Delicious Homemade Protein Shake



Recommended Posts

I am a hugely picky eater and have been having a really hard time with the ready to drink Protein Shakes. I am in my full liquids stage and I am also having problems drinking as much as I should. My mom was experimenting with some fresh strawberries (I love fresh fruit!) and came up with this Protein rich shake:

1/2 container strawberry yogurt (3g protein)

1 container strawberry Greek yogurt (12-15g protein depending on brand)

1/2 cup of milk (2-3g protein)

10 strawberries

1/2 bottle of vanilla Pure Protein shake (10g protien)

3-4 tablespoons of fresh squeezed orange juice

Blend together. Add more milk or orange juice to make it thinner.

Mine is pretty thick but as I'm on liquids only right now, it's also pretty filling. But finally something with a good amount of protein that doesn't make me gag! The Pure Protein Drink gives it the slightest hint of vanilla and I don't have the nasty protein taste! Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I am!

Finally made a Protein Shake I really enjoy!! In a blender put 6-8 ounces of skim milk two Splenda packets a couple of drops of vanilla extract some ice cubes and one scoop of chocolate Pure Protein whey powder. You can purchase the Pure Protein in a 2 lb. tub for 19.99 at Walmart. Blend on liquiefy and it makes the BEST chocolate protein shake. I tried it in a shaker before and I couldn't stand the smell!! My new way in the blender is like a Frosty from Wendy's!! I am 4 days postoperative and now pain free,good luck everyone!!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
