Homemade Protein Drink

High Performance Meal Replacement

Delicious Homemade Protein DrinksI have tried many different supplements and products to enhance performance prior to competition. The best results I have achieved so far are with my own homemade protein drink. Below is the recipe I've used for quite some time. My primary acivity is ice hockey, which I play 3-5 times a week. The amount of time before the activity that I consume this shake depends on the sport. For example, I drink my protein shake 1-2 hours prior to ice hockey. If it's closer to 1 hour, then I make it more liquid; if it's 2 hours or more, I make it thicker. For running, anything I consume is hours before. For cycling, it's about 1-2 hours. I have not experimented with swimming.

You will notice that I do not use ice in my recipe. This is because I do not like my shakes really cold or really thick. My daughter, on the other hand, loves them super thick, so I add ice for her.

In a blender:

2 Organic medium sized bananas

A variety of organic fruit (I use cranberries, blueberries, wildberries or blackberries & lots of strawberries)

2 scoops of O So Slender Vanilla Protein Powder

1 scoop of

Organic Flax Oil

Organic Fat Free plain yogurt

Primorye® adaptogenic liquid formula

Lifeshots™ antioxidant liquid formula

Organic orange juice

I mix it for about 20-30 seconds. Pour and enjoy! There is usually enough for 2 people. You can just adjust the ingredients to suit the viscosity and volume you want.
