Post Weight Loss Surgery Protein Shake Recipes
By Kirsty at RealSelf on 29 Jul 2011
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.
