Recipes for Whey Protein vary. I make a shake/smoothie including yogurt and 1/2 a banana to aide my nutritional needs. Play with ingredients to get your perfect treat.
I find that I am consistently low in protein, largely because I don't eat much red meat (not vegetarian, just its expensive and tends to be higher in fat). So I started supplementing with whey protein - I love it! I throw a scoop in with a 5 oz. glass of nonfat milk, and with the chocolate brand I bought, its only a 103 calorie snack that provides 11 grams of protein! I've also thrown in a scoop when I make sugar-free pudding.
I've eaten a high protein, low carb menu. I'm never hungry and that has been the key to my success! . 9
