If you freeze your banana in chunks it will make the shake less runny. As a matter of fact, any frozen fruit will make it more like a shake and less like a drink.

I blogged about my favorite protein shake recipe here: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

I usually do fruit, yogurt, flax seed and maybe some vanilla protein powder or peanut butter.

When I use protein powder the one I like is GNC 100% Whey.

Personally, for me, all chocolate sucks! Now that I have that off of my chest, this is how I make my large protein based shake...

1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup liquid egg whites (from egg whites international)
1 scoop of Gaspari vanilla protein - will tell you why further down
1 handful of fresh spinach
1 cup of berries (fresh - preferable) - frozen in a pinch
add ice if not using frozen berries
All in blender and smoothie/milkshake - about 30 oz

1. Gaspari's protein tastes fantastic in my opinion... even the chocolate. I like all their flavors. An when I am in a hurry, I mix it with a hand shaker and just egg whites and milk - or just water.

2. YOU CAN NOT TASTE THE SPINACH - I swear!

3. A 3rd trick - by using vanilla - you can make it ANY flavor you want. Buy the coffee creamers like FF Caramel, or Chocolate swirl or Eggnog at Christmas, put in 1-2 tbsp and your shake now has that flavor!!!! No kidding.

4. Protein for this shake is upwards of 50g - adding more scoops of protein powder can be done also.

5. I also put in BCCA and Glutamine powders for recovery.

6. You can use banana's instead of berries... the riper the banana the sweeter the shake

Hope that helps.

I'm looking for the elusive good tasting shake with high protein.

I went in to Max Muscle and threw this scenario at them. They countered with the store brand of chocolate. It tasted like medicine.

I currently like the cheapo from Nutrishop, but I'm almost out of that. I want to increase the amount of protein I am eating and need the supplement, but don't want to retch every time I drink one.

Preference of chocolate so I can mix it with bananas and peanut butter to make a pseudo-milkshake.

Any suggestions?

If we only did things to make ourselves weigh less, we wouldn’t necessarily be healthier.
