Smoothies or shakes are very popular with those looking to buff themselves up a bit. Most of the time, these shakes are loaded with inefficient and harmful ingredients like soy, sugar, fillers, and artificial flavours. If your goal in working out is to have the stamina to make it a good one, and build muscle mass as well, you’re much better off with this smoothie recipe that delivers bioavailable protein and a spectrum of other nutrients required for energy and recuperation.
Far too often, gym rats and fitness enthusiasts go for the protein powder with the most grams of protein for the cheapest price. Unfortunately, these powders are so grossly inefficient in helping build endurance and muscle and actually do more harm than good. The purpose of this smoothie recipe is to deliver a highly concentrated and clean source of amino acids so that you can make the most of your workouts, and heal your body in between for maximum effectiveness.
