Natural 100% Casein With Almonds

ON's new Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein makes a quick, convenient and great-tasting natural micellar casein shake for anti-catabolic protein support between meals and before bed. It's instantized to mix up easily in a shaker cup or even with just a glass and spoon. But if you've got the time and want to thoroughly enjoy your shake, try using an electric blender. You'll be surprised at how rich and creamy it'll turn out.

Now let's kick your natural casein's nutrient profile up a notch. Since you've already got the blender plugged in and ready for action, let's add ˝ a cup of ground almonds to the mix. You can buy them that way or let your blender do the grinding. First, add 10 to 12 ounces of water to the blender, then pour in the half cup of almonds. Cover and blend on high speed followed by medium and then low. About 10 seconds for each setting. Now add a scoop of French Vanilla Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein and repeat that same blending cycle.

The Bigger Picture: A study recently published in the Journal of Nutrition underscored the antioxidant support that almonds provide. They can significantly decrease several biomarkers of oxidative stress, which can be elevated by intense exercise. Adding almonds also boosts the calcium, magnesium and Omega-3 content of your shake, while providing 6 grams of dietary fiber. Now that's one satisfying and nutritious meal.
