Chocolate Raspberry Protein Shake

  • 1 scoop CrioSport 100% Whey (chocolate flavor)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
  • 2 teaspoons sugar-free raspberry syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Truvia
  • 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum

227 calories, 2.5g fat, 8.7g carbs, 41g protein. It was pretty tasty. I got the sugar-free raspberry syrup from the Homegoods store. All chemicals, but whatever. Gotta spice up the protein shakes.


Lemony Protein Shake

I’ve been making lemony protein shakes for breakfast the last few days.

  • Splash of lemon juice (I buy the big bottles from CostCo)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon lemon essence
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xantham gum
  • water to fill the Magic bullet cannister

I give the cannister good shake before blending it on the Magic Bullet

This protein shake is very tasty, but not as thick as I would like, so I will try it again when I get some cottage cheese. I bought the lemon essence from the Homegoods store for $2.99 along with a butter-vanilla essence. I bet that will be delicious. There’s no sugar listed in the ingredients, so I suppose it doesn’t add many -if any-extra calories (no nutritional info on the label). There are some artificial ingredients, so not too terribly clean-eating but what can you do. It’s a nice option from the usual bland protein shakes.



Today’s workout – P90X Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps and butterscotch protein shake

I did this workout at home today, because I would be ashamed for people at the gym to see me fall flat on my face while attempting plyo push-ups. Although I managed 10 today! (on my knees) That’s the most I’ve ever been able to do.

I worked so hard today I wasn’t even thrown off when Tony Horton kept calling this guy by the wrong name.

Dave, David, Davey, anything, even Sean

Today’s protein shake:

  • 1/2 Trader Joe’s fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop CrioSport 100% Whey in vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons sugar-free butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum
  • however much water fits in the Magic Bullet canister

I gave the canister a good shake and blended it up on the Magic Bullet. 277 calories, 2.5 grams fat, 12.7 grams carbs, 41 grams protein. I could probably get regular cottage cheese to add in some fat.

Butterscotch Protein Shake


Very tasty! Just like a regular butterscotch milkshake (almost)


Today’s workout and protein shake recipe

Today was TRX again – seriously love love love it.

When I got home, I made a protein shake based on a few different recipes I’ve seen on the internet:

  • 1 scoop CrioSport 100% Whey protein in vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s nonfat cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon stevia
  • 1 teaspoon Jello sugar free pudding mix in butterscotch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum
  • however much water will fill up the rest of the cup

I put all this in my Magic Bullet cannister, give it a good shake and then blend, blend, blend.
Delicious! Perfect for my sweet tooth while actually being good for me.
