Whey Protein Shake Recipes
|Oct 26, 2008 12:40pm||
So I am trying out Whey Protein to help boost my protein levels. I love the energy it gives, but as most people have found out, it tastes horrible. I am received some good recommendations on some stuff to include. Everything from bananas and strawberries to flavored sherbet.
One of the ones I like is a chocolate and banana shake. Its best to eat this one in the morning for a boost of energy. It includes:
1 scoop of chocolate Whey protein
you can also add a serving of banana creme yogurt as well.
I look forward to hearing your favorites as well!

Nectar WPI (Fuzzy Navel) + Water
tastes like orange McDonald’s drink. 23 g protein only 90 calories…
perfect for those who need protein but want to limit calories from milk/fruit shakes.

i add Coke Zero (or Diet Coke) to mine.
Chocolate Whey + water to dissolve first, shake.
then top up with Diet Coke (Zero) slowly so it doesn’t foam over.
It ends up tasting like a chocolate ice cream spyder, probably not to everyones tastes but it works for me.

(amounts are approximate, I’m still perfecting the recipe)
1 cup yogurt
I’m considering adding a fiber supplement as well. Any suggestions?

My new fave (and I really do like this drink) ...
2 Scoops Designer Whey Protein – Chocolate
Toss it in a blender and it tastes like a chocolate mocha shake.

I posted this in the Hardgainers group. It’s meant for adding calories to your diet, so if you’re trying to cut weight, this probably isn’t for you. ~650 calories
I drink this twice a day. It’s cheap, easy, has lots of calories, and the macronutrient ratio is ideal for building muscle (50/30/20% calories from carbs/protein/fat).
1 cup rolled or one-minute oats
1 scoop whey protein (I use ON Gold 100% Extreme Milk Chocolate)
4-5 cubes of ice
1 cup of milk
Blend the oats into a fine powder first, then add the other ingredients and blend until everything is well-mixed and the ice is crushed up. That’s it.
Depending on the type of whey, the size of the banana, and the type of milk you use, this shake will contain ~650 to 750 calories. I drink one post-workout (morning) and another as a fourth or fifth meal in the afternoon.
At my current weight I consume ~3500 to 3700 calories a day, so about a third of my diet comes from these two shakes.
I recommend chocolate flavoured whey, mostly because I have never experimented with other flavors. The chocolate and banana combination is solid. Even people who aren’t into fitness/nutrition tell me that they like the shake.

So I tried the Cookie Monster. It was pretty good. Got a few experiments of my own I’m going to try. I’ll post any good ones I find.

I also use oats in my higher calorie shakes. One trick is to pulverize the oats in a coffee grinder until they have the consistency of flour. Mixes is much nicer with the shake. I blitz up a week’s worth of the oat powder at a time.
