Just picked up a new 450 wat 10 speed 56oz blender for $20....
I came from a smaller one and I'm just looking for different ideas on what to mix in there

In a response to this and your other one about ice cream, i used to have a terrible tasting protein *cough* *** brand *cough* yea i was young and stupid. But to make it taste better i made shakes completely disregarding health i bought frozen bags of mixed berries, some fruit juice and strawberry sherbet mixed it all togethor in a blender tasted amazing. During the time i was just getting into lifting and don't remember how it affected me but it tasted damn good.
If your bulking i wouldn't mind adding some ice cream to shakes just look at the labels pick the right ones.

Peanut butter, honey, yogurt, oats, just about anything! I like vanilla protein, PB, honey, and ice with water mixed! That's my shake of choice! Every once in a while I add a banana!!

This is what I have every morning.
The Myfitnesspal APP tells me this is 1039 calories, 17g fat, 98g protein, 131g carbs
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of extra thick rolled oats
- 2 tbsp whole flax seeds
- 1 cup greek nonfat yogurt
- 1/2 cup raw egg whites (Pasteurized in the carton)
- 2 scoops Muscletech economy protein (vanilla)
- 2 cups skim milk
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
I just do variations on this, before the above, I used to do pomegranate juice instead of milk, and isopure flavorless protein instead of the muscle tech stuff, just mix and match, etc etc...

Fitness pal has an option to make your own recipes, in this function you can scan the bar code of foods and it will load all nutritional value in and you just pick the correct serving size. It's a pretty cool feature.Originally Posted by AaronJP1

Walmart has bags of frozen strawberries and rasberries. Nothing added to them, just the fruites. I use them instead of ice for strawberry flavored proteins.

1 cup of frozen strawberries (unsweetened)
Splash of lime juice
1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese (or vanilla yogurt~however, I encourage you to try cottage cheese- it balances the sweet/salty flavors and it tastes great, not to mention, it’s high in protein!)
... 1 tbs of sweetener of choice (OR to taste~use less if using diet soda that is already sweetened)
8-10 ice cubes (may use less/more depending on desired consistency)
1/2-3/4 cup lime flavored sparkling water (or diet 7 up) (more or less depending on desired consistency)
1-2 Scoops of Muscle Gauge Nutrition Vanilla Pure Whey Isolate
*Optional: 2 tbs Cool Whip to make creamier, Lime or strawberry to garnish, Pinch of guar or xanthan gum to thicken,
1.Place the strawberries, lime juice, cottage cheese (or yogurt), and sweetener in blender. Note: If using Cool Whip add it to the blender during this step!
2.Add the ice, followed by the sparkling water (or diet soda). Blend until smooth.
3.Pour into a large glass, garnish with whip cream or a wedge of lime.
