Haven’t heard of protein sludge?
It’s only some of the tastiest, easiest to make, protein “food”.
It’s fun too, because you can mix and match the ingredients depending on your mood.
The foundation is just a scoop of protein powder, some peanut butter or almond butter, and a liquid (milk, almond milk, water, orange juice, etc).
Mix it all together with a spoon, and go to town!
I actually like to add a “crunchy” part to this formula. This will add even more calories, which is great if you’re trying to gain weight.
I prefer to use granola or cereal. Just slowly add it into the wet mixture, until you get the desired consistency.
Here are some recipes from around the Interwebz:
1. Sludge with Marc Lobliner
Here is the “creator” of Sludge, Marc Lobliner, way back in 2009. He likes using blueberries with his sludge, but I’ve never been a fan of that. At least not with chocolate protein powder.
2. Protein Candy Sludge
This recipe is not as healthy as others, since it has you adding in random candy bars and whatnot. But it’s still packed with protein, and delicious!
3. Basic Sludge
Pretty basic recipe for this one, but a good foundation.
4. Chocolate Almond Butter Sludge
This is going to be more of a “fudge-y” recipe, so check it out if you’re into that!
5. Strawberry Pop Shot Sludge
Sludge can be fruity too! Here’s a tasty strawberry version.
6. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding
We saved the best for last. Look at that pic! How could you not want to eat it!?
I love my sludge crunchy, and this recipe is amazing.
