T Nation

Rate my Shake

not sure how many people wake up and eat a shake and then a real breakfast on T-Nation but thats what i do and i figured i’d start a thread where everyone posts their “wake-up” shakes. Also i want someone to rate my shake A, B, C, D, F. Here is mine:

1/2 cup blueberries
35-40g whey protein
2 tbsp omega 3-6-9 oil
6g leucine
10g glutamine
10g creatine
1 banana
60-70g carbs (waxy maize)
16 oz fat free milk

i think after doing the math it comes out to approx. 1180 calories…

I wouldn’t bother to add waxy maize, I’d just use maltodextrin or dextrose. The whole point of waxy maize is that it’s low osmolality, when you combine it with all those other osmolites, it defeats the purpose.

Other than that it looks good.

great thanks… what kinda shake do you make? if any

I use a lot of protein with a little olive oil and heavy cream. I really like the way a pinch of Superfood makes a shake taste.

I don’t really have any special recipes. Just make shakes and eat them. Then eat food. Then eat shakes. Ad infitum.

Er… 6 oz water 1 scoop Metabolic Drive… drink, rinse, repeat.

I really like the idea of actually blending together a meal replacement shake. That’s something I’ve never done. I’ll have to grab me a blender, move the fuck out of this gay ass dorm room, and start making some sexy shakes.

That shake looks tasty DD.

i have one scoop Grow! Whey in 8 oz. water along with my regular breakfast

fruit yogurt (wild berries), peanut butter, milk, flax seeds

yes, I ate that shake, it’s kind of interesting to feel different tastes, eg. salty peanut butter and sweet yogurt with nutty flax seeds

1cup oats
2scoops whey
some psyllium husk
2 handful spinach
8-10 large strawberries
1 banana
.5-1 cup walnuts
sometimes grapejuice or blueberries

pretty damn good. replace walnuts with 3tbsp of pb and its even better.

1xxx cals

scoop whey
scoop casein
10g BCAA
Water

that is my breakfast along with 5 fishoil and a multi.

6 mint oreos
2 scoops mint choc. chip ice cream
16 oz whole milk
1 scoop russian bear 5000
1 digestive enzyme capsule

Pick yourself up a magic bullet, when it comes to making shakes it is the BOMB.
