Wondering what to do with leftover coffee? Today, I used cold brewed coffee instead of water to make my chocolate shake. I add a few drops of liquid splenda and a splash of half & half.

For convenience, I use Natural Factors, SlimStyles Double Chocolate that is sold in packets.

I had been using a freebie shaker bottle, but I splurged and got a Sundesa Blender Bottle and it is very nice. It has more threading so the top stays on tight and the spout is firm where you can pour out the mixed shake into a cup and leave the ice in the shaker, if that's your style . I have the 28 ounce size to have plenty of room for stuff to mix.

Have fun!

Marie, most people use some form of whey protein. There is a recent thread on the ones people like best.

I buy most of my products on netrition. Very cheap prices, at least half of what GNC would price.
I really like Whey Protein powders. Best for weight lifting at least. Natures best isopure zero carb Vanilla, Cookies and Cream, and LC Dutch chocolate are my favorites. I just bought some Syntrax Nectar Cappuccino whey protein powder, Ive heard this one is really good.
I have a little Hamilton Beach blender that works wonderfully. After I blend up my shakes, I put the lid on it and use it as my cup.

For years my liquid breakfast shake, when I made it was very simple, the first one in my recipe book:
oj, powdered milk, egg, water.
That's what I had for breakfast today.

that book has 3 versions, and since I have the ingredients, I decided to try the second.
1/2 pkg vanilla pudding mix (s/f) 1 egg, (or white only) 1 TBSP lemon juice, 3 c orange juice. Sadly, this is more like a dessert, and I'm almost finished with the juice. This one has a tang that I like. I may add lemon juice to the other one, too.

I got a new blender for Christmas. My daughter saw my other one--the one I got before I had her, lol, on the shelf. Now I have two. So now I can make an eggcream before I finish my high protein drink! LOL! The new one is a bit bigger, and I think I'll double some of these recipes.

I would like to try some of these recipes but having trouble with the raw egg thing. So raw egg beaters are ok? or better than just plain raw eggs? Thx

Yes, Egg beaters are processed so they are safe to drink raw. It took me a while to do to muster up the courage.... I also use regular raw eggs too, after being heckled by some LCF's on here just HAD to try it. LOL

You could always leave the egg out. They really dont matter THAT much. I make my shakes either way.

This makes a big shake. Use 2 scoops and increase the liquids each by 2oz for 2 shakes.
I wonder if this tastes anything like an orange julius?

How I make my shakes...The Winter Shakes are at the bottom:

I use 1 & 1/2 scoops of either vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder. I don’t use Soy because it messes with the thyroid. I like and use the chocolate and vanilla WAY more often than the strawberry, and when the strawberry is gone I probably won't buy any more....so it'll be just the chocolate and vanilla. Here are some of the ways I make them.

I get a 5 lb bag of EAS 100% Protein Powder at Sam's Club for less than $30. That's pretty cheap!!


Strawberry Protein Powder:

2 ice cubes, a splash of DaVinci's SF syrup, & enough ice water to reach the "fill" line on my personal-size blender (probably 6-8 oz)
1.5 scoops of Strawberry Protein Powder
1-2 tsp Cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp Cool Whip (Walmart's House brand has NO transfats)

I use mint, raspberry, cherry, etc. DaVinci's Syrup. Any kind that you think would go with Strawberry.
Mix in my Back to Basics Personal Blender

Chocolate Protein Powder:
2 ice cubes, a splash of DaVinci's SF syrup, & enough ice water to reach the "fill" line on my personal-size blender (probably 6-8 oz)
1.5 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
1-2 tsp Cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp Cool Whip (Walmart's House brand has NO transfats)

I use instant coffee crystals & Kahlua Syrup for a Kahlua/Coffee shake.
Raspberry syrup and instant coffee crystals for a Raspberry/Coffee shake.
The Pancake Syrup tastes like caramel and is MUCH better than the caramel syrup.
Mint syrup for a Chocolate/Mint Shake
Coconut syrup for a "Mounds" shake
Coconut syrup and Almond flavoring for an "Almond Joy" shake
Cherry syrup for a "Chocolate Covered Cherry shake"

