For those who drink protein shakes w. milk, try soy milk its AMAZING! makes it much more creamy. I have chocolate ones, but I assume other flavors will taste great as well Smile enjoy!

I've seen Soy milk at the grocery store but was afraid to try it, thinking it would probably taste bad, but now that I know it's actually "creamy" I might give it a shot. Also, I had no idea how to make a protein shake, so thanks. Surprised

Try a "Chunky Monkey" - just remember they are a big snack or small meal Razz

1/2 - 1 frozen banana (gotta be frozen)
vanilla soy milk, enough to cover the banana (about 1 cup)
1-2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp peanut butter

In a blender -

Blend the banana and soymilk until smooth (milkshake consistency),add peanut butter,blend until mixed, add protein powder, and give a quick blend.

Tweak the measurements to your taste buds/caloric level. I always have a line up at our house when I make them so I usually eyeball it. Every once and awhile the kids get one for breakfast and they think I'm the best mom in the world!!

You can even throw a little ground flax seed in to up the fibre.

Enjoy!! Smile

Oh - and this isn't specific to the South Beach Diet...just found this thread and thought I would share - hope that's okay!!

That sounds good! Is there a particularly good brand of vanilla soy milk? How about the protien powder, what is considered good (I confess that I know zip about this). Very Happy

I must say, there is a book called The Metabolic Syndrome Program that talks a lot about different supplements and so forth. It is by Karlene Karst, a nutritionist in Canada, who gave a free seminar at a local natural foods market. I learned so much about supplements that I didn't know diddley about! I also learned about the Reset shake that I drink for breakfast, and loveeeeee it. It is a protein shake, but also has a good amount of fiber. It's a great taste and the way I mix it, makes it yummy and filling! The shake it Natures Way, Metabolic Reset Weight Loss shake, I like the vanilla to mix in other flavors. Here's a link to it: http://www.vitacost.com/Natures-Way-Metabolic-ReSet-Weight-Loss-Shake-Mix-Vanilla

I like to mix it with: 1 tsp grnd flax seed, 1 tsp honey, 1/2 cup ff yogurt (plain), 1/2 to 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter, 2 good dashes of cinnamon, 1-2 scoops protein shake, 1 tsp flax oil (organic, cold pressed). Even my hubby will drink a shake with me, there are delicious!

The nutritionist stressed the importance of the glycemic index, prediabetics and how fiber plays an important roll in a good shake. The link is through vitacost.com but Amazon also has it for a reasonable price. Hope this helps! Smile

I am interested in drinking shakes... but i am afraid that it will make me gain weight! Is this a weird myth I may have heard somewhere or will the protein shakes really make me gain the pounds back?

well since you aren't really restricted in the # of gms. of carbs like Atkins it is possible. I know my whey protein only has 5gms per serving and I use Soy Milk which is about 7gms after the dietary fiber is included...you can use it as a meal replacement or snack if you'd like. I like shakes b/c it takes my mind off of thinking of what to eat, and also it forces me to workout b/c I believe it could lead to weight gain as well Smile.


I use it on my 'down days' during JUDDDD and its great

Make sure to get unsweetened soy milk, many of them have sugar. My favorite is Silk Unsweetened. You can add sweeteners and cocoa for chocolate, or vanilla for vanilla. I sometimes use sugar-free Torani syrups for different flavors. It is hard to find a splenda sweetened soy milk, but I have seen them at some stores.


Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!
