Bedtime Snack: Casein Protein Sludge

DSCN0698

  • 1 scoop of Chocolate Casein Protein (GNC)
  • 10 g powdered peanut butter (Costco)
  • ~1/2 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk (Grocery Store)
  • Sprinkle of stevia (optional)

Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and then slowly add milk while stirring.  You can get it to your desired consistency.  Less milk =more like cookie dough, more milk = chocolate pudding.

Why Casein at night? I am currently on a low calorie diet and trying to cut fat while maintaining my muscle mass. Casein protein is known to be a slow release type of protein and it should be taken before bedtime to avoid catabolic state during the night.
