Pre made or make it yourself protein shakes?

I have heard that you can buy shakes at GNC buy I have been making mine with a protein powder that I got at wal-mart and I add yogurt, blueberries & strawberries. Which is better?

  • I use a protein powder too, I think that is definitely the way to go, so much cheaper and more versatile, you can make shakes, smoothies, etc. and add whatever you like.

  • For protein shakes I use Beachbody's whey protein powder and add fruit to it, and I also use Shakeology (it's a powder as well) as a meal replacement shake. I add things to that too. I like being able to customize things lol.

  • It's usually more cost-effective to make your own. I buy protein powder from GNC and make shakes with soymilk or water, ice, and sometimes add frozen fruit or yogurt.

  • I use the Isagenix shakes. They are formulated by the same person who once formulated GNC's shakes - and have all the nutrients your body needs. If you want more info let me know.

  • I use the GNC whey protein powder, I prefer to make my own that way I know what is going into it and I can make it differently every time.

  • I also use Beachbody's Shakeology. There are two flavors, Greenberry and Chocolate and the website has a lot of different recipes for each flavor so you have some great suggestions on variety. It's full of antioxidants and a really healthy shake. I mix my powder with 1/2 water and 1/2 soy milk.

    My Favorite is Greenberry. I add frozen blueberries 1/2 vanilla soy milk & 1/2 water. YUM!

    Shakeology comes in a 30 day supply, or you can get 24 single serve packets (great when you are on the go)
    Beachbody has a whey poweder also, but I like the Shakeology!

  • I add the protein whey powder to my slimfast shakes. Adds extra protein. I especially drink this after weight training.
