Protein shakes! There tends to be a love/hate relationship with them. Often times we get asked how to make a super shake. We think of a super shake as something that has protein, fruits/veggies and fat all mixed together. This is not your standard protein and water/milk shake! Super shakes are a great way to:
- Get calories in if your having a hard time eating due to surgery or something else. Maybe your one of those lucky people that we tell you to eat MORE food. It happens more then you think!
- Add in a quick meal that stays “fresh” for a long period of time.
- Increase your water consumption if your having a hard time getting enough water in.
- Eat while traveling.
But, if you type in “protein shakes” you come up with over 10 million hits. Meal recovery shakes give you over a million hits. Super shakes? 19 million!!! Let’s make it easier on you. Here’s a great infographic that gives you a step by step process to making a super shake, from the liquid to the topping PLUS it gives the pro’s and con’s to a magic bullet vs. a vita mixer.
We will throw this out there – if your a guy, or if you like a more robust shake with lots of liquid and ingredients then you want to get something that has a large volume capacity (at least 32 oz) and a lot of WATTS!!!! MORE POWER!!! Generally over 1200 watts will take care of a lot of stuff. I have made plenty of shakes that have been disasters because I put too many ingredients in them relative to water. I have also burned motors out of shakes for the same reason. The Ninja does a pretty good job if you get the beefiest version you can find. Like this one -> click on the link to get it from Amazon. We don’t make any money of this (disclaimer).
Enough words – show me the goods!
