Recipes #1-Protein Shake Recipes

I just started getting bored with my protein shakes and found an interesting article from supplement warehouse that gave some ideas on how to "shake" things up with your protein shakes.

The Root Beer Float Shake
Just the other day Nikki and I went and bought a bottle of Diet A&W root beer. We added about 6-8 ounces of that to the blender along with about 4 ounces skim milk, ice cubes and one scoop of vanilla protein powder. If you are just post workout and want some simple carbs in the mix replace the milk with one scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt. There you have it ROOT BEER FLOAT SHAKES!

The Java Shake
Take your favorite protein powder (i use vanilla some days and chocolate on others) add either 6-10 ounces of coffee along with some ice. (basically just make it like you would your favorite coffee drink, but sugar free! I use the powder, ice, 2 sweet and low packets and a tablespoon of sugar free vanilla syrup). There you have it! Your protein shake, caffeine! and you don't have to go pay 5 dollars for it! Great for a morning pick me up!

More shake recipes to come. Like pumpkin pie shake and oatmeal raisin cookie shake!
