Bedtime Snack: Casein Protein Sludge
- 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.
