Post Weight Loss Surgery Protein Shake Recipes

  • 3 years ago

It's sometimes really hard but also really important to get enough protein post-op. Protein powder is one of the easiest ways but sometimes doesn't taste too good, so mixing it with other flavours is a good way of getting your daily protein.

What are your favourite protein shakes and how do you make them?

One of my faves is Chocolate Caramel flavour.

  • 4oz milk & 4oz water (milk can be soy, almond, skim, 1% or 2%)
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use Maximuscle)
  • 1 Tbls sugar free caramel syrup (I use Torani syrup)
  • 4 ice cubes

Put the liquid then protein powder in the blender. Blend for 30 seconds then add the syrup and ice cubes and blend until you get a smooth consistency.

I am a recovering bariatric patient and I can recommend for you one of our yummy Chocolate Nutrimeal shake, made with crushed ice and water in the blender - it's just like a delicious chocolate milkshake but contains heaps of yummy vitamins and minerals and tastes phenomenal! If you would like more info - please PM me.

These shakes are wonderful meal replacement shakes - low in calories - perfect blend of protein, certified low glycaemic carbs and good fat - but most of all they are totally delish!


Mint-Chocolate Protein Shake

1 Cup 1% Milk

1 scoop of Chocolate protein powder (I use Maxi Muscle)

A few drops of Peppermint flavouring or SF peppermint torani syrup

Couple of ice cubes

Whiz everything together in a blender, adding a few more drops of peppermint if you need it more minty and serve. For an extra special treat, add a squirt of fat free whipped cream to the top of your shake.

8 oz Hood Calorie Countdown/ or Skim Milk
1 scoop Click Mocha or Vanilla Mix
4 Ice Cubes

Mix the above together in blender. Top with FF whipped cream.....Yummy....low calorie 95/ high protein 18


Sounds yummy with the FF whipped cream!


Fruit-Yogurt Protein Shake

I buy fruit when it's in-season and freeze it so we have stuff available all year long. Here's a fruity one I like to do:

  • 3/4 cup frozen fruit (summer fruits, raspberries, etc)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup white grape or white cran juice
  • 1 tbsp wheat germ

Then blend, blend, blend! Add or subtract fruit juice and ice cubes to change the thickness. I also don't like "bits" in my smoothies so I sieve it when I'm done to get some of the seeds out.
