No fruit, but if you add whey to the shake it will.

Berries+whey+Milk/yogurt is good.

what exactly is whey, its in powder form right?

fruit/fruit drinks will not usually have that much protein (0-5g tops) unless they add it in. say at jamba juice you can get a whey protein boost i think it's like 10g whey for 50cents or the free 5g soy protein boost. a lot of the "healthy" drinks that have protein in it usually stick some soy in there to get protein up to 10-15g. you are better off getting protein from other sources, although eating some fruit is not bad at all

I occasionally have a banana shake with optimum nutrition's vanilla ice cream flavored whey.

Whey is a protein found in dairy products. It is basically refined from milk into a powder form. Then you can add it to food to up the protein content.

Technically a berry, but probably not what you meant.

thanks, the naked protien zone shakes have 30 grams of protien but it has soy and they are expensive. should i spend my money on protein shakes not using soy instead?

I use Nitrean, and absolutely love it. I've tried all sorts, but Nitrean seems to mix better, and it tastes awesome.. I always get the Chocolate..

try it and see if you like it.

I'm pretty sure avocados are high in fat, not protein?

Yeah. They're high in good fats not protein. Shoul have probably read the link before you posted it eh...

Nutritional value (Copied from Wikipedia)

A whole medium avocado contains approximately 21 grams of fat, though most of it is monounsaturated fat. Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K.[16] They have the highest fiber content of any fruit - including 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fiber.[17]

I was really just trying to show an option as to my knowledge no fruit is "high" in protein.

Plus I think its kinda funny that they are even a fruit.. in my mind they aren't "fruity" // guess I should have been more clear.
