Protein Powder Weight Loss Shakes

 

The issue with making a healthy protein powder weight loss shakes at home is that it hasn’t been easy to make a smooth protein shake, that tastes decent. Either the protein powder won’t blend well, leaving a powdery, gooey mess, with the consistency of glue, or the consistency just wasn’t right, all frothy and …Wow, I really sound like a smoothie snob, don’t I?

Well, thank goodness, I have discovered the secrets for making great tasting protein powder weight loss shakes, with the perfect texture and consistency.

Want to know what my secrets?

Perfect protein powder weight loss shakes

#1 the smoothie base – Vi Shape Shake mix

#2 frozen fruit, not ice cubes!

The Vi-Shape Shake mix comes in ‘sweet cream’ flavor that make the ultimate fruit, chocolate or even coffee smoothies.  It has a superior nutritional profile to any of the other ‘meal replacement’ powders, and it blends easily in any kind of milk and even water.  Vi-Shape Shake Mix tastes fantastic and blends perfectly – the ultimate protein powder weight loss shake base!

Vi Shape Shake Mix is GMO free, gluten free and lactose free. It is 100% safe for diabetics and even safe for cancer survivors because ViSalus has removed the estrogen precursors in the soy protein.

The Vi-Shape is the perfect protein powder weight loss shake, but its also just the BEST protein powder shake base for people like me who love their protein powder weight loss shakes!

The second secret to the perfect smoothie is frozen fruit. Using the frozen fruit instead of ice cubes gives it a more substantial ‘mouth feel’, and keeps you full much longer.  To make it extra creamy and satisfying, add frozen banana.  I let a bunch of bananas get to the point where they are lightly spotted, then I’ll peel them and put them in freezer bag.  Most of the smoothie recipes below can be made more creamy by adding 1/2 a frozen banana.

I have a smoothie every day, so variety is key. If you are going to use the Vi-Shape Shake mix as a meal replacement as it is recommended in the Body By Vi Challenge, you absolutely want to vary your shakes.  If you are going to stick with the Body By Vi weight loss program and lose all the weight you want to – you will want to incorporate different recipes.  The Vi-Net health tracker system has many suggested recipes. Just remember my tip to freeze the fruit and use it to blend your smoothie instead of adding ice.

Each of the recipes that lists ‘milk’ can be made with your choice of milk.  I use plain almond milk because it is just 60 calories per cup.  You could use cow milk, soy milk, almond, or any milk of your choice!
