Guys, I have always been a fan of post-workout shake and always experiment with the mix with my new portable blender. When I mention experiment, it means playing around with one or two key ingredients, however, I still keep the main ingredient same to get the best out of my post-workout shake.
For me as a guy who workouts like a mean freak, post workout shake will always be about recovery, progress and gain with some healthy calories and of course protein and carbs. At the moment, I am not trying any Amino or any pre-workout drinks and to be very honest I don’t even remember the last time when I used a pre-workout supplement/drink.
So here’s what you will need: a cup of good old OATS, 1-2 Banana 9over-ripe one preferred), Whey Protein (optional for people who think they are just fart powders) or any malt, dried cranberries, almonds, dates and soy milk.
Well, there’s no secret to how to blend but I would advise you to blend the mixture without soy milk first to ensure a smooth creamy smoothie and then go for one more round with milk. Adding ice cream is not a bad idea at all.
While gaining, I like to experiment with adding Creatine and Glutamine to the shake.
