Sometimes the name for a recipe just writes itself. Do I really need to say anything more?
Face full of protein, shake
- 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
- place all ingredients in a drink mixer or blender
- mix for one minute
- 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!
