A Protein Shake That Isn't Disgusting?!
Who knew it was possible?
To go along with my usual weekly gym routine, I wanted to add a protein shake into my diet to ensure that I’m getting enough protein and to aid in muscle recovery. I have been looking for a protein powder for a long time and I know I’m not the only person who finds them totally gross. A few people had recommended The Super Elixir Nourishing Protein Powder to me, so I reluctantly tried it out. Luckily for my tastebuds, I was pleasantly surprised!
If you haven’t heard much about The Super Elixir before, the main woman behind the brand is Elle Macpherson, who became passionate about the subject when learning about the body from her nutritionist. The first product to be released was the Alkalising Greens, which is a green superfood powder to be added into smoothies etc. Shortly after, they released the Nourishing Protein powder as an alternative to whey powder. Many protein powders on offer are whey protein based, which isn’t great if you have a dairy intolerance. This protein powder is both organic and vegan friendly, so it’s perfect for those of you that are conscious of that. The main ingredients in the product are organic pea protein, organic brown rice protein and organic cacao powder (mmm…chocolate).
I’ve been experimenting quite a bit with this powder and I’ve finally found a recipe that I don’t hate (that’s a big deal for my picky eating habits). I’ve been drinking this on the days I have been going to the gym, so around three days a week depending on how lazy I am.
MY RECIPE OF CHOICE
-1 large banana
-1 heaped tbsp flaxseed
-1 scoop of Nourishing Protein Powder (or one sachet of protein powder)
-3 Medjool Dates
-1 cup of milk (it can be dairy, oat, soy or almond – whatever you choose)
Blend it altogether in a blender (I was using my NutriBullet for this one) and drink!
