My Favorite Smoothie for Protein
Buy 100% protein powder, 25 gm/scoop (In choc. or vanilla, I buy it at Target)
In blender place the basics:
8-10 oz water
scoop of protein powder
4 or more ice cubes
Then add whatever;
ff lo-cal instant pudding, 1-2 TBS or more, your flavor choice
&/or fruit
Or add black coffee for an iced coffee
If you like it sweeter add Splenda
I made a vanilla apricot smoothie today - yum!

Thanks I will have to stop at GNC. I haven't been there for a while, I might find some other goodies too.
Also, thanks, Lynn, your recipe sounds great too. I love chocolate!

I get mine from GNC but Walmart does have some protein, they don't mix very well though.

I'm sorry, now I look back and see that you were looking for a drink with vanilla pudding. I don't see why you couldn't just substitute the vanilla for the chocolate in the recipe I just posted. Its worth a try.

Chocolate Shake (this was from W.Watchers)
1 cup milk
2 TBPS sugar free chocolate pudding mix
2 TBPS cool whip free
about 8 ice cubes
Blend. I've also made this with tsp. instant coffee added.

That's not the same one, but it sounds good. Do you buy protein powder at the grocery store? I haven't tried any. I should though, my protein is almost always low.
Thank you!

I have a protein shake recipe that uses pudding mix, is this similar?

1 1/2 cups ice
1 1/2 cups water (or use half water half milk)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Isopure Creamy Vanilla but you could use any kind you like)
1-2 tablespoons sugar free fat free pudding mix, any flavor
2-4 tablespoons fat free half and half
Davinci sugar free flavored syrup (optional)

Blend everything together in a blender until smooth and pour into glasses, makes 1 very large shake. Add more ice if you like it chunky. Can also use add-ins such as berries, low fat/sugar free cookies etc, just depends on what kind of shake you're making. You're only limited by the type of pudding you use. The sugar free syrup is used as a sweetener and is optional, you can get the same effect from splenda but Divinci/Torani syrups are flavored.

Yes, and I searched the message boards, but that must only search the titles.

I have not heard or seen it. Have you typed in a google search for it?

I saw a smoothie recipe on one of the message boards (either a recipe board or the diet & nutrition) that used french vanilla instant pudding mix (1/4 box) as one of the ingredients and now I can't find it. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I should have written it down, it sounded good, but I can't remember what the other ingredients were. Thanks for any help you can give, thanks! Linda
