Gotta carb it up!

Like I said, this is slowly but surely becoming a food blog. As promised in the previous food  post, I’m going to show you our pre-serious-ass-busting-workout shake. The only difference between mine and D’s is that he uses “All in One” protein powder also from Protein World, while I use “The Slender Blend” protein powder, an he uses a full serving (that’s four scoops) while I only use three scoops. Like I mentioned earlier, I only drink this version if I intend to do two workouts back-to-back (usually it’s cross-train and cycling), otherwise I go for the other lighter, fresher tasting shake.

What I use for this one:

  • a shaker (the same one from Protein World-I need to up my shaker-game)
  • 3 scoops of chocolate flavored “Slender Blend” (this version feels richer and tastes great when combined with a banana) 
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder (makes the shake taste amazing and keeps the cravings away)
  • 300 ml almond milk
  • 10 gr canah fiber

Again, blend it altogether until you have a smooth consistency.

Close to the other one, this one has about 300 kcal, but a totally different nutritional structure (I know this thanks to the UP app): it only provides you 9 g of fiber and no unsaturated fats, but gives you a whooping 38 g of carbs and 26 g of protein which should keep your energy levels up for longer.


Because of the high-carb values I never use this shake as a meal-replacement as I’m trying to cut my carb intake as much as I can. D, on the other hand, uses this recipe as often as possible, but that’s because we have different body goals. 

Hope you’ll like this recipe.
