Quick protein drink ideas

Here are some quick and easy high protein drinks with items you may already have in your refrigerator at home.

Take one 8-ounce cup of 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites (26g Protein) and mix with any of the following liquids for a fast meal replacement. No blender, just a shaker cup or stir well.

Fat Free or Sugar Free "Liquid" Coffee Creamers make great drinks. Coffee Mate and International Delight have lots of great flavors. These are concentrated, so a 2oz serving is plenty with 8oz of Liquid Egg Whites. You can also add 2oz of milk for a 12oz drink.

Suggested coffee creamers to use with 8oz of Liquid Egg Whites:

2oz Southern Butter Pecan. Great at bedtime.
2oz Pumpkin Pie Spice (Seasonal item, Very Good)
2oz French Vanilla or Hazelnut
2oz Chocolate Carmel (this is hard to find but very good)

Other items you might find at home...

- 2 tspn Hershey’s Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup

- 4oz of V-8 Splash Pina Colata. Great for breakfast. Any V-8 drink goes good with 100% Liquid Egg Whites.

- 4oz Sunny-D Smooth. This is more concentrated than Orange Juice. If you want to use Orange Juice, use a 50/50 split of Egg Whites and OJ. Otherwise, it taste like watered down Orange Juice.

- Starbucks single serving bottles make great high protein cold coffee drinks. Use 4oz to 6oz of any flavor coffee, with 8oz Egg Whites, shake well.

- You can take any coffee you like, add ice cubes for cold coffee, and add egg whites for a high protein breakfast and coffee combo (Not hot coffee unless you want poached egg coffee)

You are limited by your own imagination. Send me your ideas to share with everyone!

Here's to a new you!

Hi Mathew!
I love my protein shakes but I'm off the processed stuff so I do mine a little differently.
For instance this morning I had 2 c almond milk, 1 scoop whey protein, 1 tsp instant espresso, 1 tsp cocoa, cinnamon & half a banana and stevia to sweeten. Kinda/sorta cinnabon-ish :)
I like to mix things up so I don't get bored with my shakes but I do have my favorites. I love my protein shakes in the morning.
thanks for coming over to my blog :)

Thanks for stopping in Fitcetera! The reason I use the Liquid Egg Whites is for the extra protein. Personally, although there are many factors influencing protein needs, I think people striving for muscle growth need at least 1 to 1.5 g/lb.

In my opinion, 1 to 1.5 g/lb is a good start for people doing typical year-round training. When the intensity goes up, I'd take the protein up, as well.

Great Job on looking great.
Are you training for any shows? My husband has done some natural body building shows. I was training to do something and was lifting five days a week too, but some things happened and I had to lay off. So, now I'm weight lifting three days a week, and training for a half marathon.
Thanks for following my blog.

Thank you for posting sunshine mama. I have competed a few times but nothing really serious. I would love to do another show but as you know it is very hard work and a ton of discipline. I can do it but right now I want to focus on adding more size. It's more of a hobby for me. Good luck on your marathon! I know you will do well. Be sure to follow blog, more great info is on it's way!
