What is a Protein 1st Phorm Shake?
A protein shake (or protein smoothie) is a protein drink that is usually consumed before and after exercise to help muscle recovery. Protein shakes are usually made from frozen fruit/ice, protein sources (such as protein powder) and liquids.
Are protein shakes good for you? The healthiest protein shakes are made in your own blender because you can control the ingredients. The goal here is low sugar + high protein, without any additives.
The benefits of protein shakes Protein shakes are an excellent drink to drink after exercise, which can help your muscles recover normally. In addition to after exercise, if protein shakes have enough calories or high-protein snacks, they can also be used as a pre-meal preparation.
A protein shake before or after exercise? We prefer to drink protein shakes after exercise, but some people say that they will provide the same benefits before and after exercise!

Easy 1st Phorm Shakee Recipes
Reminiscent of the days of countertop service and car shops, there is nothing better than a perfect milkshake. Fortunately, it is very easy to make one at home. This simple milkshake recipe provides you with the perfect milk to ice cream ratio and is fully customizable!
Can I do it in advance?
Surprisingly, yes! Mix the milkshake and pour it into a glass, then put it back in the refrigerator. Just let it sit for about 5 minutes and you can drink it again! This is a great party hack.
What is a good mix?
Oh, our favorite question! The mix is endless. You can add Oreos, Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Brownies, Biscuit Dough, Chocolate Syrup or Fruits. Anything you like is fine! Add peanut butter, bananas and chocolate chips to create a rich monkey atmosphere, or add caramel, coconut and chocolate chips to create a Samoan-like milkshake. Or go all out for a glass of red wine milkshake.
If you don't want your mixture to be completely mixed, such as chocolate cake or cookie dough, stir them after mixing ice cream and milk.
Can I make a milkshake without a blender?
Yes! And it is easier than you think! Add ice cream and milk to a large bowl, stir with a rubber spatula until the milk is mixed, then pour into the glass. simple!
How do I turn it into malt?
I like malts and think they are far superior to milkshakes (don't @me). You can turn milkshake into malt by adding 2 tablespoons of malt powder to ice cream and milk and mixing them thoroughly!
