Vegan Coconut Protein Shake

Whether you’re bulking or not, it’s a great idea to have a cheeky post-workout protein shake to speed up muscle repair. When you’ve had a strenuous workout in the gym, whether you’re benching 100kg or doing some light-weight-high-rep exercises, that burning or aching sensation you’re feeling is your muscle fibres being broken down. You want to help re-build and tone your muscles by providing them with a sufficient amount of amino acids or BCAA’s (Branch Chain Amino Acids) straight after a high-intensity workout with a refreshing protein shake.

But wait! What’s that? You’re vegan? Well, the good news is, there are a number of vegan protein powders on the market. So fear not young gym bunny, we got you covered with a simple blitz-in-the-blender recipe:

X1 Scoop Myprotein Vegan Blend powder

(Made from Pea Protein Isolate, Brown Rice Protein and Hemp Protein)

X1 Carton of Halo Coco Vanilla

Optional bulking extras:



Flax seed oil

Coconut pieces


If you’re a bit of a gym addict it’s important not to over-exercise. The muscle building and toning really happens when you’re resting. You wouldn’t skip leg day would you? So don’t skip rest day(s)!
