How to make a protein shake...

by MaryJo

Here's a tip on how to make a protein shake that I'd like to share:


I add Fage Zero yogurt to my shakes. An 8 oz. serving has 20 grams of protein far more than any other yogurt. I usually add four ounces to get 10 grams of protein in my shake.

I've also been adding a tablespoon of flax seed oil because I've heard we need a certain amount of good oils to lose and maintain weight loss.* I'm not sure if that's true or not.

*DaNae's Note - MaryJo, you are right that one needs beneficial fat to lose weight. Don't go overboard if you are looking to lose weight.

You can use ground flax seeds as well. A good way to add fiber into your smoothie.

Other great ways to add healthy fats to your smoothies are chia seeds, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds. Raw nuts(almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts) are great as well.

The Healthiest Fat
by: Jeanne

The best way I know of to add good fat to a smoothie is to add a tablespoon of Coconut Oil. This oil is used by the body and not stored. It is amazing because it has so many health benefits plus the flavor is really good. You can also use coconut milk or scoop out the flesh of a youg Thai coconut.
