Tired of drinking the same protein shake 4 times a day, 7 days a week? Try these recipes to make your protein shakes enjoyable!

Peanut Brittle Protein Shake - (serves 1)

This is a delicious favorite I discovered quite by accident as I sat staring at my "boring" vanilla protein powder and wanting something sweet. This mimics peanut brittle only in taste. It won't send your blood sugar soaring and it's a fun way to get in some healthy unsaturated fat.

Ingredients:

2 scoops vanilla protein
1 tbsp sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix, dry
1 tbsp natural peanut butter, chunky
8 oz. cold water or lowfat milk.
3-6 ice cubes

Directions:

Add all ingredients to blender, blend, and serve. I like to add the peanut butter in last so it stays a little chunky, just like the peanut brittle it is replacing.

The Hulk - (serves 1)

This is a pistachio flavored shake that I came up with one busy morning for my son. He loved it because it was green and walked around the rest of the day doing lat spreads that "ripped" his shirt. I loved it because it only added 19 calories to my protein shake.

Ingredients:

2 scoops vanilla protein
1 ½ tbsp sugar-free pistachio pudding mix
1 mint leaf or a few drops peppermint extract (optional)
1 few drops green food coloring (optional)
8 oz. cold water or low-fat milk
3-5 ice cubes

Directions:

Add all ingredients to blender, blend, and pour into cup. This tastes great without the mint so don't worry if you don't have it around. The shake is a light green even without the food coloring but if you want it green (like The Hulk!), you'll need a few drops.

Oatmeal Meal Replacement Shake- (serves 1)

This is a homemade meal replacement that contains all the nutrition of a hearty bowl of oatmeal. It's got complex carbs, protein, and a little good fat to extend its contribution to your energy stores. If you expect the rest of the day to be hectic, why not double it up and take half of the shake to work to ensure you don't skip a meal just because you'll be stuck in a meeting.

Ingredients:

½ cup dry measure oatmeal, cooked in water and cooled
2 scoops vanilla protein
3 dashes cinnamon
1/8 c sugar free maple syrup or equivalent amount brown sugar replacement
1 tbsp chopped almonds (or flaxseed oil or natural peanut butter)
12 oz. water or low-fat milk

Directions:

Add all ingredients to blender, blend, and pour into cup. If your short on time, just use dry oatmeal or oat flour.
