Aug 30, 2008
Being on a diet can be very boring. You quickly get bored of baked chicken. Spice up your diet with healthy diet shakes.

If you are on a diet, or looking for a pre or post workout meal think about diet shakes. A diet shake can be one of your 4 to 6 small meals during the day. It can be a great meal before a workout for energy. It can also work great to get protein in your body after your workout to help your muscles repair themselves. If you don't know how to make a diet shake follow along and learn just how easy and tasty it is.

What Goes Into Great Diet Shakes

Great diet shakes consist of only a few things. You need a base, some flavor and some protein. You can get these in a variety of ways. We will go over each of these three elements.

The base

The base of a diet shake can consist of a few different things and it depends on your taste and how many calories you want in your shake.

You can use yogurt, milk or even shake base. Each of these will give you a delicious diet shake and a different calorie count.

You can get the lowest calories by using skim milk as your base. If you are looking for a higher calorie count use whole milk or yogurt. You will find your diet shakes are more creamy when you use yogurt. You can also add some extra flavor by using flavored yogurt as your base.

Flavor

There is an almost infinite way to flavor your diet shakes. You can use fruits, melon, peanut butter, even avacodo. It sounds strange but it will ad a lovely creaminess to your shake as well as a lot of good fats and nutrients. You can keep testing things out, find out what flavors you enjoy together.

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to diet shake flavors. It really is what you like. That's one great thing about them, you get to make exactly what you like, and because you have so many options you never get bored.

Protein

Protein is one of the most important elements to make a really healthy diet shake. Protein can be such a boring aspect to dieting. Who hasn't gotten bored of eating baked chicken over and over again.

Protein whey comes in a variety of flavors, and none of them are chicken. You can get your much needed protein in flavors like chocolate and vanilla. If you enjoy fruit smoothies you may want to find a fruit flavored protein powder. You will find it gives your diet shakes even more fruit flavor making them that much more delicious.

There you have it, the three things you need to make an excellent diet shake. Just remember that no matter what diet shakes are completely up to you. You get to decide on the flavor, how much protein to use, and how much fruit, and calories.

This level of flexibility is what makes them a great addition to any diet. No matter if you are trying to get more protein, or a lot of produce you can choose the ingredients that fit into your diet plan.
