The Best Protein Shake Recipes

The best protein shake recipes or meal replacement shake recipes are pretty much determined by what you like.  There are many homemade recipes that you can make according to your tastes.  Our bodies require protein so that our cells and organs can function properly.  Most women who are healthy need about 46 to 56 grams of protein a day according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  For the most part, eating a diet complete with foods such as beans, fish, dairy, meat and poultry provides sufficient protein.  But for people that do not include many of those foods in their diet, they need more protein and that is where the shakes come in.  Most shake recipes are normally created from a liquid, such as milk, fruit and flavoring.  Bananas are the most popular fruit in shakes because they are foods high in potassium, which our bodies need and there are about 100 calories in banana.

Besides protein shakes, you can drink a low calorie alcoholic drink.  We have all been at a party before where they are serving alcoholic drinks and all we can think about is the calories that are going to add up as soon as we take that first sip.  Well do not fret because there are some drinks you may already like that is low in calories.  As far as cocktails, the ones with the lowest calories are mudslides. Vodka and soda, sangria, gin and tonic and apple martini sour.  If you drink beer, stick with ultra light beer since they have the lowest calories, from 65-95 calories.  For the wine enthusiasts, white wine and champagne are your best choices.
