    How to Make protein shakes flavorful for your weight loss goal

    Protein shake recipes are always perfect for those who wish to gain, lose or maintain their weight. I make protein shake as a snack but I get bored with the usual combination, i.e. Herbalife shake (choco), banana, and water. I’m not working out but I like the convenience of the protein shake. It’s healthy and appetizing.

    How to make protein shake for your weight loss goal?

    I still love my banana, oatmeal and Herbalife protein shake smoothie. It is loaded with potassium, fiber and other vitamins and minerals. And of course it contains 9 grams of protein from Herbalife shake.

    But every now and then, I do make other protein shake recipes to make my ordinary shake into a more flavorful smoothie.

    I have also tried protein shake smoothie made of grapes. The antioxidant content of grapes makes this protein shake perfect not just for weight loss but also in achieving healthy body.

    Unfortunately, grapes are a bit expensive. So, I only prepare this combination once or twice a week. But this protein shake with grapes and berries is not only packed with vitamin C but it is also loaded with potassium, manganese, and, of course, antioxidants.

    Apart from berries and grapes, I also like the papaya protein shake/smoothie. This is especially great in alleviating stomach pain. How? Well, papaya is known to promote healthy digestion. Then, if you add ginger and mint, then you’ll have perfect protein shake not just for weight loss but also to ease upset stomach.

    Peanut butter with chocolate is also a perfect protein shake recipe for your weight loss goal. It does not only produce a shake full of flavor but it is also filled with high amounts of protein. Peanut butter and Herbalife’s protein shake contain massive amounts of protein so it can prevent yourself from eating for a few hours.

    Then, there’s the frapuccino. It’s my second favorite. In this protein shake recipe, you will need a piece of banana, protein powder (Herbalife), almond milk (unsweetened) or soy choco milk, water and instant coffee. I am using Starbucks instant coffee to achieve a taste like it’s made by this giant company.

    How about butterfinger? Yes, it’s delicious too. Although you can add butterscotch pudding mix here, I am using the Butterfinger chocolate. Then, I combine 8-ounce water and protein powder. Put them all in a blender. That’s it. You’ll have instant Butterfinger protein shake.

    It’s almost the same shake being served at Krispy Kreme. However, this type of protein isn’t ideal for those who want to lose weight as the calorie content here is massive. One serving is about 500 calories. Thanks to the Butterfinger.

    However, you can replace it with natural peanut butter to reduce the calories. This is one of the reasons I don’t drink it as often as banana-oat or papaya protein shake.


    1. Don’t add artificial sweeteners to your protein shake. The Herbalife protein shake is already sweet so you don’t need to include sugar in it.

    2. Avoid adding ingredients that contain enormous calories, like Butterfinger. Instead of Butterfinger, you may use natural peanut butter. But you’re always free to use it if you are not dieting.

    3. Add moderate amount of milk. I prefer soya milk (choco flavor) to enhance the protein content of my shake.

    These protein shake recipes are just examples of the many things that you can do to prepare a healthy Herbalife shake. As long as you have your blender, you can easily make a healthy, nutritious smoothie for weight loss. In addition to Herbalife shake, you may also try Nutrilitie’s protein powder. They’re both delicious and great for weight loss

      I have tried the frapuccino and it tasted good. Another protein shake you can add to the list is tomato shake.

      does Herbal Life have a paleo friendly formula, that is also somewhat vegan, dairy free, soy free, nightshade free, gluten free, animal bi product free, allergen free, lead free?

        Hello Amie,

        Paleo diet doesn’t involve drinking protein shakes or taking of supplements. So, Herbalife doesn’t have products for people following a caveman diet. If you’re a strict vegetarian, some of the Herbalife products might not be suitable for you. Herbalife protein shake is free from soy, dairy, gluten and lead. Hope this helps.

        Thanks for visiting.
