The Tim Ferriss Four Hour Body Protein Shake
A NOTE ON SKIPPING BREAKFAST
If you skip breakfast even once a week, or opt for a non-breakfast like coffee and toast even once a week, make the blender your first stop after getting out of bed. The following recipe can also be used as a meal replacement or pre-bed snack:
- 24 oz (3 cups) 2% or whole organic milk
- 30 g whey protein isolate (chocolate tends to work best)
- 1 banana
- 3 heaping tbsp almond butter with no added sugar, maltodextrin, or syrups.
- 5 ice cubes
Caloric and protein profile with 2% milk (approximate): 970 cal, 75 g protein
*If you can afford it, a Vitamix blender is a great tool. It is expensive, but it is a good powerful blender. Another (cheaper) option is an immersion blender. This is actually my personal favorite as it is super easy to clean and stores nicely. I use a Cuisinart immersion blender almost every day and I absolutely love it!
