    How do you make your protein shake thicker?

    How do you make your protein shakes thicker without having to add extra calories like a real smoothie. Preferably no carbs or fat. Right now i'm only using 2 sccops of whey, water, and ice, and sometimes pb in a blender.

    Greek Yougurt

    I would suggest greek yougurt. It will give you a lot less carbs than a banana and some added protein. I think the macros are like 9-10g carbs 20-24g protein for a cup and 0g fat if you get the fat free. It is a little pricey though.

    **** gets thick quick. We use it at work. Use to much and it will clump together into little balls, but still be soft and dry powder on the inside.

    I have found it really depends on what type of protein your buying. ON really just stays as a liquid substance for the most part, however Nitro-Tech thickens up into about a frostee substance.

    Perfect Shake FTW:

    2 scoops whey, some vanilla extract, 1tsp cinnamon, 2 egg whites, 3 packets splenda and about 1/2-1cup ice, with 10oz water. Pop in blender or my favorite is THE MAGIC BULLET and rock and roll. Egg whites give it some fluff and give you some bonus protein that ya can't even taste!

    don't mean to deviate from the original post/thread...

    but, I have recently incorporated oats into my shake.

    My shake is as follows.... 2 scoops of Whey, Banana, Whole milk, Peanut Butter, and 2 servings of Oats. Now, it taste GREAT, tons of cals/carbs/protein, but the dadgum oats are scratchy.

    That is, I don't enjoy drinking the oats. Is there any trick to making the oats blend better so I cannot notice them? I didn't try cooking them yet, but... just wondering if anyone had some info on this.

    TIA.

    throw the oats in the blender first. keep them in there til they're ground into a powder, then add the other ingredients and blend again.

    Add egg beaters or any other kind of pasteurized egg product.
    Xanthan gum is also a great idea.

    It's probably been mentioned, but frozen fruit & milk help thicken up whey shakes. Some people add pudding mix also. If you like really thick protein shakes, check out Scivation whey. I found it to be obnoxiously thick (literally had to chew it when mixed with milk & banana), but you might enjoy that brand.

    Add some Liquid Egg whites, that should do the trick!
    Banana's, as mentioned above, will also thicken it up.
