Save £40 a month by making your own protein shakes!

Protein is an important part of our diet and is vital for the maintenance of all body tissues, including muscle. The consumption of protein is broken down into amino acids, required to build a vast array of other proteins and structures.

Becoming ever so popular is protein supplements used to gain the maximum muscle growth usually following a workout in the gym. But a great source of protein can be gained via an introduction of high protein foods to their diet, and what better way to do that than by making your very own protein shake, (How to make protein smoothies). This means you can consume larger amounts of protein fast without painlessly eating a dry tin of tuna 2-3 times a day.

It may even turn out to be cheaper, and more fun!

So here goes, please follow the instructions below!

     1)      Start by pouring soy milk into the blender, followed by seeds of your choice (we recommend chia seeds), and then add some peanut butter.

Soy milk is important as it contains a higher source of protein compared to standard milk.

      2)      Add a banana, followed by some cocoa powder. At this point you can go a little experimental, you may want to add some strawberries or a maybe some ice cream to sweeten things up. However, you could also be a brave soul and add one or a few raw eggs. The cocoa and peanut butter should dominate the overall taste.

        Now it’s time to place on that lid and blend those lovely ingredients together. There you go, you now have your very own protein smoothie.

This shake without the added extras is around 18-20 grams of protein, but to get the most precise reading just weigh everything you add.

This protein shake takes minutes to make and tastes delicious.

Oh, and just a side note doesn’t over consume your recommended daily allowance of 175 grams of protein a day. Also, if you do choose to eat raw eggs make sure they are in date and are not cloudy when added.

So now you know how to make a protein smoothie it’s your turn to let us know what you added to yours!
