When you buy giant tubs of whey at a time, you can get so bored of the same flavour, day in, day out. I usually buy vanilla so I can add things to it to stop this happening. My current favourite is this classic American combo. It’s thick, sweet and a delicious change from standard protein shakes. The chia seeds and peanut butter will increase your good fat content too, so this really fills you up.
Note: You definitely need a straw for this, or you may as well just drink a shake and then eat a spoonful of jam afterwards.
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Juice 1 lime
- Big handful of strawberries or raspberries
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 vanilla flavoured whey protein serving (I use 3 scoops CNP Pro-Peptide)
- 2-300ml semi-skimmed milk/almond milk/whatever milk you want
Make the jam by blending the berries and lime juice together, then pouring over the chia seeds. Leave for about 10 minutes until it forms a jelly.
Meanwhile, make the protein shake using the whey powder and milk and blend the peanut butter into it. When the chia jelly is ready, pour over the peanut butter shake and add a straw!
