Things you need for a homemade protein shake

Whether you’re someone who uses whey protein often or not sometimes making your own homemade protein shake is just a more appealing idea. Quite often I run out of conventional protein shakes and need to find something to replace them. The reason why you take ingredients and put them into a shake is because liquids are absorbed much faster. Protein shakes real advantage over conventional food is that they can get to the muscles much faster and kickstart the repair and building process.

Here are 3 recipes you can use to create a protein shake.

Homemade protein shakeHomemade protein shake recipe 1 – The Hollywood Body

  • Skimmed milk
  • Cottage cheese
  • Peanut Butter
  • 4 eggs

The quantities depend on how you like it to taste. Adding more peanut butter will make the shake thicker while those of you trying to reduce fat content may prefer using only 4 egg whites. This is a low carbohydrate shake, thus more suited for those trying to get lean. To add to the taste and calories you can add some oats and then maybe some sweetener. The reason why many protein powders taste sweet is that they contain a sweetener called sucralose. This is a very very powerful sweetener 1000 times stronger per gram than sugar, meaning you need 1000 times as less! It also is not digested by the body thus it has zero calories.

Homemade protein shake recipe 2 – The Mass Builder

  • Vanilla Ice cream
  • Strawberries and/or Blueberries
  • Skimmed Milk
  • 4 eggs
  • Greek Yoghurt

This homemade protein shake tends to those of you who need a calorific substitute. The ice cream and yoghurt contain a high content of fat. The fruits give you some simple sugars and the protein content is from the milk, eggs and yoghurt. There are arguments that fall for and against eating protein from a dairy source. Some studies suggest we do not have the digestive enzymes present to break down the protein into useable amino acids. However it is proven that proteins such as casein which is found in cottage cheese are the slowest digesting in the body. This makes it great for a pre bed snack so your body can have a constant protein supply while you sleep keeping your metabolism high.

Homemade protein shake recipe 3 – The vegetable supreme

  • 2 Carrots
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • Splash of Ginger
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Mango
  • 100ml of Coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Skimmed Milk

Fruits and vegetables are not unknown to supply you with vital minerals that fuel many metabolic processes that result in muscle growth and repair. This shake requires slightly more ingredients but still tastes amazing.

These are 3 quite different protein shakes that you can make in your own home with almost any ingredients. This are also merely a rule of thumb you can add and take out nutrients as you please. I often make these when I am waiting for my next protein delivery to arrive. H

If you have any of your own let me know in the comments below.



  1. Are the eggs raw or cooked? Probably a dumb question but I will ask it anyways. lol

    • It’s actually a really good question, they can be either raw or cooked. If you are unhappy eating raw eggs then hard boiling them and then putting them in a blender will do however you will have to cope with a lumpy shake!

    pressured me to take a look at and do it! Your writing taste has been amazed me.

  3. Shockingly, egg protein powder contains no fat or cholesterol as it is formed from the
    whites of the eggs, and contains no egg yolks. Therefore, morning is a pleasurable time to take protein shakes.
    These fast weight products can also cause you
    to lose life enhancing muscle, slowing your metabolism and weakening your
    long term health.

  4. A cheap multi gym may have been a more expensive exercise machine a short while ago.
    Although if you accomplish your research decently , discovering a
    group fitness trainer who can provide you personal attention in a group set should be the piece of cake.
    However, if you are unable to do this level
    of activity, you can gain substantial health benefits by accumulating
    30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity a day, at least five times
    a week.
