And many others too.
When To Drink a 1000 Calorie Smoothie
The timing of drinking this high calorie smoothie does matter.
The best time to drink this smoothie is for breakfast. It will fill you up, and provide you with the benefits we listed above.
Because the smoothie is high calorie, you are starting the day with almost half of your daily calorie requirement.
This is great if you are trying to gain weight. You are likely to eat more throughout the rest of the day, which can lead you to eat more calories than you burn. That is a great way to gain weight.
Alternatively, if you are someone who works out, it can be a good idea to drink it 30 minutes before hitting the gym. This will give you the energy you need.
What Can I Put In My Smoothie To Gain Weight?
If you are wondering what to add to smoothies to increase calories – adding calories to your smoothies is easy. But here is a quick list of ingredients you can add to your smoothie to help you add more calories which can lead to weight gain:
- Nut Butters, such as Peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, etc.
- Whole Milk instead of low-fat versions.
- Full Fat Yogurt
- Protein Powders
- Seeds such as chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, etc.
- Nuts, like walnuts, almonds, pistachios, cashews, etc.
- Dried Fruit, such as dates, figs, raisins, and apricots.
- Honey/Maple Syrup
And that list goes on. Basically, the more ingredients you add (and quantity in some instances) the higher the number of calories the smoothie will be, which can lead to weight gain.
Can I Gain Weight Drinking Smoothies?
You can, but one smoothie won’t magically make you gain weight. What you need is an overall calorie intake for the whole day. You will need to burn fewer calories than you consume in order to gain weight.
However, weight gain smoothies can be an easy way to get a lot of calories in 1 drink. So, high-protein smoothies can definitely be used in your weight gain journey.
