I was sitting here drinking this really good protein smoothie I just made, when I saw someone on another thread asking how to make protein shakes ... so I thought I'd share the recipe. Not that I really used a recipe. Anyway, it's really good.

I combined:

about 1 1/2 cups crushed ice
1 1/2 scoops whey protein powder
1/2 cup hot water with 1/4 pkg cherry jello mixed in (for flavor, and gelatin improves the texture)
about 2-3 tbsp black cherry juice concentrate
1/8 tsp ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
a couple squirts of fresh lime juice

Blended all this until it was pretty smooth and a little watery, then added:

about 2/3 cup lime sherbet

and blended until it was very smooth.

It tastes great!
Anyone else have recipes to share? I think this is my best shot of getting in some kind of decent nutrition right now.

High Protein Smoothie- great for vegetarians

1/2 cup yogurt

The wheat germ makes it taste nutty.

I do mine like this:

Juice (either orange or grapefruit are my favs)
1 cup of blueberries
frozen bannana chunks (sometimes)
scoop protein powder
yogurt (optional)

DELICIOUS!

Even though I hated What to Expect When You're Expecting, there was a recipe in it that I still LOVE.

1 cup milk
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
1 frozen banana (break it into pieces before freezing!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon to taste

It's delicious, even with no sweetener.

Uh-oh, now I want one...
