Shake Tips

Tips for making shakes


- For the best consistency, blend the ice and water for a few seconds first before adding dry ingredients.

-If your shake is too thin, add more ice and blend until smooth.

- If your shake is to thick, add warm water to break up the ice and blend until smooth.

Meal Replacement/Protein Powder:

-Our recipes use a combination of a meal replacement shake and a whey protein powder. They were selected based on taste and nutritional value.

-If you already have protein powders, feel free to use them as substitutes.

Calories and Carbs:

- To increase calories and carbs, substitute a pudding mix in the place of any syrup when possible. Adding more pudding will lead to a thicker shake. Increase ice and water to even out consistency if necessary.

-To reduce calories and carbs, replace any pudding mix with a sugar free syrup option when possible.

Boost it:

-Add 1 tablespoon of guarana powder to any shake mix to add a boost of caffeine. We prefer Alovitox as our guarana powder of choice. Each tablespoon provides 65mg of all natural caffeine.

-Looking to add more protein? Add an unflavored protein powder with zero carbs to any shake recipe. Our protein powder of choice is Isopure Zerocarb.
