Tips:

  • Protein: Feel free to adjust the amount depending on your macronutrient and training goals. And if whey is not an option for you alternative sources like casein, rice, pea, and vegan proteins work just as well.
  • Carbs: Up the amount of banana in the smoothie (or add some oats) to increase the carbohydrate content to help fuel a long intense workout or enhance glycogen replenishment post workout.
