This is going to be a short and rather boring post. It’s how I make my protein shakes. It’s a very simple recipe, but it’s low in calories with all the benefits of other protein shakes I’ve made in the past.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 6 – 8 ounces unsweetened almond milk, original or vanilla – 30 calories per serving
- 1 serving of protein powder of choice – I like EAS Complete Protein, Vanilla 150 calories per serving
- 4 – 6 ounces water
- Blender Bottle, or something to mix/blend your shake together
- Optional: peanut butter, flax seed, oatmeal, banana, other add-ins if you prefer, but keep in mind these add more calories
That’s it. I add the almond milk and water into my Blender Bottle to around 10 – 12 ounces, add the protein powder and shake it up! Shake well and chill for a few minutes before enjoying. This is so simple and it’s around 180 calories, a great breakfast or quick meal throughout the day. If you want to add in some other ingredients for a bit of flavor go for it, but be easy on them. Sometimes I’ll add a tiny bit of peanut butter or a banana. I also know some people that add oatmeal into their shakes, but that’s not something I would prefer. Also, I really recommend getting a Blender Bottle – I love mine and I have two! It’s great for traveling too! Mine have loops on the tops so I clip a carabiner to it and attach it to my backpack when hiking or traveling. Careful about dropping it though, I’ve broken one this way.
So that’s it! Try out this recipe and enjoy. Use different protein powders. I really recommend almond milk for anyone cutting calories or fat since it’s basically low in everything compared to regular milk.
