The 3 Minute Breakfast Protein Shake for Hockey Players

number one protein shake for hockey playersBefore I get to breakfast talk, I have to send out a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Insider’s List members Lauren and Jeannette, who both won their respective divisions at the USA Hockey Nationals.  Lauren backstopped her team to a triple overtime victory!  Awesome, awesome job you two – I wish I could have been there to see it and thanks a million for letting me know.  I love hearing about your victories!

Okay – on to the topic at hand….If I had a dollar for every time I had a hockey player tell me that the reason they did not eat breakfast was because they are ‘not hungry’ in the morning, I would literally have tens of dollars (okay, maybe not as much as you were expecting).  And I must admit, I struggle to see how any athlete could sacrifice the return on their hard work in the gym by not taking 3-minutes to prepare breakfast.

So today I am going to share a breakfast protein shake for hockey players – and us regular people too.  In fact it is a carbohydrate and protein shake with lots of fibre, it tastes good and it takes less than 3-minutes to prepare.  I have it pretty much every morning before heading to work.  Yes, even the mornings when I get up at 4:30am – I still have this for breakfast.

Basically, you will use 1/3 plain yogurt (do not get the fat free) + a scoop of protein or protein & carbohydrate powder (I use the Vega brand) + frozen berries or fruit + top it up with orange juice + Magic Bullet Blender = YUM YUM Goodness!  Enjoy.

So there you go – now you have no excuse not to eat breakfast.  Have a great day.
