You may be wondering... What is Casein Protein?
I'm sure you have heard of Whey Protein, which is used immediately post-workout because it digests quickly to help you build muscle. Casein protein, however, digests SLOWLY, providing a slow-release amino stream for an 8 hour period. This means it can be used to help repair muscle and prevent muscle breakdown while you sleep for 8 hours. Therefore, the optimal time to take it would be before bed.
Another option is to mix it with whey protein (50/50) to create a powerful dual-function protein cocktail.

Serving Size: 1 Serving (With Cashew Butter)
Protein: 28.5 grams
Carbs: 11 grams
Fat: 13 grams
1 scoop of Bodybuilding.com 100 Caesin - Vanilla
1 TBSP of All Natural Cashew Butter (or All Natural Peanut Butter, PB2 or my favourite: P28 high protein white chocolate spread!)
1/3 to 1/2 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 tsp of Raw Cacao Nibs (or Chocolate Chips)
Add caesin into a mixing bowl. It's important to use casein protein rather than whey because casein is thicker and creamier.
Add 1 TBSP of all natural cashew butter (a healthy fat that promotes satiety!) or one of the other suggested spreads.
Pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or water) into the mixture. Do not over-saturate, or else the mixture will be runny!
You can either mix with a food processor (or by hand) until a dough-like consistency is achieved.
Add 1 tsp of Raw Cacao Nibs (mix these by hand into the dough) or use chocolate chips.
