Are you looking for a healthy way to make shakes and satisfy your sweet tooth? Well, you are among a growing number of people who are looking for nutritious ways to make shakes. People everywhere want to have some easy healthy recipes that keep their energy going and they don’t want that ‘sugar’ drop. This is why I wrote this article about what to use to make your shake at home.
Why are Healthy Shakes so popular?
There are many reasons why. Foremost is the nutrition. And people wanting to lose weight in a healthy manner. Protein shakes fill you up and sustain your energy for a longer period of time than something from a fast food place. Those shakes are very high in sugar and calories and very low in nutrition. You want to look for a protein powder that is high in protein, but not more than 35-40 grams per serving, and low in calories, meaning not too much sugar. Protein helps you build lean muscle while the empty sugar calories help you build fat.
What do I need to make a Great Shake?
First step is to find either a blender or a shaker cup. Once you’ve decided on a protein powder, you add that to your container. The next step is the fun step. You add your favorite flavorings to customize your shake. You can make it very simple or very exotic.
The liquid can be water, milk, almond milk, rice milk, depending on your preference and your tastes. Adding flavorings comes next; vanilla is a good choice for most shakes. If you are looking for a fruit experience you can add coconut, lemon, strawberry extracts to your shake. You get the idea. Have fun cruising the isle in the grocery store that has different extracts.
If you’re going for the tropical shake, you can add anywhere from ½ to 1 cup of your favorite fruit. Look for frozen fruit that has no sugar added or fresh fruit if it is available. Most servings of fruit are around 50 calories per cup. This adds flavor and not too many calories.
The next ingredient to liven your shake would be a teaspoon to a tablespoon of jello or instant pudding. You can choose between the regular kind and the sugar free, depending on your preferences. Again the calories are minimal and add great flavor.
The last choice is whether or not you have a blender that can crush ice, if you do, add about a cup of ice cubes and your shake becomes a smoothie. Yum! So you will want to find someone who has experience in choosing the best protein powder and has recipes that have been taste tested.
