1461 Calorie High Protein Smoothie

 

DSC_0922

This is only an estimate of what this smoothie can provide, 1461 calories, and 47 grams of protein (woah!) It’s great for people who want to increase their daily calories, perhaps gain weight, or those who do body-building.  You can really alter the ingredients, depending on your preferences (but this may alter the calorie and protein intake). You can also add protein powder, or more fruits for extra protein and quick carbohydrates. However, if you’re looking to significantly increase your protein intake, make sure you eat protein with every meal (around 20-30 grams of protein)  because your body cannot actually absorb a very high amount of protein at once, therefore, for building muscles, it is more beneficial to spread out your protein intake during the day.

  • 2 cups of cow’s milk:  84 calories, 8g of protein (or the milk of your choice, please note that cow’s milk can cause you to feel bloated, especially when drinking such a rich smoothie, so I would recommend another type of milk!)
  • 45 g oats:   175 calories, 8g of protein
  • 2 bananas: 200 calories, 2 g of protein
  • 100g almonds: 600 calories,  21g of protein
  • 1 large tablespoon of peanut butter: 100 calories, 4g of  protein
  • 1 large tablespooon of almond butter: 100 calories, 4g of protein
  • 3 tablespoons of honey: 192 calories
  • 1 tsp maca powder: 10 calories
  • Ice (or frozen fruits/bananas)

Blend all the ingredients together (I usually like to blend the almonds first so they turn to powder or you can soak them in water overnight to soften them up) and enjoy the yummines! ♥
