    Hey guys, I've been having this natural protein shake with all natural ingredients. I was finding that the protein I was buying had too many artificial flavors and colors. Let me know what you think.

    Alpha13 saidYou need to catch up on your old school notions of endless cardio and low fat diets.

    No one suggested endless cardio and low fat diets. Were you watching something else?

    One of the virtues of smoothies you prepare at home is having total control over your macros because you can choose distinct sources of fats, carbs and protein to suit your needs and adapt the quantities of each as you evolve.

    Not so much when you use mixed-bags like skimmed milk (56% carb 39% protein) and yogurt (55% carb 44% protein) -- these are not good sources of protein if you are controlling your macros.

    You want to increase your protein with yogurt and milk? Sorry, you will also be increasing your carb intake significantly.

    You can use unsweetened unflavored whey isolate which is a much purer source of protein, will not alter the flavor of your smoothie and is just as "natural" as your skimmed milk and yogurt.

    If you want to thicken it to be more like a milkshake, you can slice up a banana, freeze it then throw it in the blender with the rest of the ingredients. mmmm...potassium ;)

    I doubt the OP's protein is disappointing.

    • ice
    • 1 tblspn apple cider vinegar
    • (sometimes) 1/3 pint pasteurized 100% liquid egg whites
    • 1 dollop of 2% Greek yogurt
    • ½ scoop domestic (flavored w/bcaas or unflavored) whey protein isolate
    • ½ scoop flavored hydrolyzed beef protein isolate w/bcaas
    • 1 frozen banana
    • (sometimes) frozen blueberries
    • (in season) fresh raw whole cranberries
    • (sometimes) 1 ladle unsweetened natural applesauce
    • 1 slice fresh ginger
    • 1 tspn pomegranate powder
    • 1 tspn goji powder
    • 1 tspn acai powder
    • 1 tspn cacoa powder
    • (sometimes) 1 tspn goldenberry powder
    • (usually) 1 tspn maca powder
    • (sometimes) 1 tspn green coffee powder
    • at least two fresh organic greens from this list:
    - watercress
    - kale
    - spinach
    - collard greens
    - broccoli
    - dandelion
    - swiss chard
    - (sometimes) ¼ avocado
    • ½-1 cooked cup steel cut oatmeal rolled with the following additional ingredients:
    - ½ tspn raw unsweetened shaved coconut
    - 1 tspn raw unsalted almonds
    - 1 tspn flaxseed meal
    - 1 tspn hemp seed
    - 1 tspn chia seed
    - 1 tspn raw cacoa nibs
    - 1 tspn raw dehydrated pomegranate nibs
    - (sometimes) mulberries

    - (sometimes) raw whole goldenberries


    Though with a kitchen like that in NYC the OP must be doing something right.

    I make the best fricken spam protein drinks right here in the good ole USA!!!
    Free samples too......

    I am the CEO of Protein central......icon_idea.gif

    P.S.
    Darling, dairy is bad for you. To much lactose (converts to sugar). Maybe try goats milk.....actually higher in protein and lactose free. Also, take a little more time and add some penis butter (peanut butter lol) Pump it up and you have a better drink!!!
