Does anyone have a recipe for an easy shake that would be loaded with fat and protein?

Does anyone have a recipe for an easy shake that would be loaded with fat and protein? Sometimes I'm just not in the mood for veggies and meat and need something different. I'm trying not to eat fruits and nuts because I have PCOS and a ton of weight to lose but I don't think it would be the end of the world to have some every now and then, thanks!

Sounds great! I'm a little afraid of the raw yolks, any special type of egg for this?

hb, if you like coconut, try just adding the flakes. It will really thicken up the protein shake though.

I use a local (brazilian) brand of whey protein concentrate, with 23g of protein and only 2.1g of carbs. This may be no help at all, but I think you should be able to find something similar or even (much) better in America or Europe. Some guys I know recommend the Optimum Nutrition whey (which has a similar protein/carbs ratio), but then again their recommendation does sound a little "broscientific".

Did you also see that it has 54 grams of carbs? From the berries yes, but the dairy is pretty loaded too. If you are just looking for prot/fat this probably is not the shake for you. It looks awesome to me but I'd have to cut it in half because 1000 cals for one meal is pretty heavy..for me. Try making a smoothie with the prot/fat elements...cream, coconut oil, egg yolks. (don't fear the raw yolks! Just find quality eggs!)

What kind of whey are you using? Every time I find one I like (that's low/no sugar), it gets discontinued or something.

Wow, I want to try this. I would do my coconut milk instead of the cream, though. Are you using instant decaf or what?

That looks fantastic. But I know that many berries first thing in the morning would send my (diabetic) blood sugar sky high, and I suspect would be a little much for her PCOS. Maybe just 1/2 cup of one of the berries would work, though.

I would use local, pastured eggs. I use raw yolks in stuff all the time and don't worry since I'm buying good eggs. Save the whites for another dish!

Great point BoneBrothFast. The whole milk is just for the fat. you can easily just use water and add coconut oil for the fat

Since hb has PCOS, I honestly would not be consuming this much dairy. Especially for breakfast. The whey is fine though.

I make this for breakfast every morning (though I add in an extra egg and some extra butter). It fills me up for hours.

whey + 8oz whole milk + 8oz water + 1/4cup Frozen Organic Wild Blueberries == the frozen blue berries make it thick and cold like a milkshake. Wild blueberries are smaller, so they have a higher more skin to meat ratio (most of the good stuff is in the skin)

Ingredient off the top of my head include:

  • Coconut milk, cream, flesh or oil
  • Whole eggs
  • Cocoa powder
  • Coffee
  • Your favourite fruits (I favour berries and occasionally use banana, frozen works really well)
  • Vanilla, cinnamon or nutmeg
  • Raw milk
  • Avocado (you can't taste it, I promise)
  • Spinach, kale or other greens (ditto)
  • Kefir
  • Nut butters, such as macadamia, almond or hazelnut

The possibilities are literally endless. Choose your favourite ingredients and experiment to find a taste and texture that works for you. If you're after a quick fix, I know Mark Sisson has a range of Primal shakes that are balanced and nutritious. Good luck!
