Vegan Protein Shakes



Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm just starting my bariatric journey with an informational seminar and an appointment to see the surgeon. I have been vegan (98%) for two years. I'd like to know if I can home make Protein Shakes with tofu, Peanut Butter, soy milk, etc., instead of buying powders with nasty ingredients and nasty flavors. Unless someone knows of an actually great-tasting vegan Protein Shake to stock up on? Thanks!

Hi! Been vegan for 13 years, glad to see another one on the board! We have a good handful of vegan or plant-based people here. I personally despise Protein Shakes, so it was a real struggle for me to have them at all (I only needed to have them for 2 weeks, thank goodness). I used organic hemp Protein and macadamia milk and it was okay, I could choke it down. When I tried it with almond milk there was no way in hell it was going down, so disgusting! I finally broke down and got some premade shakes. The best ones I could find that weren't pure sugar Water were the vegan Orgain shakes. Svelte brand is okay too. Give them a try, if you like protein shakes in general you'll probably like those!

I was vegetarian for 3 years, and always made my own Protein Shakes with Orgain Organic Protein Powder.

2 scoops of Orgain chocolate Protein powder (150 cals, 21g protein, 5g Fiber, 5g net carbs)

1Tbsp of PBFit Peanut Butter Powder (25 cals, 3g protein, 2g fiber, 2g net carbs)

2Tbsp Hemp Seeds (114 cals, 7g protein, 2g fiber, 0g net carbs)

1Tbsp ground Flax Seeds (37 cals, 1g protein, 2g fiber, 0g net carbs)

2 cups of Unsweetened Almond Milk (60 cals, 2g protein, 0g fiber, 2g net carbs)

1 medium frozen banana (105 cals, 1g protein, 3g fiber, 24g net carbs)

1 cup frozen spinach (45 cals, 6g protein, 4g fiber, 2g net carbs)

Ice and Water to desired consistency

Macros: (536 cals, 41g protein, 18g fiber, 35g net carbs)

This makes approximately 32-40 ounces depending on amount of ice and water added, so if you broke this up to 2 shakes, 268 cals, 20.5g protein, 9g fiber, 17.5g net carbs.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
