Monster Smoothie… RAAARRR

Last post I mentioned I’ve started making monster smoothies for my pre-training breakfast. I can’t take credit at all for the recipe. I got the basics of it from family friends when I was first out of college. I was investigating the Zone diet and weight training for 3 hours a day. Oh, to be 22 again and be able to handle that!

Here’s the recipe:

2 cups orange juice
1 cup soymilk
1/4 block of extra firm tofu
1 scoop of protein powder
5-6 frozen strawberries
1 banana

In the past I’ve added extra supplements, like flaxmeal, etc. I have mixed up the fruit by using frozen berries of other types. It is a lot of calories, and that’s why I had stopped making it for a number of years. A local cafe makes a very similar smoothie and my husband recently had jaw surgery, and I’m hoping it can help his recovery while he is on a liquid diet. He’s also diabetic, so I’m using 50% sugar reduced orange juice to help reduce the overall sugar.

What I do know is the last 2 workouts with this smoothie 1 and a half hours before training, I have totally rocked it.
