After each session with my clients, I always recommend a post-workout snack with protein (to assist with muscle recovery). There has been a lot of talk lately about chocolate milk being a good choice. I personally think chocolate milk is too high in sugar, but it’s certainly better than nothing. The Toronto Star published their answer to this question, which offers a better alternative (and recipe similar to mine: See recipe)
This recipe is super versatile, and you can eat it as part of a protein-heavy breakfast or a filling afternoon snack—whatever you need! You can also use any flavor of whey and variety of nut butter you like. Not sure where to start? Try the classic flavor combination of peanut butter with Optimum Nutrition Double Rich Chocolate Gold Standard whey.
1. Combine the ingredients in a bowl and then pour the mixture into a small lined tray.
2. Pop this into the fridge or freezer to set, and then chop up into slices.
Add in some chopped nuts for an extra crunch.
