I know that bodyscience drinks it with orange juice, I bought orange juice 100% pure orange from Tropicana and actually it has tons of sugar. :))) 22g.
ok. I would like to know how everybody makes their own protein shakes. Any ideas?
Oh. Another question, do you have to drink another protein shake after your workout?? it is like 2 servings a day... is that only with weight lifting or with cardio as well?
i find that the more crap i throw into it, the worse it usually tastes (like the protein powder isn't enough to ruin perfectly good ice cream). one exception to that is my oatmeal cookie flavoried ice cream smoothie. i don't do it often b/c i don't tolerate fiber very well, but i cook some oatmeal (before the workout) - not quite to completion, al dente if you will but still cooked (it would come to about a small breakfast bowl's worth), and throw it in with the vanilla ice cream + protein powder (3-6 scoops, depends how much i'm willing to ruin the taste), add about 3 teaspoons of cinnamon (i know, it sounds like a lot), a bit of nutmeg, about a tablespoon of molasses (uh, don't actually use a spoon to measure it if you try this at home - you'll never get it from the spoon to the blender!), about 3/4 cup's worth of crushed walnuts, and, if i think my stomach will take it, some pieces of apple (only a few - gotta chop them beforehand). i should mention that this is a smoothie that basically has to be eaten with a spoon, not a straw. i still think it tastes better plain but the extra crap is extra nutrition + calories = muscle.
the best thing i've found to do with protein powder is add it to russian pancakes (like crepes but a bit spongier); i can add it to dry cake recipes, but i once tried to put just the tiniest bit in the lava cakes i was making, and it totally ruined them.
Hope it's useful and saves some money...
1 scoop of vanilla w/ 1/4 cup fozen blueberries and 8 oz or water
or 1 scoop of vanilla, 8 oz water, w/ 1/4 cup of canned pumpkin with a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1 packet of slenda
or 1 scoop of chocolate, 8 oz water, 1/2 fozen banana!
I guess milk could be substituted for water if you want a creamier version! :)
31 grams of protein
and very yummy!
2 scoops GNC vanilla whey protein @ 20g protein a scoop
I whip the 2 together in a blender so its nice and frothy and pour it over ice...it is just like a iced coffee but I am getting my protein as well...so delish!!!
I put 1.5 scoops of whey in 16 oz of cold water from my gym's water cooler into my shaker cup, as soon as I'm ready to leave the gym.
30g whey protein powder - 1 tbsp
1 tbsp beanut butter
carrot shavings - from 1 small carrot
I think the coffee with the protein powder tastes great....its just like powdered creamer! I guess you could just mix the 2 but I like my shake nice and smooth so I blend it...it would either way though:--)
- 8oz of fat free lactose free milk ( = 8gms of protein)
- 1/2 a scoop of Vanilla Spiru-tein Whey protein powder ( = 7gms of protein)
- 1 scoop of Banana Spiru-tein soy protein powder ( = 14gms of protein)
- About a cup of frozen chopped mango
Then I eat it with a spoon over a minimum of 15 minutes.
2 scoops whey protein (double chocolate) GNC ON Whey Protein
8 oz skim milk
1 Tbspn ground flax seed
4 Tbspn Walden Farms calorie free chocolate syrup
1 cup raspberries or strawberries or 1 banana
3 cups crushed ice...
Fills my entire blender and me! I have it every night after my workout...
I am wondering if I can just have a smoothie as a meal replacement? has any one done before? Maybe it could be a pre-workout morning meal??
can you buy flax seeds at the health store?
when boiled it thickens like an egg white.
adding ice cream, peanut butter, fresh fruit, oatmeal or cookies seems odd to me. fresh fruit is better fresh, ice cream and peanut butter? the fat really defeats the purpose i think, but to each their own i suppose.
i love protein shakes and sometimes make enough for my neice to have a little too ~
2 scoops (14 grams protein) vanilla soy protein
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
