Do you ever get sick and tired of the same old protein shake after your workout? If so, it’s time for you to meet “Protein Sludge.”
This recipe is designed for you to achieve your protein needs without consuming the same ol’ shake everyday. Protein sludge is a mixture of protein powder, a binding agent, and liquid (such as water or milk).
You can get pretty creative with these recipes, throwing in all sorts of berries, fruit, nuts, or whatever you like. However, I suggest you stick with the basic recipe for the first time and then build on that.
So here’s the most common recipe for “Protein Sludge:”
- Two tablespoons of Peanut Butter (substitute almond butter if you prefer)
- 2 Scoops of Whey Protein
- Water (start with just a little, mix, then add more to desired consistency)
This works with many different flavors of protein, so get creative! I’ve only tried this with vanilla whey and cookies and cream, but I’m sure strawberry and brownie would taste wonderful too!
Anyway, if you’re looking for a powerful snack that will help you meet your protein requirements with a consistency of yogurt and ice cream, try out Protein Sludge today! Let me know what you think in the comments.
