Quest protein powder, either chocolate or vanilla. Whatever frozen fruit I feel like at the time, strawberries with the chocolate, blueberries with the vanilla. A scoop of bountiful beets, and a big handful of greens.

Frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, plain Greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, chocolate protein powder, and super greens. Goes down like a strawberry chocolate milkshake, but so much healthier!

Homemade protein shake (with whey protein ISOLATE), with organic ingredients and NO added sugar/sweetener. It’s nutrition, not dessert. Made from scratch, by ME.

I use Natural Force Organic whey. I have 2 main shakes/smoothies. One is a chocolate "dessert" version, one is a "green" version. Both are easy meal replacements.

One is using chocolate whey, 1/2 frozen banana, a few ice cubes, chia seeds, peanut butter powder, a bit of plain unsweetened cocoa powder, a handful of greens, and sometimes 1/2 cup of berries (frozen or fresh).

My second version is plain whey, 1/2 frozen banana, chia seeds, handful of greens, a bit of lime juice, a piece of celery, maybe some cucumber, and then 1/2 cup frozen tropical blend fruits, or fresh - pineapple, mango, peaches, kiwi, avocado, or melon, etc.

EAS or Six-Star SOY (not whey) protein; vanilla flavor, in 8 oz. of soymilk with a cup of frozen blueberries or strawberries. They're getting harder to find, however; seems as though most retailers carry only whey protein, or only chocolate flavored, or brands that are 2-3x more expensive as my two choices.

I like the Tera's Whey bourbon vanilla powder. BUT I think its also good blended in a smoothie with a tbs or two of dutch cocoa (no sugar added) when I crave a bit more chocolate flavor. Sometimes I add frozen strawberries or frozen cherries to make it more fruity.

I have Publix Greenwise Vanilla Whey powder and it is okay. I mix 80 calories worth with 20 calories of almond milk.

The ready to drink Muscle Milk 100 calorie in both vanilla crème and chocolate is more convenient and tastes a little better, but costs more. The vanilla makes a really nice latte for breakfast. The Muscle Milk is a bargain compared to Jenny Craig's ready to drink shakes, although they are good, too.

I LOVE my shakes, they are my breakfast staple! I use ARBONNE Protein shake powder and make my own. The shake comes in vanilla and chocolate. I buy borth and make a "shake" mix of both vanilla, chocolate, cinammon, a little instant coffee (for a little "kick") and I, also, add some ARBONNE Extra Fiber supplement.

I pre-make my "mix" and store in big gallon ziploc bags. Each morning I add my two scoops of mix to my blender, add frozen bananas or strawberry's (or both) and mix in my blender with Almond milk. I am lactose intolerant and the ARBONNE powder is a pea-protein powder and the almond or cashew milk, keeps it lactose free. BTW, I can NOT get used to kale . . . just can't!

Just my routine and it works for me!!

My favorite shakes are super cold (lots of ice), creamy with fresh fruit (mangos or grapes, etc), two scoops of powdered egg white, 1/2 tsp of stevia for sweetness and experimental spice combinations including at times cinnamon, ginger and small amounts of turmeric. I never buy complete mixes but do occasionally use high protein powders made from rice protein and sometimes add ground flax.

What I really don’t like in my protein shakes is kale.... emoticon

HB has one of these (Premier Protein) for breakfast every day. He's in bed a lot of the day so it's high protein (30 g) and low calories. And already liquid, so no prep time.

I Love IdealShake with almond milk. Key lime, chocolate - they have so many flavors!

I like the Nutrisystem Turbo shakes. Have also used Whey powder shakes. I would rather chew than drink something, but the shakes work for a fast breakfast or late lunch when no time to cook. I like to have 15 g of protein. Since I am having trouble curbing night time snacking, I am going to try drinking a shake in the evening. Hope it works for me!

I also like the GNC Total Lean 25 shakes. I stick to ones that work well with coffee as the base so the vanilla, chocolate, and cookies and cream. I use my shaker cup with the hot coffee and it mixes very well.

GNC Lean Shake 25 POWDERS—Mango, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Banana flavors. In a blender with ice and water—awesome. Less so in a shaker cup, but pretty good. If I’m having multiples that day, I’ll just quick rinse my blender cup, and put it in the fridge for food safety, washing it thoroughly at day’s end.

I make my own. I use a dairy free protein powder (Orgain Organic Protein powder vanilla) as I am allergic to dairy. My fav is add frozen fruit, maybe a banana and a big handful of spinach or kale. Plus almond milk.

I don’t have these daily, but a few times a week.

we use unflavored, unsweetened whey protein (and occasionally add some huel).

our current faves:

cold brew + dates or maple syrup + cocoa powder

green tea + honey +/- strawberry or mango or mint

chai + honey

frozen berries + goji powder + honey

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

What are your favorite protein shakes? I must have chocolate, otherwise I will break down and gorge myself on chocolates. A good chocolate protein shake will curb my breaking down and making a pig of myself by satisfying that daily craving.
