i would recommened buying a shaker cup, or even just using a cup with a lid that you can shake with. mixes quite smoother and i personally hate chunky texture. i enjoy drinking my optimum whey out of my shaker cup.

Of course it works, it's simple logic in the kitchen. i have been making these exact same milk shakes the last 6 months, i buy frozen fruit and berries and sometimes even make it a chocolate shake with banana and peanut butter. The frozen fruit is good for flavoring and add's a great source of vitamins.

Well you could just eat a whole foods source of protein instead of a shake.

Agreed. I put in 1/2 cup of oats. I also use 12oz skim milk instead of 8oz. Yes, this will get you big--I used to have one of these every day. Now I am on my cutting phase so if I ever have one of these it will be a lower portion and a meal replacement.

This is a really good protein shake, I use it often during the week. FYI, recently I started adding those little Via packs of instant coffee from Starbucks. If you like coffee and need a little afternoon jolt, this works great. I know it sounds strange, but somehow the peanutbutter, banana, chcolate, and coffee tast all come together.

Make it Vegan:

Substitute skim milk for almond milk (tastes a helluvalot better) or hemp milk (see below).
Substitute whey for hemp protein (is a complete protein with all essential amino acids).

I am :
------
Trying to gain weight and build muscle.
Gender = Male
Age = 32
Weight = 170 lbs
Height = 68 inches
I do zero exercise.

According to the BMR calculator I need "2125 Calories Per Day".

Can this shake be used as a complete meal replacement?

If it cannot be used as a meal replacement can you suggest a liquid meal replacement or how can I modify the recipe to be a complete liquid meal replacement ?

What is the effect of adding the oats to the recipe?

(The reason I focus on liquid meal replacement is that given my current work and living situation liquid meal replacements would just be easier to work and more convenient with.....for now)

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks for your response Steve, if I added oats to the shake how much oats would I add?

Also, what would the oats do as it relates to my goal of "trying to gain weight and build muscle"?

can you use any protein powder like Serious Mass Protein? because this Protein powder calls for 2 large scoops of it and milk.. can you just add these ingredients and provide more protein for bulking up?

Hi! I am 30 female, 112 pounds, 5ft, I've been working out for about 3 months. I am looking to get toned and get mucsle definition. I can only go to the gym 7pm-9pm I dont' like to eat that late, so I am trying to find a good protein shake (peanut butter taste preferably ;) that I can drink after the gym right before bed. also, that won't make me gain weight and will help re-build muscle. Please advise :) thx!

A quality casein protein powder mixed with light or skim milk will make a good before bed protein shake. It comes in all the same flavors as whey protein. Casein protein promotes a sustained anti-catabolic environment while you sleep. I would sustain from mixing in fruits or peanut butter right before bed.

I am a vegetarian and I am training for my tennis season. I want to build more muscle but I don't eat large quantities of food at once. Would you recommend more protein shakes or carbo loading for me to bulk up?

Don't buy whey protein isolates!!!! Also, don't mix with eggs as they will slow down the protein assimilation which is counterproductive to consuming after your workout.

Hi!
I do this for breakfast most of the days:
1 scoop of Aptonia Whey Protein Isolate Chocolate
1 Banana
125ml Almond Milk

and after training (I'm a dancer with classes Mon-Frid from 6pm to 10pm) I usually do this:
1 or 2 scoops of Myfusion Probiotic Series Whey Protein Strawberry
200ml water

I'm on a path of losing those last bits of fat and get definition. Oh and I'm 21, 5'3 and since this morning 112lbs.
What do you think? I would really like some advice and opinions please :)

I tried this shake with 2 scoops of chocolate peanut butter protein, 2% or 5% milk, tablespoon of cinnamon, tablespoon of peanut butter, 5 grams of micronized creatine in my blender or shaker cup with some ice, great drink after I workout.
