Blueberries & Cream Protein Shake Easy Scale: Easy
Ok so maybe I don’t get an A+ for originality here, but there’s nothing quite like a post workout blueberry shake, with its protein for gainz and medium glycemic carbs for refueling. Most of us know blueberries are good to ingest, particularly after a workout because they contain anthocyanins and calcium D glucarate. Anthocyanins give blueberries their bluish pigment, and are powerful antioxidants that have natural anti-inflammatory effects. Studies have shown that calcium D glucarate may reduce serum estrogen levels in the body which will support healthy testosterone levels (thank you Chad!).
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
½ cup blueberries fresh or frozen
1 pack of stevia
2 packs of monk fruit sweetener
½ tray of ice
¾ cup of water (we use alkaline water but we can get into that later) If you aren’t cutting calories, you can also use unsweetened regular or vanilla Almond or cashew milk.
1 tsp. chia seeds
I pour half of the water in first, then the whey and sweeteners, then the ice, then the blueberries, and finally the rest of the water. Pouring some water on bottom helps the blades spin and prevents the powder from sticking to the bottom when mixed, and pouring it on top helps prevent “puff backs” in your face when you open the blender. Blend until all the ice is broken to your taste.
