Homemade Post-Workout Shake

Hi all
 
Been experimenting with a post-workout shake to help get more veggies in during the day, and thought I would share the recipe.
 
Ingredients
  • 500ml Alpro Alomd Milk
  • 50g Spinach
  • 100g Frozen Broccoli
  • 1 x Banana (125g approx.)
  • 30g Unflavoured Impact Whey Isolate

 
I really wasn't sure what to expect, but it tasted amazing! The almond milk and banana mask the taste of the veggies, and it's really filling. The almond milk is a great replacement for cow's milk as it's high in fibre and has no mammalian estrogen, unlike cow's milk. This recipe makes enough to fill around 1 and a half shakers worth. Defo recommended, and you can experiment with flavours and different veggies.

I think i'd prefer spinach and broccoli on my dinner plate lol
Many moons ago when I was trying to put on weight I added ground almonds to my shakes. Bit gritty but it went down.

I'm the opposite mate, I'm really not a fan of spinach or broccoli so getting them down like this is a great alternative for me. especially post-workout. I may add kale in the future and perhaps different fruit such as blueberrys.

Yeah blueberries, strawberries, kiwis, raspberries. Can work out a bit pricey but frozen one's are cheaper I think and probably more refreshing ie: Frozen summer mix

Fructose and fibre are not good choices for a post workout shake.

my personal opinion is that it makes next to no difference. banana's are maybe 80% glucose and will help replenish the muscle glycogen. So if it was a choice between adding a banana (for taste) or a scoop of dextrose, then I'd choose the banana.

Well no, it's not 80% glucose, it's more like 50%, and that means in a 100g banana you'd be getting around 5.5g of glucose against 50g's with a scoop of dextrose, and that dextrose will be absorbed much faster due to the lack of fibre.
 
What you're describing is just a meal replacement shake, nothing 'post workout' worthy about it, at all.

Back in the day as a skinny teenager I had everything and anything. These days it's isolate & water post workout.
