Wow - I tried something new! :)

Let me start by saying I HATE HATE HATE shakes that I have to make because I am too busy. I like to open it and drink it. Period. I have been using Premier Protein shakes from Costco for 8 months now. I like them, but I'm bored. So, I tried something new. I have two months worth so even if I hated it I had to use it. lol I admit it was cool to use the little blender thingy I've had since before my surgery. :) To sum it up... it's no milkshake but it's good! I added half a carbmaster yogurt to make it creamy and yum! I added a handful of ice and about 8 oz of water, but it could have been more water. I didn't measure. By the end of the blending I had almost 20 oz. 150 calories from the shake, 30 from the half yogurt. 7 carbs and 27 grams of protein. I will have the same thing for lunch. I think tomorrow I will add Crystal light instead of pure water to really give it a punch.

Looks yummy! When I make my shakes, I use skim milk instead of water and I always add a frozen banana. When the bananas have turned brown, I cut them up and put them in a baggy and throw them in the freezer. They are perfect for shakes. I know it adds a extra calories but my shakes equal about 305 calories and that's with banana, strawberries, yogurt and the skim milk. Not bad for breakfast I don't think.

Keep up the good work.

I've been doing shakes for two weeks now.. and i'm learning to hate the blender too.. that's not good!

I did start mixing some of the yummy ones (like Pumpkin Spice) with hot water to make like a creamy warm drink and it's working pretty well.

This looks super yummy!

I have been having a shake every morning for breakfast (I beef mine up to reach 400 cals) but will have to give it a try. =)
