Since I started having problems with Premier Protein shakes (were great then some were too thick, then they sent me a case of the reformulated shakes and they are so thin it's like slightly chocolatey water), I have become obsessed with Smoothie King's Gladiator protein smoothie. 45 grams of protein, 189 calories, no sugar, 1 carb, and it is delicious. I taste no protein whatsoever, although apparently I'm just getting used to protein taste because my boyfriend said he could definitely taste it.
My new addiction was getting a little expensive since they aren't cheap and the closest Smoothie King is way outside of my daily routes, so I have decided to try to make my own since they sell big tubs of the protein powder they use in the store. My boyfriend is awesome and bought me one of the super-powerful Ninja blenders and I've got some fruit in the freezer now so that I can try to make one when I get home.
My worry now is that the one time I've tried to blend a smoothie, it was in my bullet, and it was so full of air that I couldn't drink it. I don't have problems with them when I get them from Smoothie King, so I'm hoping that you guys might have some tips and tricks you use to make sure there isn't a bunch of air!
P.S. As a side note, I'm down 50 pounds today!
