post-workout Papaya Protein Smoothie
During hard lockdown last year, I decided to finally start strength training. I have dumbbells that have been gathering dust in my cupboard, and I figured that hard lockdown was the best time to take up exercising and keep myself from going crazy. As a result, I had to up my protein intake after a workout. I am a pesceterian and I have always been concerned about getting enough protein every day, and now I needed even more.
Hello soy protein powder! I use this brand, and not only is it the cheapest powder I have found, it also has the most protein per 10g serving (8,4g per 10 g)
I started experimenting with different flavours, and I sort of made this one by accident. I didn’t have any bananas left, so I tried pawpaw instead. I really did not have high hopes for this tasting nice, but it was an unexpected delight.
