Lo- Carb Protein Shake  



If you are primarily looking to improve muscle gains and are not too concerned of your fat intake, Id recommend you try this Recipe. It combines a mix of Whey Protein to make sure you get your necessary grams and also provides a high fat mix to feed your muscle groups. So here is is what you will need:

  • Blender [Need one of these?]
  • 1 Scoop of Whey Protein Powder Chocolate or Vanilla (Lo Carb)
  • Half a Cup of Cottage Cheese (I recommend Vitamilk)
  • Quarter Cup of Whipping Cream
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • 6-8 Ice Cubes

The amount listed should serve one person and allow a little extra for a quick fix later on or if you are just in thirsty for more!

Step 1
Place the Cottage Cheese, Whipping cream and Water into the Blender and turn on to a high speed. The ingredients here are all soft and therefore we can use a high setting to mix them thoroughly without worrying about breaking the ingredients apart.

Step 2
After around 30 seconds, stop the Blender and add the scoop of Whey Protein. Check the tub for your weights recommended Daily Intake.

Step 3
The mixture will be nicely mixed after around 30 seconds more. During this time, crush the ice finely, placing the cubes in a bag and using a Mincing Hammer to crush them. Alternatively you can bang them on the side.

Step 4
Stop the Blender and add the crushed ice, mix at a moderate speed for around 20 seconds. Check to see that the mixture is the right texture. It should be a thick, yogurt-like mix.

Step 5

NOTE: This Smoothie should be consumed within 20 minutes. This is to prevent protein breakdown in the whey powder. Ideally, you should consume this 5 minutes after working out.
