Well since shakes are one of the new big things in terms of dieting trends, I’m curious if you guys have any recipes that you personally use.

Mine right now, I got the idea from a magazine but spiced it up my own way:
1 scoop of Vanilla flavored Protein,I currently use Casein over Whey Protein Isolate cause I feel like I’m digesting it better
1 Banana
1 handful of Cheerios
1 handful of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Blend it well, you got a decent meal replacement for dieters or a protein supplement after your work outs for exercising folks and it tastes mighty good.
the exact protein I use http://www.optimumnutrition.com/products/natural-100-casein-p-267.html?zenid=b64bad46c64e91da18fc7da819b78c1c

1 Cup of Plain Low Fat Yogurt
1 Cup of frozen Blueberries
1 Cup of frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup of Mango Juice
1 Orange
1 Asian Pear

--------------------------

1 Cup Low Fat Milk
2 Scoops of Plain Any Whey Protein
2 Tablespoons of Nesquik Chocolate Powder
1 Banana
1 Cup Blueberries
1 Apple

Optional ---- 1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter

---------------------------

1 Cup Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt
1 Cup Orange Juice
1 Orange
1 Cup Mango Juice
1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1 Apple

---------------------------

1 Cup V8 Juice
1 Cup refrigerated cooked carrots
1 Cooked and later refrigerated sweet potato
1 Avocado
1 Juice of a lime

----------------------------

2 Greentea packets
1 Cup frozen blueberries
1 Cup orange Juice
5 Ice cubes

From a few experimentation with ingredients I found that Asian Pears give a really smooth consistency and texture to your shakes. Bananas adds thickness and a creamy flavor. Mango Juice tends to give an extra flavor and kick to a boring blend. Oh.... if you don’t want to use mango juice and opt for actual mangos, the best is those small yellow Jamaican mangoes.

cut up fruit/melon, usually 1/2 of a melon = 2 large glasses

add some honey, about 2 spoons

add milk or water, 1/2-way up the fruit line

put blender on full blast

-------

yeah---it may seem simple, but it’s really good.  i like using watermelon or cantaloupe

oh, and make sure the fruit is refrigerated before hand.

Discovered Jay Robb’s Whey Protein. Compared to the past whey protein powders I have tried this one is the best tasting overall.  A major plus is that it is not made for body builders so this means it doesn’t contain all those strange ingredients I can’t pronounce. Personal favorite is the PIna Colada. Yet kind of expensive though.
