Can you segregate the amounts of protein from each source? Assuming one can of tuna has approx 20g pf protein, could the remaining 32g actually come from peanut butter, honey, banana and milk?

In this recipe, the vast majority of the protein will be from tuna. Use a Large can of Tuna.

A standard can of tuna is around the 32g of protein mark, added to that you have got 10-11g of protein per glass (2 glasses) peanut butter around another 15g from that. So that's how it adds up.

Try this one 1 tub of low fat cottage cheese 1 banana half pint of 0.1% fat free milk put the cottage cheese into a siv and run water over it until you have only the chunks left reason for this is to get rid of the salt put all the ingredients into a blender with 4 ice cubes and blend on full power for 3 minutes makes a beautiful protein shake enjoy

I tried this shake for the first time the other day, blended great!.. Anyone know a replacement i could use for the peanut butter? I really don't like it, tried to get used to it in small amounts but just makes me feel sick..

I was thinking of just taking the peanut butter out and replacing that with just some other nut.. Almonds? Cashews?..

Imma replace the peanut butter with Nuetlla as i think it can add a little bit more calories, and because i dnt really like peanut butter that much, try it. gd luck :)

I am however sceptical about the calorie content, I have worked out the macros on my calorie calculator and according to that the calories are coming out at around the 850cal mark, rather than the mentioned 700. So be careful, the calories will varie significantly depending on brand etc.

Before a workout I would suggest, post workout fast digest protein would be more suitable, and in this recipe they are using milk, which is slow release, not exactly what you need after the gym.
