This White Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Meal-Replacement Shake will have you wondering how it could possibly be good for youby Cassandre Cadieux
After doing a cardio workout, whether it is jogging, taking a spin class, or lifting weights, it’s important to replenish your body with some protein in order to allow your muscles to rest and heal properly. By doing so, you can avoid painful recoveries and tired, unusable muscles. Personally, when I’m done working out, I’m never motivated to drink the protein shake that was recommended to me by a trainer. No matter how good the flavour sounds, it always just tastes like chalk, causing me to lose my endorphin high. This changed when a friend of mine recommended a protein meal-replacement shake that actually tastes quite good.
1 scoop of Promacil White Chocolate Protein Powder
½ cup of Greek Yogurt (I used Danone’s Oikos)
2 tbs of Peanut Butter
½ cup Skim Milk (or Almond Milk)
All you have to do is blend the ingredients until you reach the consistency you’d like. I personally like mine quite thick so that I can imagine that I’m drinking a milkshake. Mine looked like this:
Then I put it into a glass and enjoyed my post-workout treat. It’s creamy, peanut buttery, and delicious. The best part is that it has everything you need nutrition-wise:
The shake contains all the fats that are good for your body as well as enough protein to allow your muscles to recover from the workout. Due to its 353 calories and the fact that it is quite filling, I would recommend drinking it as a meal-replacement, but this shake could always be paired with a piece of fruit or some yogurt to keep you going until your next meal.
I’ve starting drinking these for lunch after a workout, and I find myself looking forward to my sweet treat. You will never return to the boring chalky protein drinks after trying this shake; it’s like having dessert for lunch!
