Question Homemade Protein Shakes

Hi, I was wondering whether anyone had any recipes for a Homemade Protein shake. Or whether or not they know of any good Web sites that have homemade Protein shakes. I'm looking to make a shake without Protein Powder. I want to get the ingredients from the supermarket. Does anyone know how to do this, or know of any books I can buy to find out this info?

I've never heard of this. But you don't really need a protein shake. Drink a glass of milk and eat a steak, you'll get upwards of 55 grams of protein. And it tastes good, too.

Re: Homemade Protein Shakes

For a post workout shake, you want something that is quickly absorbed to feed the bodies need for carbs and protein. Milk and steak doesn't fit the bill.

The easiest, and best, solution is using a whey concentrate. Is there some reason you don't want to?

Re: Homemade Protein Shakes

I'm trying to keep my protein intake as pure as possible. A lot of those protein powders use artificial sugars and who knows what else. I'd rather have protein come from real food.

Re: Homemade Protein Shakes

Egg protein is the quickest absorbed whole food protein, but it still takes a while to get in to your blood stream. If you don't want to take a whey supp, your best bet is to eat a whole food source of protein an hour or so before training. By the end of your workout you should have a decent level of amino acids in your bloodstream. You'll still need to spike your blood sugar though to replenish glycogen, stop catabolism and kick start muscle repair. Just make sure you don't eat anything too heavy or you might not feel too good during your workout.

Re: Homemade Protein Shakes

There are whey protein powders that do not have sugar in them and do taste good. Just have to look around.
