Protien Shake ... My specialty.
This forum makes me hungry ... Here is my breakfast 24/7/365.
My Simply Blueberry Protien Shake:
Grab a blender, 1/2cup measuring scoop & measing spoons. That's all you need. Add to the blender ... 2cups 1% or Non-Fat Milk (preferably non fat), 1/2cup Raw Oat Bran, 1/2Cup Blueberries,1 whole or 1/2 Banana, 2-4tsp extra virgin olive oil, & 1-2tsp cinnamon. DONE!
This shake, believe it or not, actually tastes fantastic!! If you let blend for a min or 2, it will have a smooth thick texture and the oat bran will not be noticed. A quicker or shorter blend will produce a bit of a grainy texture; which is still delicious. My nutrition teacher gave me this recipe, but she suggested using ice as well. I use frozen blueberries, so ice is not necessary. Besides, I think the ice is to make it more of a slurpy than a milk shake. I'm not fond of slurpies.
What's cool about this shake, as well as anything else you blend really, is that you can add anything you want to it (i.e., supps, vitamins, and/or different berries and fruit). It's essentially fool proof. There isn't anything you can do to screw it up.
I've been eating this shake for almost 5yrs to 6yrs now, literally every morning. First time users beware ... if your not used to high fiber foods you'll want to stay close to a restroom. Sudden bursts and bowl movements might be noticed during the first couple of weeks of consumption. lol, I still remember my first couple weeks. It really cleans you out, so to speak.

Thanks for the recipe. I will have to try this. I've been trying to find a blend that is nutritious and tasty. Looks like I've found what I was looking for.

Believe me when I say there isn't anything wrong with this shake ... its taste great, its nutritious, and loaded with cals. Perfect for the individual trying to gain a few pounds. As I've stated before, its a morning staple of mine. It's been my breakfast for the last 4yrs.
Try it ... then come talk to me about it.

My Nutrition teacher gave me this recipe (well one like it - I tweaked it) back in 2000. This lady was 70+ year old and didnt look a day older than 50. She looked great for her age.
The oat bran might turn a lot of people off, but once blended the shake brings on a smooth texture and is not at all gritty. Again, this has been my morning breakfast for the last few years. I love it!
I urge everyone to try it who hasn't already,

Hey similar to mine sprt..
3 eggs whole
1 cup milk
cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup oat bran
1-2 scoops chocolate whey
I love that shake.. the frozen blueberries make it really cold in the morning so it goes down easy.
Gonna give yours a go tomorrow.

12 oz liquid egg whites into a blender.....add a bananna...one scoop strawberry whey protein....tastes fantastic....tons of protein as well

i tried the original poster's shake today. 2.5 glasses of shake was a lot considering i'ver never taken any kind of protein shake before.
it did taste pretty good, just drink it quickly or the oil seems to rise to the top

I remember the days of liquid breakfast. I used to use a vanilla Myoplex Deluxe with 1/2 C of oats and 1 C of blueberries. Ahhh, those were the days...
03-24-2007, 03:21 AM
u think it would still taste as good if u add ON chocolate whey? or a different flavor would be better?

Ok what do you think about my hour and a half after workout meal... this is my second meal after my 50g protein/skim milk shake directly after work out.
1 tbls. natty pb
4 oz liquid egg product... maybe more
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 scoop of on whey
1/2 cup instant plain oats
16 oz of skim milk
blend for a minute and slam it down
Lots and lots of protein and carbs along with some good fat that brings the taste to a tolerable level along with the banana.

Here's my favorite:
- 2.5-3 cups of 2% milk
- 1 scoop of vanilla whey
- 1 cup of cottage cheese (small curd)
- 3.5-4 tblsp of peanut butter (smooth)
- 10-15 frozen blueberries
- 1 cup of vanilla bean ice cream
The only thing that changes is sometimes I will use frozen strawberries, and every now and again I throw in a banana. But usually I get a liquid taste of a mix between a Reese's/Twix. Everyone try it at least once! Sometimes it is a bit much for me to finish at one sitting depending on how hungry I am, so I'll save some fore a nice snack later on.

Holy crap!!!!! That WAY too much isn't it?!
I am trying to bulk up.. but keep my abs! LOL How can your body digest sooo many cals in one sitting and NOT put on "fat" weight?
Not to mention the carbs and fat...... It sounds GREAT! And i REALLY want to try it... BUT am worried about the high carbs and cals... (more the carbs... i GOT my abs by doin the low carb diet... and and WORRIED TO DEATH about losing them when i start trying to bulk back up now....)
Anyway it can be modified to make is around 500 cals.. maybe 600... and less carbs?

I've been making this shake for awhile now I've tried dumping a lot of diff things in there I love how you can't taste to much of what you mix in. If your really daring take the berries out and put tuna haha.
