Hi Guys,

Been reading on here and people are suggesting adding bananas, flax seed oil and eats to their shakes to get more cals.

I have strawberry flavoured whey and wondered if mixed with the above, would it still taste ok?

I was thinking, would the following taste ok?

2 x scoops strawberry protein shake
2 x raw eggs (is it ok to eat raw eggs?)
1 x large banana
2 x Table spoons of flax seed oil
Maybe some oats?
.... and milk

Thanks for any help

you may not taste the strawberryness of it as banana and other things will overpower it

Raw eggs isnt a good idea due to risk of food poisoning, biotion deficiency and bioavailability isnt as high if you cook them or buy them pasteurised

If i were you i would leave out the banana this will make sure it tastes more like strawberries (also a good trick is to add a few tsp of splenda to intensify the flavour). Careful on the flax oil as well as some brands ive tried are pretty powerful tasting (not nice)

try this

Strawberry whey 2 scoops
250ml Gold Top Milk or 1 pint of semi skimmed milk
120g dry oats
300g natural strawberry yogurt
1 teaspoon of flax oil

This provides slow and fast proteins and should provide the taste youre after as well. If you need to think it out then add some water to the mix

Edit i see youre a english lad, changed the recipe for the metrics amonghst us :D
