One of the main things that I survive off during my liquids only days and one of the things that I make when I’m in a hurry is protein shakes. I love you can make them in hundreds of different flavors and with all kinds of ingredients.
Today I want to share how I create my basic protein shake and share a new product that I’m very excited about that I used to create this shake:
Tillamook Light Yogurt is made with Truvia a natural calorie free sweetener. Making this yogurt low in calories and high in flavor.
You know I’m a huge greek yogurt eater, but with only 110 calories and 7 grams of protein Tillamook’s new yogurt is amazing! And it is much easier to feed to my boys who are known to turn up their noses to the strong taste of greek yogurt unless it is filled with sugar to cover the flavor.
This is just a very basic recipe, but you can make amazing shakes with just a few changes to your ingredients. Here is just a few ideas of other things you can add to your shake to change the flavor or add more nutrition:
Greens (Arugula, cilantro, lettuce, spinach, etc)
Fruits (fresh or frozen, just not too much)
Flavored Sugar Free Syrups
Sugar Free Pudding Mix (Pistachio is my favorite)
Sugar Free Jello Mix
Nut Butter (Peanut, almond, sunflower, just not too much)
Stay Tuned: I will be sharing more adventures with Tillamook Light Yogurt! Hint of some things to come: My boys personal reviews, Rainbow Yogurt Drops, Toasted Quinoa on yogurt, and more!
What is your favorite shake flavor? What kind of ingredients have you tried in your shakes?

Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
