Happy Monday. Last week we went over how to make your very own Almond Butter. While it’s always a good thing to have a well received post, we figured let’s not get boring and change gears.
So here’s a recipe for the best post-workout shake you’ll ever have, which’ll make sure those greedy muscles of yours stay fed after you’re finished hitting the iron.
Let’s get started.
Workout Nutrition DIY: The Best Damn Post-Workout Shake You’ll Ever Have.
For those who’ve bought either SUPP UP. No Bull, Whole Food Military Nutrition On The Go, or SUPP UP. No Bull, Whole Food Military Nutrition At Home, you’ll know why this workout shake in particular is so damn effective, as in both books I’ve listed the importance of the ingredients, their benefits, and why (not to mention how) they work together so well.
This works very well in conjunction with my new book, SUPP UP. No Bull, Gym In A Bag Workout Guide, which provides guidance on the best portable workout equipment to own, a breakdown of how muscles are and can be effectively worked, and customizable workout plans. If you haven’t already check it out now, either in paperback or as an e-book.
Makes: One post workout shake.
Prep Time: 1-2 minutes.
Cook Time: 0
Total Time: 2 minutes
Items Needed: A protein shaker bottle. OPTIONAL: A hand blender (if you like it smooth) OR a protein shaker bottle with a blender built in.
- 24 g of Casein Hydrolysate
- 12 g HBCD (Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin)
- 5 g Creapure (micronized creatine)
- 500 mg (about 2 mini scoops) ALCAR (Acetyl L-Carnitine)
- 250 mL Water
- 50 mL Juice Concentrate
- Fill your shaker with 50 mL of either orange or strawberry & apple juice concentrate (also known as high juice, squash, or cordial), then add 250 mL of water.
- Thrown in all your ingredients, Casein Hydrolysate FIRST.
- Give it a rigorous shake, or push the button to blend it (if you have a shaker with built in blender)
- Take off shaker top.
There are a plethora of reasons this shake is far better than your average, run of the mill, whey protein concentrate shake.
Casein Hydrolysate trumps whey concentrate as you only need half the amount you’d usually require from a regular post-workout whey shake (40-50 grams).
HBCD doesn’t have the “crash” like Maltodextrin, and works effectively with Casein Hydrolysate (explained further in both books), ensuring muscles are replenished fully – thus leading to better gains from said workouts.
Micronized Creatine is included for obvious reasons, and ALCAR, well, if you read the book you’ll know why I like to think of it as a little secret weapon.
