Pre-Workout Trail Mix Protein Shake

Provided By:

When you're going for a heavy workout, you need energy to be released at a steady pace over a long period. This smoothie contains slow-releasing carbs and protein, with plenty of natural sugars to release instant energy into the bloodstream.

Ingredients
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1 banana
1tsp cinnamon
1tbsp honey
125ml low-fat yoghurt
50ml skimmed milk
30g almonds
50g raisins
2 ice cubes

Directions
Blend the almonds in a food processor. Add raisins and blend until chopped, then banana, cinnamon, whey protein, honey, yoghurt and ice cubes. Blend until smooth.

Why you should have it
Honey is a carb-rich way to increase power, speed and endurance. It's also low GI, which means it will provide energy without a creating a sugar crash. Raisins contain fast-release carbs that let the body save fuel for later in the workout. Dried fruit is also a source of iron, which can delay fatigue. Bananas are low in fat and provide quick-release energy and cramp-busting potassium.

Almonds are full of protein and essential fats which assist in the production of testosterone and give a generous dose of the protein that feeds muscle and regulates digestion, ensuring a steady energy release. Cinnamon helps your cells absorb glucose better, which helps maintain energy levels. It also helps regulate appetite so you won't walk out of the gym feeling too peckish.

If you're after a pre-workout shake, you're probably in the market for a post-workout one too so try this chocolate and almond one . More muscle-boosting shakes in the mag too so subscribe and we'll hook you up with five issues for £5 .
