High Fat, High Protein, High Fibre Paste
This recipe was written by MT member Tony Barnes & was originally published in The MuscleTalker September 2006 edition Ingredients
500g Whey Protein Powder
250ml Udo's Oil
50g Husk - Psyllium Husk Powder
50g Frozen Berries
Put the oil and some of the water (about 250ml should do for now) into a blender along with the berries. Give a quick blend to break the berries up a little. Start adding in the whey, blending and adding a little more water as necessary; you are aiming for quite a thick mix here, so don't go overboard on the water. Once you've got a good mixture that is blending consistently, put in the fibre. This will slow things down considerably and the mixture should really thicken up quite quickly*. You may need to scoop around in the blender (whilst off!) to make sure everything mixes without putting too much water in. You should end up with a very gelatinous paste that can be poured into your container of choice.
Once you've made it, place it in the fridge; if you have lots of small storage tubs, this is better as you can then freeze it; but don't expect it to come out like ice cream! Any kept in the fridge really needs eating within about 4-5 days.
(Pay close attention to the noise your blender is making - if it sounds like it's about to die, turn it off and hand mix a little! This is not a thin mixture by any means)Information
The The first mouthful will be a bit of a shock; I'll be honest, I really wasn't sure what I thought of it at first, but this is purely due to the texture attained from the fibre. After the first mouthful it became very edible, and was very filling and satiating.
The amounts can be scaled up or down depending on how much you want to make, with the above making about 1.5 litres (depending on blender, whey and fibre you may get more or less). If you keep the ingredient ratios the same, a smallish portion of about 100ml will be roughly 26g of protein at about 260kcal, a 60:37:3 of fat:protein:carb with up to 4g of fibre in it, so perfect for anyone avoiding carbs or wanting a bed time snack.
