Protein Smoothies represent a great alternative to the more commonly used protein shakes. This is because they are traditionally thicker in texture and so many people enjoy and savour them rather than immediately drink them after the gym, like you would with a post workout shake.
This is also why at TPW™ Towers we have a thinner, easier to drink whey protein shake for after the gym, but keep a pouch of Whey Protein Smoothie in the cupboard to take throughout the day. It’s the best of both worlds.
The short answer is yes, absolutely. From the thousands of shakes on the market, these are incredibly versatile. They can either be consumed on their own or combined with other products to make a hybrid protein formula to support any diet. For instance a lot of people tend to blend their Diet Whey Protein Smoothie with oats, berries or TPW™ Super Greens to create a nutrient dense shake that makes sure you’re hitting you’re getting enough vitamins, minerals and micronutrients in your diet. Especially important during periods of intense training or when cutting calories. This is also why we add bee pollen to most our smoothie formulas, heralded as the latest superfood by nutritionists it’s the proverbial cherry on top of what’s a great, healthy, nutrient dense supplement.
(Again) the short answer is yes, definitely. We often talk about this exact topic in detail on our live Facebook Feeds. This is because when strength-based athletes are looking to increase muscle mass they too often focus on creating a calorie surplus. Often snacking on calorie-dense foods that are lacking in vitamins and minerals. But studies show to increase muscle mass you must focus on your micronutrients as well as your calorie and macronutrient (protein, fats and carbohydrate) requirements. Which is exactly why our smoothie range can be so valuable when looking to bulk up.
Also it’s no secret the 100% natural flavours and colours that are used to make TPW™’s Protein Smoothies are considered the best in sports nutrition. In fact, here’s a little tip from the TPW™ community, if you mix our fruit-based ones and then leave them in the fridge for 30 minutes before you drink it they are unbelievable. So refreshing, you won’t have tasted anything like it. Finally, we love recipes at TPW™ Towers so please if you happen to create an unbelievable one take to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Google Plus and let us know. We’ll give it a share and spread the inspiration all over the TPW™ community.
Whey Protein Smoothie is another unique and exclusive innovation from TPW™. A nutrient packed high protein shake, supercharged with organic bee pollen and real natural fruit pieces to give you that true smoothie taste sensation.
