I just made a Nitrean shake for breakfast...

1 cup oats
1 banana
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1-1.5 cups skim milk
1 scoop Chocolate Nitrean protein powder

and the secret ingredient...

about 1 tsp cinnamon.

Holy hell, this was the best protein shake I've ever had. The macros were good (somewhere around 700-800 calories, if I did my mental math correctly) and the cinnamon was a GREAT touch with the chocolate, oddly enough. I know what's on the plate (blender?) for tomorrow! :thumbup:

This does sound good, so I went on Fitday and calculated it.

Thanks. I gotta find a way to grind up the oats though cause I never used em before and tried just mixing it with a blender and it was like trying to drink tar.

Actually, I kinda like the thicker texture - I don't grind the oats fine beforehand, but I've seen some members here say that they put the oats into the blender first and grind them into a fine oat-powder before adding the remaining ingredients.

Oh, as another touch, use a frozen banana for the shake (just cut it up the night before in a zip-lock bag in the freezer for ease of blending) and it's quite smooth and cold.

That's what I do. I've heard a coffee grinder works very well too. You have to be prepared to drink it pretty quick because the oats tend to settle.
