These are some helpful tips for making our shakes!
All recipes can be found on the Shake Menu Board.


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • Add 1/8 teaspoon of Nutricost guarana powder to any shake mix to add a boost of about 55 mg. of caffeine. 
  • Looking to add more protein? Add an unflavored protein powder with zero carbs to any shake recipe. Our protein powder of choice is <i>Isopure Zerocarb</i>.
