Here's one that would normally be considered for fat loss since it's light and refreshing, but due to the fact that it goes down so easily, it's actually great for mass building programs as a super source of extra protein.

In a blender, mix a half cup of cold water, one scoop of protein powder, one banana, 10 frozen strawberries, 4 ice cubes and 2 packets of sucralose or aspartame. Voila! A delicious summertime treat -- anytime!

When working with unflavored protein, it doesn't only have to be used in shakes. There are plenty of ways to utilize the protein without even knowing how to cook. Here are a few examples:


Blend protein and milk into a thick batter and pour into a bowl.

Add one can of pumpkin, and a half box of instant vanilla sugar-free pudding.

Mix in 4 packets of aspartame or sucralose and a glop of honey.

Add 1/4 ounce of pumpkin pie spice (Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Allspice)

Pour contents into a graham cracker pie crust and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

A killer dessert with approximately 15 grams of protein per slice -- and a hefty dose of fiber as well!


Using a half cup of pre-packaged brownie mix along with a half cup of protein blend, add one egg, a quarter cup of oil, walnuts, and 4 packets of sucralose.

Pour batter halfway up in a greased cupcake pan.Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.

Allow to cool fully. YUM!!!


Mix two packets of apple cinnamon instant oatmeal with a large scoop of protein powder.

Add one egg, a spoonful of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of wheat germ, a small box of raisins (optional) a dash of salt, 4 packets of sucralose and an 1/8th of a cup of oil.

Squish batter into flat 2" cookie shapes on an ungreased pan.

Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

These will be hard to resist! And they're great to throw in a Tupperware bowl and take along with you for a quick high energy/protein snack on the go.

Naturally, desserts of this type, even though they're protein fortified, aren't meant to be consumed in copious quantities. They're more of an additional source of protein that will quell your sweet tooth without blowing your diet -- or your budget. By making your own "meal replacements" you'll be saving a ton of dough as well as making sure you like what you're eating.

Protein supplementation isn't doesn't have to be a financial back breaker and it doesn't have to be treated as if it's something mysterious and highly scientific. It's just food.
