hey again Mates

I had another question. What is a good blend of friuts, additives, etc. that makes a tasty, but effective, shake/smoothie. I have access to most any normal ingredients, and I use ProLab and GNC protein powder. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'd prefer something with like berries/banannas/etc. whateva tastes good, and worx :-)

Thanx again

8oz water
1.5-2 scoops of your fave powder.
4 oz lowfat milk
one banana
5 grams glutamine powder
one tablespoon natty pb
5-6 ice cubes

Chuck it into blender in that order. Blend until ice is crushed. Cream.

Hey this was posted by Mac a short time back......

Anyways here is something I have been using,
2 cups tropical fruit juice(all natty)
40 grms carbs
2 5 ounce bannanas
60 odd carbs
200 grms frozen berries
24 grms
2 scoops whey
34 grms(Designer Whey)
Falx oil:2 tble spoons (Omega 3&6 Blend)
30 grms
Total Cals:
Total Cals:902 cals
Keep the flax out if your using the smoothie for a postworkout shake.
To throw off the flax flavor which is barely detectable I would throw in some cyrstal light(kiwi bannana etc...)

Compared to a N Large ya can't beat the freshness and feeling of a cold friut smoothie.

12 oz crushed ice

16 oz milk

1-2 tbs natty peanut butter

1/3- 2/3 cup oats

1 scoop chocolate designer protein

Gonna go make one right now, this is my year round shake, I adjust the type of milk, and amount of oats and pb accordingly. I may add some glutamine when cutting...

Try beercans first. I think that would be the best and I would like to hear what it tastes like.

I'm gonna be away for a few days, but I plan on firing one of Beercan's shakes up as ssoon as I get back, I'll let ya know waht its like. I'm actually gonna make every one of the recipies on different days anf try em all out I think!!

I'll post my experience with all of em, as well as experiences and recipies that I pick up at the gym next week

Beercan's shake is similar to my first meal everyday. Main difference is its not a shake. I cook my oatmeal.

I normally cook 2/3 cup of oatmeal with 1 tbsp peanut butter + 1/2 tsp Cocoa Mix. Once its done cooking I pour in bowl and add 1 scp chocolate protein and put on a dab of milk. Its awesome tasting and depending on portion size, is great for bulking or cutting.

Thanks alot for your help!! :-)

I tried BeerCan's, it tastes great, and goes down fairly well. Actually, i even felt pretty full after drinking a glass (about 600ml) of the stuff.

I also came across another idea for a recipe, and I really like the taste. Its a bit different tasting, but its definitely not unpleasant.

3/4 cup frozen fruit (melon, peches, berries, etc.)
1 tbps natty PB
2 scoops vanilla whey (I used ProLab, but whateva)
2 cups orange juice

Its a bit different, and might be a good alternative fro some ppl that are sick of the asme old taste.

Anyway, thanks again

Another variation of BeerCans shake could be to use vanilla whey and 1 tbsp of cocoa. I jsut ran outta chocolate whey, and thought I'd try this variation out, and its delicious!!!!

Just thought I'd keep you posted


PS. Thanx alot for all your help, its very much appreciated :-)
