Best Protein Shake Recipes

March 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 299

Making your own home-made protein shake is very easy and the procedure can also be really entertaining. There is a great variety of recipes to choose from. They are divided into two subcategories: The protein shakes that are based on protein powders in the form of a food supplement and the ones that are based in protein rich foods.

So, a good question would be what kind of protein shake recipes to search for. Although protein shakes based on protein rich foods are a great option, I would recommend the ones, which are based on actual protein powder.

Another question that might come up is why bother fixing a shake in the first place since we can get all the protein we need from an existing protein brand? Well, the answer is quite simple. Fixing your own protein shake gives you the opportunity to add the ingredients you desire and therefore have the taste you like best. Protein powders might have a large variety of tastes to offer, but sometimes we all need a new taste. Here are some easy to make protein shake recipes:

1) Whey Protein (Chocolate) Two Scoops Whey Protein Chocolate Ten oz low-fat skimmed milk Two tablespoons low-fat yogurt or low-fat ice cream One tablespoon instant coffee Ten ice cubes You mix all the ingredients into a shaker and your protein shake is ready!

2) Orange Shake Two scoops Whey Protein Vanilla Six to eight oz orange juiceNatural Sweetener Two or three strawberries One banana Five ice cubes

3) The Creatine Shake Two scoops Whey Protein Powder Vanilla or Chocolate One small tablespoon Creatine Mono-hydrateOne banana or two apples Five oz skimmed low-fat milk Five ice cubes

4) The Honey Shake Two scoops Vanilla Whey Protein One cup of water or banana juice Half a cup of low-fat yogurt Two tablespoons honey One spoon flax-seed oil This one will boost you with energy and I promise you its taste will drive you insane!

5) The Peanut Butter Shake Two scoops Chocolate Whey Protein One or two spoons peanut butter Ten oz low-fat milk Half a cup vanilla ice cream Five ice cubes

As you can see fixing a protein shake is pretty easy. All you need is a blender, imagination and of course common sense in order to avoid in taking too many calories. Also keep in mind that you should never use these shakes as a substitute to your normal supplementation.

Keep those muscles pumping!
