    Most of the recipes involve vanilla or chocolate-flavored whey protein.

    A couple of new recipes, courtesy of Men's Health:

    Berry High-Protein Yogurt

    With this recipe from Dr. Eades, you control the ingredients, the manufacturer doesn't. And that means you can ensure it's free of hard-to-avoid high-fructose corn syrup, while having nearly triple the protein of most ready-to-eat yogurts.

    16 oz plain yogurt

    2 c fresh or frozen unsweetened mixed berries

    4 scoops (about 80 g) vanilla or strawberry whey-protein powder

    2 packets Splenda (optional)

    Line a 2-cup mesh strainer with a paper coffee filter and place it over a mixing bowl. Fill the filter with the yogurt, cover with a clean cloth or waxed paper, and set the bowl (with strainer inside) in the refrigerator for several hours. Much of the liquid from the yogurt will drain into the bowl, resulting in thicker yogurt. In a blender, puree the berries along with the whey-protein powder and Splenda. Once the yogurt has drained, place it in a large bowl and stir in the berry puree.

    Serve in 1-cup portions and store for up to 3 days. Makes 4 cups

    Per cup: 198 calories, 23 g protein, 17 g carbohydrates (3 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 6 g fat (3 g saturated)

    Mocha Custard

    A 12-ounce Frappuccino contains 44 g sugar and a hefty dose of caffeine, but hardly any nutrients. And really, should you ever spend four bucks on a glorified cup o' joe? Instead, try this custard alternative from Dr. Eades. It'll provide you with a jolt of java, a 21 g infusion of protein, and a hefty dose of coconut fat, which contains a healthy type of saturated fat (called lauric acid) that studies have shown boosts immunity.

    1 14 1/2 oz can premium coconut milk (Look for it in the ethnic-foods section of your grocery store.)

    2 c strong coffee (regular or decaf)

    3 eggs, beaten

    3 scoops (about 60 g) chocolate whey-protein powder

    4 packets Splenda

    Pinch of salt

    In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, coffee, beaten eggs, whey-protein powder, Splenda, and salt; whisk to mix well. Gently cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken and lightly coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat, pour into a covered pitcher, and cool quickly by placing the pitcher into an ice-water bath until it's half submerged.

    Serve chilled in 1-cup portions for a quick breakfast. Or blend it with crushed ice until smooth and thick for a frozen mocha treat. Makes 4 cups

    Per cup: 326 calories, 21 g protein, 5 g carbohydrates (0 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 27 g fat (21 g saturated)

    Seeing as how it's a PDF recipie file, umm... I'm gonna say "YES". If you're wanting to buy his recipies pre-made at your local trading post then you're out of luck. :5zombie:



    Random add...

    I made the cheesecake. I like it pretty much, wife didn't much care for it. Don't think "cheesecake" when you make it. Cause it's not and you'll be wierded out by the flavor and texture. It's "lemon-flavored desert substutiute" and it's not bad. I bet it would be better with a tastier whey powder than what I have (el cheapo costco brand).

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
