    Red face For those that miss milkshakes :)

    Or.. if you'd rather have this for breakfast and/or lunch - I threw together this recipe. Its YUMMY and very very filling. You can change the milk from 2% to skim or fat free - as well as you can change the yogurt as well if desired - it will change the nutritional content accordingly. Here is what I use:

    1 cup 2% milk

    3 oz Yoplait Light FF Yogurt *half the container* (any fruit blend will do but I prefer strawberry, peach or blueberry)

    1/2 of a banana (about 3 inches)

    1 scoop EAS Vanilla Iso Whey Protein Powder

    5 Ice cubes


    Put everything in your blender - and blend until smooth. I have a really great blender, so it makes it as creamy as a milkshake. If you want it thicker, add more icecubes

    It makes about 20 ounces as is listed and is very filling.

    I havent used any other protein powder other than EAS Vanilla (whey) so I dont know if any other flavor or brand will affect the taste, but even my son loves this and he's a very picky eater

    Nutritional Breakdown:

    Calories: 345 g

    Fat: 7.3 g

    Carbs: 34 g (all carbs, not net vs. gross)

    Protein: 34.4 g


    If you count Net carbs vs total overall - it would be 0 once deducting Protein from Carbs.

    I have made smoothies similar to this but mine turn out to need splenda. I have never eaten whey protein powder but I feel like I need to add it to my diet. Would this by any chance make it sweeter or no? I know splenda is not the worst thing but I would honestly like to drink it w/o adding it since I am not a big splenda user.

    Tntopo: If you get the vanilla EAS whey iso protein powder - it does make it a bit sweeter. However, using the yogurt, I find that along with the fruit it's pretty sweet. Not as sweet as say..a McD's milkshake, which is way too sweet for my taste, but..sweet enough.

    I cant have sugar substitutes very often, the exception is of course, my yogurts. I still use real sugar..just in moderation - just like I use real butter vs. margarine. The body cannot process the synthetics as it should - its very hard on a system, but it can process natural sugar and butter.
