Today I show you how to make a great after workout shake for higher carb days. It tastes great and has some awesome ingredients.
1/2 cup of oats
8 oz. non-fat milk
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 medium banana
1 scoop whey protein (26 g.)
First you add 1/2 cup of oats to the blender. Next, add 8 oz. of non-fat milk to the blender. Next, add 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Next, add one medium sized banana. Finally, add one scoop of whey protein. Blend it all together and drink!
This smoothie is powerful. I use it on my Saturday carb up days after my training session. It helps guide my body in the right direction after a long week on low carb meals. This guy is a whopping 761 calories. It contains 39 g. of protein, 107 g. of carbs and just 9 g. of fat. This means this smoothie is 70% carbs, 20% protein and 10% fat. This is exactly what I am aiming for.
If the calories are too high simply cut back on the amount of ingredients you use.
