    Several months ago my BF started making a protein shake and drinking it regularly. He's really gotten lean and his muscles look fantastic.

    1 scoop of powdered protein
    2 tablespoons peanut butter
    3-4 ice cubes
    1/2 cup milk
    1 banana broken into pieces

    Blend all of the ingredients together until the ice is completely crushed. The shakes are somewhat filling and taste great!

    Yep that would do the trick! I miss using my kick-ass blender because I don't have anywhere to use it right now, but it's the kind that does ice etc and I used to make something similar.

    I'll have to invest in a good blender one of these days. I like fruit smoothies, but they can be a little too pricey to buy frequently from places like Jamba Juice.

    The only expensive thing in these shakes really is the protein, but that large bag will make these things for probably over six months. Oh, and vanilla protein makes much better shakes than chocolate.

    Another suggestion if you are into making smoothies, is buy the pre-prepared frozen fruit - you can get all sorts now, mango, pineapple, cherries etc - and bung some of that in there.

    8 oz. plain soymilk
    2 scoops/servings Chocolate Whey Protein
    1 Tbsp Strawberry Preserves
    3 ice cubes
    Blend to death.

    I love me a post-gym and/or breakfast smoothie, especially in the warmer weather.

    My base recipe consists of 250mL reduced fat milk + 3 scoops of Musashi P30 Vanilla Protein.
    To that, I'll then add either

    frozen banana + peanut butter,
    frozen mango,
    frozen berries, or
    mushed up stone fruit (apricots or nectarines)

    I highly recommend using frozen fruit.. and if you don't have a fancy shmancy blender, you could try a good quality bar mix. They're cheaper,and I find that they do just as good a job.
