We've been asked many times over the years for a protein shake recipe if you don't have any protein powder. This shake gives you 30 grams of protein, a relatively small 364 calories and enough sugar to speed recovery after a vigorous workout. It's saltier tasting than our other shakes and yes, you can taste the tuna fish. But it's definitely more flavorful than a can of raw tuna and it goes down much easier.
Our tasting panel was divided, with four liking it and three not. Normally something with that kind of vote would fail, but we felt it provided an option for people who couldn't get or afford protein powder.
1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix, about 1 to 2 minutes, until thoroughly combined.
