    Looking for good extras to add to protein shakes

    Shop Now
    So because of my hectic lifestyle, I get a fair amount of my calories from protein shakes.

    Im wondering what nutritional additives I could mix in just to boost what the shake is.
    Things that would be not too noticeable in the shake, but would add nutritional boosts to it.

    Just looking for the best "bang for my buck" gulp factor.

    Suggestions?

    Here's my recipe. I pretty much eyeball it when I make one.

    1/3 - 1/2 cup frozen berries
    pour light cream over berries until covered
    1 tbsp full-fat greek yogurt
    1/2 scoop whey protein powder (YMMV obviously depending on what you use)
    2 tbsp light olive oil
    water to adjust consistency

    One of these holds me 4-5 hours without hunger. They're about 14 oz.
    5' 9" 44 YO F
    PB start June 2, 2012
    Pre PB SW = 180 (no scale at home, Mom's scale January - 153lbs!)

    The world is your oyster. Check out the list of good stuff to eat as stated by the PB way of life and blend away. If it blends and you can drink and like it, go for it. Experiment
