Has anybody tried cream, or even, butter in a shake? I know butter wouldn't realyl mix well, but the caloir counts a similar per tablespoon, and I'm almost wondering if butter or cream would be cheaper than olive oil? May be stupid, but I'm curious.

the whol epoint of the olive oil is for the unsaturated fats. which butter lacks, while is rich in saturated fats, which most diets are already saturated in(pun intended).

If you can get away with using oil use it.

I never bring up an "Arnold did this", but here goes.

Arnold made his shakes with cream. I would imagine it being very thick, but hey, if you need the cals...

Your body needs the oil, the cream not so much I would assume.

I plan on sticking to olive oil, I was just curious. I remember reading a long time ago somebody's shake recipe had cream instead of oil in it.

what about coconut oil?.....I use it for cooking a lot. It's not cheap, but it's the best oil from what I can tell.

I was under the impression that coconut oil was very high in saturated fast as well. not that that's a bad thing for some people's diets, but for most, it is. and yeah i'd imagine that something like butter/cream/coconut oil would make a shake taste delicious :D

I always thought that fats of all sorts were fine for the body (in moderation) if they came from nuts/fruits/vegetables. Fats from processed foods are the ones I avoid. And yea, add a tbsp of coconut oil to a 20 oz smoothie and it bumps the flavor right up :thumbup:

I don't do cow dairy stuff. Goats milk yogurt is where it's at for smoothies & shakes.

Goat's milk yogurt
flax oil
raw free range chicken eggs
coconut oil
raw unheated honey
fresh fruit
your choice of supplement powder

Makes for killer smoothies

Yeah fats from natural sources are fine. You want to try and keep a ratio of about 1:1:1 of mono : poly : saturated.
