute
  3. pour into glasses

Casein proteins are my new favourite thing. They are a slow-release protein, meaning your body stays anabolic for 24 hours, which is awesome. I chose avocado because it’s an excellent MUFA source (MonoUnsaturated Fatty Acid), which aids specifically in targetting belly fat. The flaxseed oil is also another great MUFA source, as well as omegas 3-6-9.

The vanilla protein is incredibly thick. When mixed with milk alone this is almost like trying to drink pudding. Combined with the surprisingly enjoyable taste of avocado, this is a fantastic, refreshing, and healthy summer drink.

Enjoy your face full of protein!

  1. Much as my normal response would be to scowl at you for non-Eve-related posting I have to ask… Is that your photo or one that you’ve pulled from elsewhere?

    • I’m going to put this opinion out there for you Wens, and others that “scowl”.

      Do Capsuleers not eat? Is there no food in New Eden at all? Do people still enjoy taste?

      The way I see it, while much has changed in the Eve universe, the basic evolution of humanity has not. Everybody poops. Everybody eats. Everybody has sex.

      If I post a beer recipe, will that get scowled at? I see many mentions in many posts of beer, and yet beer is an “earth” type beverage reference.

      So why beer and not avocado smoothies?

      I think avocados would be incredibly cost prohibitive for the regular population, but being a capsuleer, I’m sure I can afford it.

      Not an attack, just a thought. Why isn’t it Eve related? Because it’s not starships or combat?

      To answer your question, that particular image is from a quick Google search. Prettied up the post a little.
