^^ Wow..LOL
May 1, 2013 4:07 PM
I put in unsweetened almond milk and 1 Tbs of sugar free pudding.......... it gives it a nice thick texture like a milkshake. I really like butterscotch and choc fudge. I had read something about doing that I think it was Body by Vi ...... someone was using their shakes and recommended it. I think it tastes good!

The huge list of recipes is certainly appreciated^^^

May 3, 2013 12:33 PM
BUMP What great ideas.

My fav this month = 2 cups Sunny D, 1 scoop Vanilla powder, and I vary frozen fruits such as strawberries, pineapple, blueberries.

Blueberries
Strawberries
Raspberries
Spinach

I don't eat any of the above any other way, and I rarely ever eat fruit (the only fruits I actually like by themselves are watermelon and mango). And fruit is good for you, especially berries, because they're full of antioxidants. Fortunately for me I can't taste any of them when I make my chocolate protein powder drink in the morning!
  41851487
May 3, 2013 12:37 PM
Wow! Thanks for all the ideas! I usually use Almond Milk, Silk Fruit and Protein or the Bolthouse Farms mixed smoothies.

I have the same shake blend every morning:

Alive pea protein which is fortified with all the vitamins and minerals you need for a day.

One quarter of a frozen bananas (just freeze the peeled ones after they start to get mushy).

1/2 a cup of blueberries since blueberries are a "superfood".

Crystal Light or if I'm very hungry, almond milk.

I have a little Hamilton Beach travel blender which I can blend in and drink straight from the little blender.
