    that sounds like a very good drink indeed, although i can imagine how many ounces it makes...surgery pending and I keep reading its a struggle to put down 2-4 oz

    I got a sample of chocolate amp from gnc today. Do you use the 3 scoops and how much milk? The guy at gnc said I could do one scoop and 8 oz milk. Then I have lower calories, carbs and 28g protein.

    Why do you have to take protein shakes ? for how long after the surgery do you have to take them ? Are you eating solid food now? how are you doing ?

    OK, Just cooked up some lean ground beef in beef broth yesterday and added about 1/4 cup of powdered skim milk, garlic and onion powder, salt n pepper and proceeded to blend the crap out of it If you use your imagination, it tastes a little like beef stroganoff but lots of good ol' protien!

    I'm doing pretty good. Only a week out. After surgery you cannot eat sold foods for awhile. I started and still on protein shakes, yogurt, cream soups etc. The protein shakes are for protein. You can only eat 3 oz. at a time and you need your protein. Do you have a dietitian to work with you? Your only 2 weeks away.

    My fail safe was the 17.00 whey protein from Walmart with 1 cup strawberries-55 cal, 1/2 cup sf apple juice-50 cal, 1 scoop protein-110 cal, and occasionally a 50 cal yogurt. 265 calories, blend with ice and freeze the other half. spaced then 2 hours apart and was very full for 4-5 hours and got over 1/3 of my daily protein, 26 g in whey and 8 g in yogurt.

    I read so many good things about the Nectar Cappuccino. I made it this morning with hot coffee in my wisk-ball mixer at work. It was disgusting. Chunks of weird plasticy stuff. Just awful. Did I do something wrong? I really wanted to like this.

    New shake recipe! I love this, just tried it yesterday and had it again for breakfast today ;-)

    4 ounces skim milk (or soy, almond, whatever)
    1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use soy)
    1/4 cup crushed pineapple
    1/4 of a banana

    YUM!

    148 calories
    17g protein

    So this is a silly question, but here goes-Are these protein smoothies for after the 6 weeks of healing time or are they for during the "full liquid" stage. I am a little confused on what "full liquid" means in my booklet that was sent home with me.

    Tabby, I had surgery with Dr. Kim. The protein smoothies are for before and during your full liquid, pureed and anytime you need to get the protein you need. Tomorrow I will be a month post-op and I am on pureed. I am still doing the protein smoothies. They help you get in the amount of protein needed. If you have further questions about the booklet he gave you or just have any question. You can always PM me. I am wishing you the best of luck.
