Hi y’all! Today I wanted to share with you the one protein smoothie (bowl) recipe that I’ve always seemed to go back to, for breakfast or post workout where my body need a bit of carbs and sugar to get the energy and prevent muscle lose after an intense workout! This recipe is very simple, but I really enjoy it because it’s easy to make, tastes great and is nutritionally balanced and macro-friendly~ I had this exact smoothie (well different toppings) every morning and post workout for about a year now.

1 scoop whey protein powder
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 medium banana
1/2 cup kale
1 tbsp. natural almond butter
1tbsp chia seeds
Pinch of cinnamon
3 ice cubes + water to thin if necessary
You can use any flavor of protein powder but personally I like to use chocolate flavour, and I use Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey. Of course you can use regular milk, other non-dairy milk in place of the almond milk if you like. (Since I am lactose intolerant) Here’s the nutritional breakdown for this protein smoothie excluding the toppings:
I usually have this when my body is depleted of sugar the most, which is first thing in the morning and post workout. And this is also a great pre-work out too, of course wait 15-20 mins because working out. This recipe is relatively low carb, if you skip the bananas, which I do on days where I don’t do important compound lift such as arms and abs day. (right now I am on a keto diet because I still want to lose the last bit of my lower abdominal fat to reveal the last section of my abs)
