Protein Super Shakes – My Essential Recipes!

Protein super shake

If you are anything like me BREAKFAST can be a rush and it’s one of the hardest times of the day to get proper nutrition!  I often opt for a SUPER SHAKE that combines a protein powder with some fruit and/or vegetables and some added healthy fats! It’s basically a meal in a glass! This way I know my first meal of the day isn’t lacking any vital nutrition!  These are two of my favourite recipes!  I also use SUPER SHAKES as a great way to refuel after a tough workout!

I personally prefer plant based protein powders and my ‘go to’ brands are the super shake powders (pimped up with added vitamins) from pulsin and the whole food powders from purition!

Here are two of my essential recipes!  Just chuck in a blender and away you go!

 

CHOCOLATE AND BANANA BREAKFAST SUPER SHAKE

  • SERVING (30/40g) of CHOCOLATE PROTEIN POWDER
  • 1/2 LARGE BANANA
  • TBSP CHIA SEEDS
  • 250/300ML UNSWEETENED OAT MILK
