I just tried something this morning and it actually wasn’t too bad. I needed a lot of calories and a lot of protein and this breakfast did the trick.

I brought:
- a small tub of Plain Greek yogurt (contained about 2 serving)
- frozen blueberries and strawberries
- and a scoop of strawberry protein powder.

Ate the tub down a bit then stirred in the protein powder and actually could have stopped there with the protein mixed in because it wasn’t bad. Then poured in my frozen fruit and tasted even better.

Calorie: 440
Fat: 3
Carbs: 35
Protein: 64

Yeah I do this too, I just throw 1/2 cup oats in mine for carbs.

Try vanilla yogurt with chocolate whey... it's bomb.

Thanks for the link Irish. I skimmed through the initial post but once I saw the picture I was sold. This might come in handy on those days I am craving sweets.

If you head to the last few pages the recipes get very greek yogurt heavy. In the early pages its mostly protein/water/pb mixes. Enjoy!

O really didn't know ... What brand is that that has lower cal. Is the protein the same. I thought 14 was really good.

We can all sit around guessing for you... OR you could just try it.
