thumb_dsc03623_1024This is one of my go to recipes post-workout. I add skim milk powder to increase the protein content. Skim milk powder is a great alternative to protein powder without the cost or concern of potential contamination with banned substances. I use regular (not instant) skim milk powder. Regular skim milk powder is more dense than instant milk powder, so less is needed. Some of my favourite variations for this smoothie include using flavoured yogurt (my favourite is crème brule) or adding a tbsp. of peanut butter for an extra kick!
