How to make a chocolate almond butter cup protein shake

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you a healthy nighttime snack for muscle building to feed your late night cravings.

But first, I was planning on showing you a healthy and delicious homemade protein bar recipe, but the one I made only fulfilled one of those promises.

Protein bar recipe fail

We won’t play you like that.

So I’m going to go back in the lab and try to create a freakingly delicious protein bar recipe.

If you have a go-to protein bar recipe that you love, and is paleo-friendly, go DM me the recipe on Instagram @BradGouthro as I’d love to try it, and potentially share it on this blog.

Moving on.

Regardless if your goal is muscle building or weight loss, most of us have late night cravings.

The 3 best nutrients to fill you up

One of the best nutrient combinations to fill you up, and achieve your goals is:

Sure you could have a canned tuna and an avocado, but I’m sure at night you’d probably prefer a chocolate almond butter cup.

Am I right?

If you’re nodding your head, you’re going to love this delicious healthy nighttime snack for muscle building.

I love using Rootz Nutrition Paleo Protein because they make a super high quality protein powder that is egg protein based.

This is easily digestible for me.

Since I was taking a whey protein isolate for over 10 years, I started to build an intolerance for it.

I noticed I was bloating more and getting gas more often from whey protein powder (sorry Jess).

Based on this, I decided to take some time off from whey and switch to an egg protein powder.

Once I did, the bloat and gas pretty much went away.

Plus, this delicious chocolate banana nut flavor contains only super healthy, natural ingredients.

I bet you won’t find these ingredients in your protein powder:

  • stevia
  • chia seeds
  • flax seeds
  • maca root
  • bee pollen
  • acai
  • goji berries
  • blueberries
  • spirulina
  • chlorella
  • kale
  • spinach
  • broccoli

In other words, this is not your typical junk and chemical filled protein powder.

Plus it has 4 grams of fiber per serving!
