When it comes to hard training athletes, high calories and nutrient density are mandatory. It doesn't really matter if you are a triathlete, bodybuilder in bulking phase, marathon runner or an infantry soldier training for deployment, you need calories and nutrients. Our High Protein Smoothie Recipe for Athletes is easy and quick to prepare but contains all the nutrients you need before a workout.
- 1 medium banana(101 g)
- 2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter
- 300 ml (10oz) of whole milk or use almond milk
- 1 scoop of protein powder
One important thing to notice is that I hate those smoothies which consist of 15 ingredients which you have to go and shop around for. For me, it is a meal which sometimes I consume day in and day out, so I don't want to spend too much time preparing it. I like it tasty, simple and fast.
Here is the example of the smoothie I started to drink pretty often recently, it is easy to make, contains a few ingredients, tasty and nutrient dense. Feel free to throw in some ice in it, it makes the final product even better. Just make sure your blender can crush ice.
