Weight Gain: 6 Homemade Protein Shakes To Add On Some Kilos

Most of us think weight loss is the most challenging task anyone can take. But the reality is gaining weight is equally difficult as losing it. Being underweight leads to many problems like malnutrition, lower immunity and decreased muscle strength. Gaining weight is also important to boost your energy levels. Nowadays, it’s a trend to become massy and flaunt abs, biceps, triceps etc. 

Diet plays a very crucial role in the weight gain journey. Just consuming junk food with high calories won't help you in achieving your desired goal. Rather it will cause other problems like heart disease and diabetes. Your meals should contain whole and nutritious foods like rice, milk, nuts, potatoes, fish, eggs and cereals. Protein shakes are another healthy addition to your daily diet which can contribute to weight gain.  

Here are six homemade protein shakes that can help you in gaining a healthy weight: 

Chocolate Protein Shake

This is a delicious way to add some extra kilos to your body. Made with bananas, milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and peanut butter, this drink contains approximately 30 grams of protein. Prepared within no time, you can also add some ice cubes to enjoy chilled chocolate protein shake. 

Banana Protein Shake

Eating bananas is the simplest way to gain healthy weight. So, why not transform this yummy fruit into a high protein shake by combining it with milk, honey, oatmeal and dates. The best time to have a weight gain drink is with your breakfast but it can also be consumed pre or post workout.
