View Full Version : protein shake recipe without protein powder

Alright......my parents used to be against anything like whey protein, or creatine, or anything like that at all. If it wasn't from natural food, then I couldn't have it. Well anyway, they finally gave in, and they realize that I know more about nutrition and stuff like this than they do, so I can buy and take what I want. I'm smart about it though. Anyway......before I could use the powders and stuff, I looked for hours and hours for a decent recipe for something that could be eaten relatively fast but with a high amount of protein. No one online could give me anything. So I went to a yardsale and got a book by Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was a really old one. He made it when he was still only a 6 time mr. olympia. Anyway.......I read the diet section a bunch of times (along with the rest of the book) and he gave a recipe for a protein shake. It doesn't take any powders or anything like that, so that's a plus for people who either can't take those things, or don't have the money to, or whatever. It doesn't taste that bad either. here it is...

2 glasses of milk (any kind of milk, and a decent sized glass)
1/2 cup of non-fat powder milk
1/2 cup of ice cream
1 egg (I use jumbo size)

Throw all that in a blender and blend it up and enjoy

The amount of milk you use can make a difference. So my protein intake and yours may differ a little. Also depending on the ice cream, and the brand of powder milk. For me, I got about 50 grams of protein going in mine. Even though I can take the whey protein and stuff now, it's still good to go oldschool, and be natural. They don't taste bad at all, and they have quite a bit of protein for being natural and easy to consume in 5 mins or less. Just thought i'd share that. I found that it works great, and hopefully you'll feel the same.

sounds a little more like a weight gainer shake.

if you are looking for a good quality protein supplement and can order over the internet....At large's Nitrean, advertised around the site, as well as Optimum Nutrition's 100% whey are both good quality proteins....

Skim Milk blended with dry milk is a great weight gainer: I used to blend 3 cups of skim with 1 cup of dry, chocolate syrup and 4 tsps PB. About 1000 cals, 70 g protein, and good as hell, though ice cream would probably make it even better.

Of course, that was when I was bulking to 265 and eating 6000 cals a day. I don't think 6000 cals a day would be good on a bulk now, particularly since my metabolism has slowed with age. (just a little at 27)

I could never drink that much milk at a time. The lactose would leave my mouth all sticky and I would get really congested.

1 cup cottage cheese
1 tbsp Natty PB
1 cup skim milk
Half package sugar-free, fat-free vanilla pudding mix
Blend with 1 cup cold water + 12 ice cubes. Eat with spoon like vanilla ice-cream.
Best before bed. (also can add 2 tbsp wheat bran for fiber, don't even notice it in there.)
