- 2 scoops of vanilla whey/casein protein blend (we use Vanilla Cream SYNERGY-XP™ because, well, it's ours and it's the best)
- 16 oz. of whole milk
- 1 tablespoon of pistachio pudding mix (we use Jello® sugar- and fat-free pudding mix to keep the recipe as clean as possible, but feel free to add more calories via the regular variety)
- 66 grams (g) protein (absolute highest-quality)
- 30 g of carbohydrates
- 17 g of fat
You might wince at the sight of the dietary fat content (entirely from the whole milk), but let me be honest...
Not only has the "fat makes you fat" dogma been debunked by scientific research (and decades of empirical data), hard-gainers who are concerned about the fat content of a high-quality protein meal are losing the forest for the trees.
This brings to mind one of a few noteworthy internet quotes (who knows where it originated): "Abs on a skinny guy are like big tits on a fat chick...they don't count."
Political incorrectness aside, the wisdom is clear.
If you're a skinny guy wanting to gain lean mass, stop worrying about minutiae, and start eating lots of quality, high-protein foods.
"The Hulk" shake fits the bill perfectly.
Whole milk has been a bodybuilding/strength weight-gainer staple for decades, and for good reason: it works.
Add in 50 grams of the highest-grade muscle-building proteins money can buy (SYNERGY-XP™), and you've got the ultimate muscle-building protein shake.
Oh -- it's also delicious (I promise you'll be amazed)...and GREEN, like the Hulk. :)
