Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Shake
My favorite go to recipe for indulging while trying to gain lean mass is my "Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Shake". If you like peanut butter, you will love this recipe. First off, go out right now and buy a couple pounds of bananas...the riper the better. Go on now...I will wait. Alright, now peel said bananas. Chop these delicious yellow fruits into sixths or eighths(you will discover what works best for you after your first shake) and throw them into a FREEZER ziploc bag(Freezer is important to prevent alot of freezer burn and losing flavor). Set them in the freezer and in a few hours you will have the makings of an amazing protein shake staple. Alright. The next staple in your new protein arsenal is coffee ice cubes...that is right...ice cubes made from coffee..not just any coffee however...try to make a double strength batch of coffee as it will lose some flavor from sitting in the freezer for extended periods. These things taste great in most basic protein shakes while keeping them chilled! As they melt they add more flavor and I have discovered if I want just a normal protein shake with dairy to take to the gym for after working out...I plop 4-6 of theses guys in and by the time I am done they will have mostly melted, the shake is still ice cold, and the shake now has a frappucino like flavor. Alright...on to the actual recipes mentioned above.
"Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Shake"
1 Medium(7-8") Sized Frozen Banana(Cut up into "Cubes")
2 scoops Chocolate protein
3 Tbsp Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 1/2 cup 2% Milk
3-5 ice cubes
1/2 cup dry oats
The key to a thick milkshake consistency is: 1. A good blender(like the ninja drink blender) and 2. Turning the frozen bananas into "dust" before adding other ingredients. First throw your bananas in and blend them until they are as mentioned above, a "powder" like consistency.(This helps ensure an even freezing of the milk and solidification of the fats....much like how an ice cream maker works) Throw in the ice cubes, peanut butter, protein powder, dry oats and add half of your milk on top. Pulse the blender or turn on for 5-7 seconds. Then add the rest of your milk and blend away. The end result should be a shake like consistency, usually if done right it has a thick consistency like softened ice cream. It is delicous and creamy and perfect for anyone looking to add in some extra protein and calories to supplement their hard work in the gym.
The Nutritional information is Impressive in many aspects-
Cal- 1190(Each pound of muscle is made up of 3500 calories...this puts a big dent in that caloric need)
Carb-102g with 10g Fiber(This recipe covers the whole range of carbohydrates with alot of complex carbs for sustained energy, assistance in shuttling of nutrients to the muscle via simple carbs, and 1/4 of the recommended intake of fiber which helps keep your digestive track working properly and provides a feeling of fullness)
Fat-44.5 g Fat with 30 g of Unsaturated Fats(I put the grams of unsaturated as some look at the fat content and shudder. Not all fats are bad, Unsaturated fats are in fat good for you, I said it, Fat can be good! The majority of the fat content is unsaturated which should put some at ease. Fat also has the highest caloric value of the macro nutrients, maintains a feeling of fullness, and makes things taste just oh-so-good)
Pro- 81g(It is argued that 1lb of muscle is 70% water and consist of 100-150 grams of protein. Again, huge dent in the needs of gaining muscle)
This is the best recipe because it has been broken down, tested, explained, is something I look forward to consuming, is a great meal replacement shake, perfect for after a hard workout, amazing taste, thick ice cream like consistency, and it is hard to not gaining mass when you start drinking this! Anyone who has tasted it, always asks for the recipe, and is amazed that it is a protein shake! I posted the ingredients in the order that provides the best results and typically the least sticking of protein and PB to the sides of the blender(although small amounts is inevitable). This recipe makes one deliciously large shake! It will satisfy a sweet tooth while making lean gains an absolute(unlike most sweets which give you bigger waist gains) Also this recipe is versatile. Things can be tweaked very easily, need more protein and calories without the fat? Add a cup of Plain Greek Yogurt. It nets you an additional 130 calories, 0g fat, 23g protein, and just 11g carbs. Add some honey or use 1 1/2 frozen banana for some extra carbs. The sky is the limit with this recipe! This recipe is phenomenal on it's own and I stick with this basic recipe as my go to shake! I find that I like to drink it after hard workouts 2-3x/week, although I would be lying if I said I wouldn't mind cosuming it for every meal! I don't eat for at least 2 hours before working out so this fills me up and provides me everything I need after my workouts. A friend of mine asked for the recipe and loved to drink it first thing in the morning for breakfast, needless to say he saw some quick gains.
This post for a recipe has turned into somewhat of a science lesson, but I love educating others, if this bored you, just try the recipe and skip the rest. If you want to gain some knowledge, I believe I left some good information for you above.
PS- Digestive enzymes are something to be considered when consuming large shakes like this. Especially hard gainers, most of you struggle to gain weight due to your body not being able to fully or properly digest nutrients. Adding this shake to your diet without the ability to digest it is like handing someone a dollar and hoping they give you back a return("A $10 would be nice")...not gonna happen. Help your body digest and process, and then add this shake, you will not believe what gains you can achieve, plus the enzymes help hard gainers slow their metabolism down somewhat as the body doesn't have to try so hard and burn calories trying to digest!

Any chance you guys are still looking for another tester? I figure I'm too late, but it doesn't hurt to put up an app :
How long have you been using protein supplements? Since 2006, so about 7 years.
Current fitness goals: Gain muscle while also staying relatively lean.
Training Style: Run 7 days/week, then go to the gym afterwards and train Back/Biceps on Mon., Chest./Tri. on Wed., and then back to Back/Bi. on Friday with leg exercises (but not too many since I like to run!).
Nutrition Style: I try to eat very little sugar and as much protein as I can. I'm not really worried about analyzing every little calorie since the running seems to keep me from getting too fat!
Are you over 18 years of age as of 3-15-13? Yes or No.
Will you be able to produce a detailed log (WITH a daily video or image) for each of the four (4) servings we will provide? Yes or No
Are you able to start ASAP? Yes or No
