I know, it's very tragic, very sad.   Sad

I'm partial to chocolate protein shakes... we've been out of chocolate lately, and I have been using strawberry and I hate it.   Tongue

The BEAST has a recipe for a protein shake involving protein powder (one scoop), egg whites (about 1/2 cup, I think), and ice...I haven't tried it yet, but she said that it tastes just like a Frosty. 

I could use some good, low fat/low sugar recipes for protein shakes, if anyone has them. 
I tried a cup of coffee in my chocolate protein shake once the other day...it's not bad.

My husband used to do that.  I don't like it.  Too thick!   Tongue

You gotta try freezing your leftover coffee in ice cube trays and blending it with the chocolate or vanilla protein powder too, that can be pretty awesome.

PB is good in shakes it also gives you the proper fats needed to digest the protein fully.  Also slows down the protein, liquid whey proteins have a tendency to move very quickly through your digestive system not allowing the protein to be fully absorbed.

OK I need to hear more about using egg whites in protein shakes.  I have to admit, I am a little sketched out by the thought of ingesting eggs in their raw form - whites or yolks.  I never do it.   Tongue

The Beast says egg whites in protein shakes are awesome, and alot of recipes call for it.  She used Lana's egg whites... I am not up for ordering a big tub of Lana's egg whites, so I am wondering if All Whites (from the grocery store) will work?  Or just use real eggs and separate them?  Protein shakes seem to run right through me and do nothing for my hunger, so I am thinking that maybe replacing some of the protein powder with egg whites would help.

yes the egg whites work,,and sometimes at some markets they have eggology egg whites, the same one's Bob Chic endorses. Here's my thing, if you add protein mix and egg whites to your shake, are you adding to much protein to the shakes for the body to handle? Can't the body only absorb so much protein at one time and the rest goes to fat. I put 2 scoops of protein powder AND like half a cup of egg whites from the market,,it actually tasted thicker and alot more like a real milkshake. Oh I also added some skim milk. The egg whites and or skim milk obsiovsly makes the shake thicker and gives it a tad more taste than of course just protein powder/water and ice.

Well I would have to balance it out to make sure the shake is still just the number of grams of protein I am supposed to have for each meal.  I do think there is a limit on how much protein the body can absorb in one meal (40-50g, maybe?), but I'm not sure how much of the rest is stored as fat versus how much is just processed by the kidneys and excreted.  That probably depends on your overall calorie intake.
 
So I'll have to do less powder if I add the egg whites.  But that's fine with me if it satisfies my hunger better.  I SWEAR, sometimes I have a protein shake (all I can have right now is the powder and water, no milk), and it's like I just drank a big glass of water.  I'm hungry like 10 minutes afterwards.   Angry

Same with me also about being hungry 10 mins later,, I am not a expert but the egg whites did make it better tasting and thicker like a milkshake. Let me know how it comes out for you. Also maybe instead of the egg whites, you could substitute the water for skim milk, it may make the shake thicker and creamier and more filling, if u arent comfortable using egg whites. Use a straw to drink.

No skim milk in my shakes during contest prep, lactose is a no-no for me.  I already know it's good, though, because I make my shakes with skim all the time during the off-season.

I'll give the egg whites a go... I'll suck it up and stop being such a wussy.  I'll probably be posting in here within the next week about how I have become addicted to egg white shakes and have replaced three meals a day with them.  Grin

OK I conquered my fear of raw egg whites last night.  They are actually pasteurized...

I did one scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1 cup All Whites, some ice, and a splash of water.  It was really good, definitely better than just powder and water, and better because it's less powder anyway.  It didn't do much more for my hunger though... I wanted another one about 10 minutes after the first one.   Angry

LOL...sorry it didn't do more for your hunger, I am glad it came out good for you. Maybe in the offseason, you can try some of those other shakes, I love those recipes, and I want a partner in crime. Grin

When I have a little more time, I will take the recipes out of this thread and start a Protein Shake thread.  I think we need one for recipes.   Grin
