Whether you're trying to meet the demanding volume of macros required for muscle gain or looking for something healthy to eat when you don't have an appetite, our Strawberry Savior Shake has your back. It's quick, it's chock-full of what your body needs, and it tastes like strawberry ice cream!
Turn this into a "skinny" by skipping the flaxseed oil, which will knock off 120 calories and cut the fat down to just 6 grams. But the heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed oil may also support your ability to recover from exercise-induced inflammation, so it might be worth the extra macros even if you're trying to lose weight.
- Combine the water, flaxseed oil, yogurt, and strawberries in a blender until the strawberries are well blended.
- Blend in the protein powder and creatine.
- Pour into a frozen glass with a strawberry garnish.
