Whey Protein Shake

Submitted by: WARBLER1

Introduction

I make this is my post-workout recovery treat, as well as a meal substitute on busy days. I add a small scoop of low-fat ice cream to satisfy my preference for a creamy shake but that ingredient can be eliminated.

Ingredients

    1 cup 2% milk
    1/4 cup low-fat or fat-free vanilla ice cream (optional)
    1 scoop whey protein powder (any flavor)
    8 ice cubes

Directions

Pour 1 cup 2% milk into blender jar and add 1/4 cup low-fat vanilla ice cream. Cover and start blender. With blender running, remove the center piece of the cover and add 1 scoop of whey protein powder. Allow to blend until powder is fully incorporated. Add ice cubes 1 or 2 at a time. If your blender has an "ice breaker" setting, use it at this time. Once all the ice is added, set the blender at frappé for 10-15 seconds, then shut off. The shake should be nice and thick. Drink with a straw to slow intake and increase your feeling of fullness. I'm lazy about washing extra dishes, so I simply drink it out of the blender jar!
