I have come a long way from my original post workout shake which started out as H2O and Whey Protein in a shaker, the complimentary one from the local Vitamin Shoppe that you got with your purchase of supplements. Sound familiar anyone? It tasted terrible, but wasn't that the recipe for gains?! I have learned to add beneficial ingredients to my post workout shake. This required me to upgrade from a shaker to an ACTUAL blender. Sometimes when I am working out people approach me asking how I stay fit, healthy and continue to enhance my physique. I thought I would blog about my current shake and detail the ingredients I use.
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
400 ml of Oat Milk (add or reduce based on desired thickness)
2 scoops of Plant-Based Protein (I enjoy the Wegman's brand- vanilla)
1 tsp of ginger
1/2 tsp of Turmeric
1 tbsp of peanut butter (I like using Crazy Richard's 100% Peanuts- Creamy)
1 tsp of Organic Pure Moringa (I use this in powder form but you can also purchase it in plant form at certain markets)
Moringa is a leafy green superfood that provides uplifting caffeine free energy. Moringa has more protein, iron, fiber and calcium than kale. Just 1tsp provides all day vitality.
This is my current shake during the spring and summer months. I will be back to share my bulking protein shake that I use in the winter season.
