Got any healthy milkshake recipes?

Hello Folks
Well, I know this probably sounds stupid, but I'm looking for ideas on what to add to a "healthy" milkshake. I'm trying to conjure up a "breakfast shake", that will be somewhat filling, and healthy.....or kinda healthy...LOL. So far, I'm gonna use frozen yogurt, frozen strawberries, bananas and milk, but just wondering if anybody makes their own, or has any ideas of what else to add to this mix. Sorry for the stupid post, but a search on the net found me nothing, so I thought it was worth a try here. Thanks.

2 handfuls of chopped ice, 1 cup vanilla yogurt, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 cup milk, 1/3 of a banana, and 4 strawberries. all in a blender and let it mix until it is liquidy and you can see almost down a tornado to the bottom of the blender. yummy, obviously you can use other fruits too

Re: Got any healthy milkshake recipes?

What I used to do in High School was blend up a big one for workout days:

- 1 banana (lotsa potassium which helps with protein absorption)
- bitta milk (to thin the shake - add as needed for proper consistency)
- pile a' skim milk powder (low-fat, high-quality protein)
- buncha ice cream (probably could use frozen yoghurt)
- whole lotta chocolate syrup

You ain't gonna lose any weight on this one.

Re: Got any healthy milkshake recipes?

Here's my "shake"
1) 1 banana
2) 1 kiwi
3) 1 apple
4) 4 strawberries
5) 1/2 cup of orange juice

Put everything in blender and mix till there's no more chunks. It's not bad for a breakfast drink, but for an after workout I have another "shake" similar to Mark4Runners.

Re: Got any healthy milkshake recipes?

I'm going to give a weight-loss secret recipe here that can be used instead of a high-calorie shake. Now before anyone goes "ewww gross" like some schoolgirl, it's quite tasty (after you get used to it that is). Just mix about 200 grams of low-fat cottage cheese (I like 1%) with about three tablespoons (or however much you like) of fruit cocktail. 200 grams of cottage cheese will have about 27 grams of protein (the average body can only absorb about 30 grams at a time - the rest of the protein will be wasted and will tax your liver when converting it to energy), the fruit cocktail adds flavour, vitamins, and some sugar for energy. You could use fresh fruit, but canned is really easy (and possibly tastier). Sure, it isn't a lot of food, but the protein will help you feel satisfied. Use it as a breakfast or lunch substitute with nothing else.

I credit this idea for getting my belly down by two belt notches (about two inches), and I wasn't too large in that area to begin with.

Re: Got any healthy milkshake recipes?

does it smooth right out to liquid or does it stay sort of lumpy?

yeah, the sugar is the "tastier" part [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: Got any healthy milkshake recipes?

Just mixing it lightly with a spoon, it is lumpy - I've never used a blender. Maybe with some ice, you could make it into a shake. It's the easiest lunch to prepare in the morning (but it should be kept refrigerated because it doesn't taste good when warm, but it may be good if frozen). I have experimented with different cottage cheese and fruit cocktail (found a good brand from Australia) to find the best combo. At first it is a bit odd, but it's worth getting used to.
