View Full Version : Frozen Protein shakes :)

So got some teeth pulled a couple days ago, and i'm having no trouble consuming regular foods, but i've been making some shakes with ice cubes for a delicious frozen treat and i was wondering if anyone had any lower cal ideas on variations of shakes i can make. I say lower cal just becuase i make a lot of them a day to help with swelling and such.

The shake i make now is delicious, and very simple... 1 scoop optimum 100% whey double chocolate with about 2 oz. skim milk, 5-6 ice cubes, and about a tablespoon of splenda.

About 140 cals, yet very filling and feels so good to the mouth.

Anyone else make frozen stuff like this? I mean it tastes as good to me as ice cream, i'd love to try something else. Maybe adding some almonds or PB? Don't want many carbs in these guys

Thanks :)

let me try and get this strait do you want them low calorie or low carb ? because PB will not make them low calorie (tho they will be good)

a rich high protein/ mid carb low fat mix I like is 1 cup milk, 1 cup nofat greek style yogurt, 1/2 cup crushed pinnapple, 1 scoop whey (vanilla flavoring and spenda depending on how strong the whey's flavor is) frozen or just chilled. it has a sweet, creamy, tangy flavor.

also apples go well in sakes (really sweetens it up and works with about any fruit combo too)

add some xantham gum to your shake, about 1tsp-1tbsp. it will make your shake thicker, and less liquidy so it feels like a milkshake. should add some varitey to your shakes

Lower carb, meaning i won't be adding oats or anything like that, but healthy fats i actually lack. I just put lower cal becuase i'm not looking for something that going to be like 800 calories since i want to be able to have several of them a day :) Basically looking for high protein/med fat/low carb

And where do you get xantham gum? Does it effect flavor?
