How to make Atkins shakes

Science has been the corner stone of all Atkins products. Every shake that is made here is carefully made with a view to help customers to eat the right food while limiting the intake of carbohydrates. Atkins shakes have a high content of protein that goes long way in providing the required nutrition for the body. In fact, it is often taken as a meal replacement shake.

Making the perfect shake

The catch is in making the shake taste great. You should admit that if it doesn't taste great, you won’t enjoy it. Worse, you may not want to finish it. It can be personalised by adding some flavour that you are partial to. This will lessen that predominant taste of protein and give it a flavour that is more pleasing to suit one’s taste buds. If you are not a body builder and don’t want to have a high intake of proteins, reduce the quantity to something that is closer to what you want without cutting it down drastically. Add chocolate, cocoa, strawberries, banana, whatever you like. If chocolate is your thing, you can opt for the low carbohydrate chocolate to rid yourself of any guilt feeling. If you add fruits, make sure that you consume the shake before it spoils as fruits tend to have a shelf life. Most people like their shake to be absolutely cold. If you are one among them, add some crushed ice. You will definitely be adding milk and when you do, use refrigerated portions. Adding a bit of sugar will definitely sweeten things up.

Blend it well

The thick concentrate with the different ingredients needs to be well mixed to make an even concoction. This will give it a good even texture that is pleasing to drink. It may be a good idea to invest in a good blender that can do the job well. Beat it up till it is nice and even, and store it in a jug or small cups that are convenient to use. In fact, while at it, you can make some extra and refrigerate it so that you don’t have to make it repeatedly. There's nothing like a nice, sweet thick shake to get you ready to take on the day!
