    Talking Vegan protein shake

    Hi guys. I found this protein shake recipe online and I was wondering if it would be OK to double up the ingredients to get a higher protein out of the shake. I just don't know enough about nutrition to know if I'm getting too many fats or anything else so I thought I would list the ingredients and if you guys could help me out.

    Protein shake- ingredients

    1 ripe banana
    1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
    1/4 cup of oats
    2 tablespoons of nut butter
    2 tablespoons of Chia seeds
    2 cups almond milk
    2 tablespoons maple syrup

    So the idea is to double up these ingredients to get double the protein which would equal to 50g of protein. Would this be OK?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    Is it ok to eat protein fat and carbs? Yes. If it fits your macros, and tastes good (to you), then eat it. It's that simple.

    If you feel you can hit your macros in 2 meals, and it works for you, then by all means continue with what you're doing.
