All of us that use protein powder know that mixing in water with ice is good but could it be a bit better??
Yes it could! By adding one simple ingredient that you normally would not think of into the blender will cause your protein drink to become a spoon eating shake.
Plus there is an added benefit to this ingredient as well, essential fatty acids and rich in potassium that your body needs.
A drum roll please....AVACADO!!!
Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.
One more thing that most people don't realize about avacados, they have a neutral flavor to them. Meaning they take on the flavor of what ever they are mixed with.
So a simple and healthly recipe
- 8 oz of water
- 6 to 8 ice cubes
- one scoop of protein
- a 1/4 slice of Avocado
blend it pour into a glass and eat with a spoon.
