FoodScience Cake Batter Smoothie
Here at FoodScience, we’re always looking for ways to sneak a little sweetness into our days. From our exercises in self-control while we stare at the candy jar full of Snickers to our exercise in the fitness center, we want sweets involved somehow. That’s why we decided to invent the best post workout smoothie the world has ever known, making use of some of our best and most popular sports and muscle health supplements.
Blend the following in a blender:
1/2 cup organic vanilla cake mix
1 cup whole milk (or, if you prefer it, almond milk, though a little bit of dairy fat after a workout is our choice!)
Four generous scoops of ice
2 scoops Whey Superior Charge(Vanilla flavor)
125 mg of Aangamik DMG liquid
1/4 vanilla yogurt (optional)
When you pour out the drink, throw in:
1tbsp rainbow sprinkles for a fun burst of color and a bit of sugar, which is great for replenishing glycogen levels after a tough weightlifting sesh.
First in our list of judging criteria is taste (of course). This cake batter smoothie is unreal delicious—especially if you are craving something with a little nostalgia mixed in.
Second, this smoothie gives you a ton of the nutrients you need for workout recovery. Our whey is a high quality form from New Zealand. Mixing it into your drink provides you with both essential and non-essential amino acids, and supports muscle health, muscle building and tissue recovery, energy and immune system health.*
Milk provides proteins, calcium and amino acids, and DMG, or dimethylglycine, supports recovery, cardiovascular and immune system health and oxygen utilization. As a post-workout supplement, DMG reduces lactic acid build up in the muscle thereby shortening recovery time after strenuous exercise.*
So next time you hit the gym, hit your local vitamin store while you’re at it, and grab some FoodScience supplements. Don’t forget to ask if they sell cake mix so you can create the best post workout smoothie ever!
