So – I figured I’d share my shake recipe with everyone in the FatOff competition – and in determining the calories this morning, I found out it’s a little on the heavy side, so I’m going to adjust it later this afternoon.
1.5 cups of frozen fruit (6lb Dole bag from Sams Club)
16oz of orange juice (Simply Orange pulp free w/calcium)
1 scoop of EAS Whey Protein (Vanilla)
1 packet of NuPlus nutritional supplement
Put NuPlus in bottom of blender, fruit on top, then orange juice and blend. Mix in the scoop of protein (seriously – mix it in by hand, or it will fly all over the place) and blend again.
Totals out to 540 calories – which – eh – is too much for me. Also, there are is a lot of sugar from all the fruit, so that’s no bueno either. I’m going to cut it down to the following:
3/4 cup fruit
8oz of orange juice
1 scoop of EAS Whey Protein
1 packet of NuPlus nutritional supplements
Water as needed to thin it out
That will bring the calorie count down to around 360 and it will still be a good fulfilling snack.
