This shake is very versatile and there are many things you can add to increase the calorie count such as an extra scoop of Blue Label Whey®, an extra serving of oats, 1 tbsp of coconut oil or 1 tbsp of flax mix, all of which will add an extra 100-170 calories to the shake.
Blue Label Whey® adds 28g of the highest quality whey protein per serving. This aids recovery and muscle growth. It will also help people to lose excess weight. BLW also contains probiotics for healthy gut activity.

Oats have a high fibre content and are known to help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that otherwise ends up in the bloodstream. They also contain antioxidant compounds called avenanthramides, these compounds contribute to anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative activity, providing additional protection against coronary heart disease and colon cancer.
Good quality almond butter is an excellent source of healthy fat and also contains key minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron and manganese.
