Gingerbread Casein Works Overtime

Continuing yesterday's storyline about adding a taste of holiday spice to your sports nutrition, today's shake comes on strong with slowly digesting protein complemented by the potential for natural muscle pain relief. You're sure to appreciate how it goes down like a thick, creamy peanut butter gingerbread cookie.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Gingerbread Casein
Pour 10 ounces of cold water into a shaker cup, and add one scoop of Chocolate Peanut Butter Gold Standard 100% Casein. Follow that up with ¾ teaspoon of ground cinnamon and ¾ teaspoon of ground ginger. Close and agitate until creamy. This shake works best for between meals and before bed protein support.

The Bigger Picture: Along with 10 grams of essential amino acids from 24 grams of slowly digesting micellar casein, the cinnamon can help with thermogenesis and there are those who think the anti-inflammatory powers of ginger can play a role in relieving muscle soreness. In any event, the shake tastes great and the micellar casein's ideal for supporting nighttime muscle recovery. Check out OptimumSmoothie.com for more clean eating holiday recipes.
