Whether you're eating to bulk up, slim down, or just maintain your fantastic body, your nutrition regimen probably includes a protein shake or two...or ten. That's because protein is an essential macronutrient for building and maintaining lean muscle mass!

For each recipe, put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until your shake reaches the desired consistency. Depending on your macronutrient and caloric needs and taste preferences, you may need to tweak the recipes. Don't be afraid to improvise!

Mass Builders

If you're trying to pack on the pounds, eating enough whole food to meet your caloric needs can be dang-near impossible. That's when protein shakes can be really helpful. These muscle-building recipes are full of calories and protein so you can grow!

To make these shakes eve more calorie-dense, try a mass-gainer protein powder. You'll get more carbohydrates and fat?and therefore more calories? than you would using a whey isolate. Lift big and eat bigger!

These are all very heavy shakes, very protein packed. They're good, but not if you're really trying to cut.

The ones with water, no peanut butter, and only a scoop of protein are lean. Those should work and only be around 200-300 calories

Just use them as ideas of what to put in your shake. You can always customize the portion sizes or make substitutions to fit your needs :)

I'd be nice if it had the nutritional info. I know protein powders vary by brand, but just generally speaking would help. Great article though!

You can substitute any of the proteins you want. Just keep in mind that tome proteins are thicker than others and may require more water or juice to change the consistency.
