    cheap bulking shake!


    Ok so for Christmas my gf bought me the body fortress protein from Walmart. I've used that brand of protein before, and ended giving the tub away. Anyway I decided I'd go on a quick bulk, and get rid of the tub by making my own weight gainer. No joke I love the taste of my new shake!

    2 scoops body fortress (cookies and cream)
    1-1/2 cups of un cooked oats
    2tbs skippy natural peanut butter
    And however much milk you want mixed in.

    Its got a really pleasant smooth taste, but it is chuncky due to the oats. It doesn't really bother me. If u would rather have it smoother, blend the oats, and protein until its powdered.

    Just thought I'd give u a heads up! Its dirt cheap and taste great. Tell me what you think!

    I use about 3 cups of whole milk with it so it comes to about 1200 calories.

    Without milk its 780 calories.

    I did that this morning without the oats but with half of a banana. Love it. I never new you could add peanut butter in the shake.
    I'll do this until I get tired of it from now on.

    That's some pretty ghetto protein powder bro but as I say, protein is protein. I've been using 4 scoops of up ur mass, 2 scoops of ABB xxl mass gainer, both vanilla, and 2 handfuls of strawberries with 16 oz of milk. About 1200 calories and drink that twice a day. Think it would taste bad with pb?

    Yeah I hate the protein by itself, but this recipe really makes it tasty! The peanut butter tastes good mixed with my vanilla zero impact protein, so it should be alright. Try throwing a raw egg or two in it. Makes it creamy adds protein + calories, and it tastes pretty good.

    I'm gonna have to try that^^^

    Another good one for vanilla protein is.. 1cup kefir milk wich is like liquid yogurt. Desired milk. 1 scoop vanilla protein. With fresh fruit of your choice. I really enjoy peaches and will sweeten to my liking with agave nectar!

    I have been using a similar shake for my bulks for about 2 years
    2 scoops protein
    2-3 cups milk
    1 cup ground oats
    1 banana
    2-3 eggs
    3tbps natural peanut butter

    Another was
    1-2 cups greek yogurt
    2 scoops protein
    1 cup milk
    and fresh fruit and berries
    You can add ice to make it more of a morning smoothie too

    an uncooked egg has 1/2 the amount of protein as a cooked egg (i read that somewhere on here and a website)....might as well add another scoop of protein or half scoop

    Same amount of protein, your body just absorbs more of the cooked rather than the raw. Ill still use raw eggs because I can easily just throw eggs into a shake and be on the go.

    not sure if anybody tried but butermilk 2% makes shakes taste better adleast in my opinion. (No i would not drink buttermilk by itself) what I dont like with mixing milk is that it becomes foamy butermilk seams to make it less foamy. Give it a try

    I do two scoops of whey strawberry 3 cups of buttermilk and banana