Vanilla Protein Powder:

Orange Julius Shake:
2 ice cubes, about 3 or 4 oz. Orange Crystal Lite (made according to pkg directions), & enough ice water to reach the "fill" line on my personal-size blender (probably 4-5oz)
1.5 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1-2 tsp Cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp Cool Whip (Walmart's House brand has NO transfats)

Pumpkin Pie Shake:
2 Pumpkin Pie cubes (recipe follows), about 3 or 4 oz. Orange Crystal Lite (made according to pkg directions), & enough ice water to reach the "fill" line on my personal-size blender (probably 3-4oz. The pumpkin cubes take up some of the room)
1.5 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1-2 tsp Cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp Cool Whip (Walmart's House brand has NO transfats)

Pumpkin Pie Cubes: I use 1 (29oz.) can and 1 (15oz.) can of pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix…that’s high carb). Put the pumpkin in a 6 qt. bowl. Sprinkle on 6 tsp (2 Tbsp) Pumpkin Pie Spice and 3 tsp (1 Tbsp) Cinnamon. Mix well. A large whisk works pretty good. Spoon into ice cube trays. Mine happen to hold exactly 2 Tbsp and this amount makes 2 trays (total 28 cubes). Freeze. When frozen, dump out of trays into a couple of quart freezer bags and put in freezer. Add one or two cubes to shakes as desired.


You are limited only by the syrups you have on hand and your imagination. The combinations are endless. I have Amaretto syrup, Vanilla, Raspberry, Hazlenut, Toffee, Crème de Menthe, Cherry, Coconut….I can't even remember what all. Keeps me from getting bored with the shakes. Hope this helps.

The Cool Whip helps thicken the shakes as do the ice cubes. I LOVE the "Back to Basics" Personal Blender. I got mine at Walmart. They are more expensive everywhere else, and I'd hate to be without one. Clean up is SO much easier with one of these than with a regular full size blender.

=========================================


In the Winter when it’s too cold to enjoy a cold shake, I make a Winter Shake. Nutritionally, it is the same, but is not so cold.

Winter Shake:

1 & 1/2 scoops of Chocolate Protein Powder; a tsp of cinnamon, a tsp or so of Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder; 1 Tbs. Heavy Whipping Cream; a little SF DaVinci’s Syrup; 1 Tbsp of Cool Whip; and a little water if necessary (less than a Tbsp).

The way I make this is: Put the protein powder in a bowl. Dump in the cinnamon and cocoa powder. Stir with a fork to mix. Pour in a little DaVinci’s Syrup (any flavor that goes with Chocolate) and the Heavy Whipping Cream. Stir until mixed well. It should look like cake batter. If it’s too thick add a “little” water. Add the water about 1/4 of a teaspoon at a time. It’s easy to get too much. When it’s the consistency you want, put a Tbsp of Cool Whip in the middle and swirl it with the fork. Lick the fork and eat with a spoon like pudding.

Actually I had the WM name wrong. It's Orange Early Rise.

Parisfox, those sound sooooo good. I Just bought some Muscle Milk for the first time (of any kind) this weekend. Costco has it on sale w/their coupon. 3 lb is normally $28.99 and the coupon is $6.00 off (through the end of the month). I got the vanilla and chocolate, that's all they carry but that's all I'd buy because I can use fruit or syrups. The first one I made was the vanilla and I just used as directed, water and a scoop then I added some frozen blueberries and a few ice cubes. I need to get frozen strawberries because I ran out. The chocolate's really good too. I used some cold coffee as part of the water portion. Definitely going to have to make the frozen pumpkin cubes as that sounds so good also. Wonderful recipes.

I have the Hamilton Beach personal size that I got from WM, slightly different than the Back to Basics one but I love it. It's used very often. More so now.
