Proteing shake Issues!



Recommended Posts

i have issues with getting the right consistancy in my Protein Shakes. When I use Unjury and try and add yogurt or frozen fruit...my shake ends up entirely too thick.

I also bought the BSN Lean Desert Protein Powder--Chocolate Coconut and It is so thick i can hardly drink it... i mix it with soy milk in the blender on the liquid option and it gets so thick and bubbly I can't even drink it... people talk about adding yogurt and fruit to their shakes...but it has never worked for me. What am I doing wrong!?

I have been skipping the yogurt for mine and they don't get as thick. I have Unjury choc splendor and mix that with 8oz of skim milk. It bubbles up but it will settle after a few minutes. In the cafeteria where I work they will make smoothies for you and they will put my Protein into them so I use the BA vanilla protein with 8oz of milk, some banana and blueberries, it gets thicker than the unjury but not too too bad.

I make the BSN with Water. It's not thick at all. I have a little mini blender that only does up to 12 oz so maybe it doesn't whip it as hard to make so many bubbles. It was cheap at Walmart.< /p>

I make all my Protein drinks with Water.< /p>

I don't use yogurt, but at times I add ice, and I mix all my shakes with skim milk

not a fan of all the air and froth, so i just use a strainer to strain my drinks. the air bubbles will get caught in the strainer or will just go away/liquify. you can also try letting your shakes sit in the fridge to settle. but because i'm always on the run i use a strainer

Try making it ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge for about an hour blenders add a lot of air in the shake which really irritated my sleeve early on. I used Unjury and skin milk.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
