My favorite post-workout snack is a protein smoothie.
I usually make it up as I go, but it's usually a little something like this:
Half a banana (I like to freeze mine with the peel off)
Mixed fruit (fill the cup about halfway)
I scoop soy protein isolate (get from GNC)
2 servings Pure Via no cal sweetener
1/2 a cup OJ
Then I blend it all in the Magic bullet.
I prefer soy isolate instead of the flavored mixes because I like to cut out calories where I can. I have a sweet tooth so I use PureVia (stevia), which is calorie free, for sweetness. The one at my supermarket comes in little single serving packets and the box looks like this:
I add in OJ at the end to fill the cup most of the way.
Then the fun part is using the Magic Bullet. I've found that it blends better than a lot of blenders, and is better for single servings.
