How to make the protein shake

  1. Chop up the strawberries and bananas:

    Using a knife, chop the strawberries and bananas into small 1cm cubes. This will make it easier and faster to blend. If you opt for frozen strawberries, you can put them in a plastic food bag and smash them with a rolling pin.

  2. Combine the oats and Kefir milk:

    Put both the oats and Kefir milk into your blender and allow the oats to soften while you prep the rest of your shake.

  3. Crush up the ice:

    Get a plastic food bag and fill this up with your ice. Use a rolling pin to crush the ice.

  4. Combine all of the ingredients:

    Put all of the ingredients into your blender, at this point, you should have an idea of the size of the portion - if it doesn't seem like enough you can add more strawberries and milk.

  5. Mix it all up!

    Blend the shake until it's at a smooth creamy consistency. Pour it into your favourite cup and enjoy!

How does protein help your muscles in recovery?

After intense exercise, muscle fibres undergo microscopic damage and need repair. Protein consumption provides the necessary amino acids to facilitate this repair process, promoting muscle recovery and growth.
