More Info on Shakes?

Hey all-

Im currently on a mass gain diet and need around 3000-3500 calories a day. (150lbs, ~20%BF, 5’9)

I am 17, so i am still in school. And the school food sucks and is expensive, so i am thinking of making some protein shakes at home and bring them to school to eat. Problem is i haven’t made any tasty protein shakes before. I know there are probably lots of forums on here, anyone care to link me up? thanks!!

A shake that is around 30g protein, 40g carbs is ideal. Anyone know any good ingredients to get that amount?

Protein being the obvious ingredient, some fruit, yogurt, oats, nuts, natty PB. Precision nutrition and Gourmet nutrition has a few recipes for shakes.

scoop of protein, a banana, full cream milk, cream

my shake is approx 1000-1100 cals and TONS of protein and is delicious.

In a blender:

4 ice cubes
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 banana
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 shot of olive oil
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
1 scoop Biotest Superfood

thanks! i’m looking around the site for any good shakes.

At 20%BF make sure most the mass you’re gaining is lean mass.

Lift hard.
