Gingerbread ModernSLUDGE

October 22, 2015


Who of us have made protein sludge? Now who has made a protein sludge to convince themselves it was a real dessert? Alright Gepetto, sure you can add Golden Grahams, crumbled Poptarts , and Jelly Beans into an otherwise mundane “Gains Goo”.. I need a better word for that…. but you can also create an actual treat that one doesn’t need any gimmicks, and won’t break your “calorie bank”.  So for our fans we labored in our kitchen, sweat dripping from our brow to do sludge, deliciously.  Check out this seasonal behemoth, a bulker’s delight – GingerBread ModernSLUDGE.




  • Two Tablespoons of Peanut Butter (you can substitute almond butter if you’d prefer it)
  • 2 Scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream ModernPROTEIN
  • Water




In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter (or Almond butter) and Vanilla Ice Cream ModernPROTEIN together. Then start adding a little water to the mixture, mix, and add more water until your desired consistency is reached.
