Brando’s Morning Power Shake

Want loads of energy in the AM while getting your diet on the right track?  Try this shake!

Brando’s Morning Power Shake

  • 1 cup 0% Horizon Organic Milk (9g protein)
  • 1-2 scoops Vanilla Impact Protein by Chicago Nutrition Company (24-48g protein)
  • 1 handful Kirkland (Costco) Fiesta Blend frozen fruit (~1g protein)

Drop in a blender and mix until all fruit has been pulverized.  I use the Magic Bullet blender (~$40 at Costco) and it is super fast with very easy cleanup.

Depending on how much protein powder you use, you are looking at ~34-58g protein.  Your target intake of Protein each day should be around one gram per one pound of your target weight.  That is why there should be discretion on how many scoops of powder.  I use two for me, but one for Chris.

    Heh… I don’t drink it alone. Substitute whatever you like for the 0%. Soy milk will add more protein, coconut milk will yank the diary way down.

    Actually, after looking at the ingredients, Soy milk has LESS protein than the 0%. It is a different kind of protein of course.
