Nothing can be quite as delicious and satisfying as a great diet shake, especially in the hot weather months that we are now “enjoying.” Whether you choose to go to the mall and visit a nutritional supplement shop, so you can add supplements to your diet shake recipes or whether you prefer your diet shake recipes to contain just what you can get at the farm stand or grocery store; there are a million diet shake recipes out there. It can also be quite fun to experiment with your diet shake recipes and add your own personal touches to your delicious creations.




One of my favorite ingredients to add to any smoothie or diet shake recipes is low-fat yogurt. No mater whether you are making a water-based (ice) shake or a dairy-based (2 % milk) diet shake recipe, a little container of yogurt can add a lot. Yogurt adds a nice creamy consistency to your diet shake recipes, and I wholeheartedly recommend that you try it in your favorite smoothie recipe the first chance you get.





Here are five tried-and-true diet shake recipes. Give them a whirl in your blender:





Strawberry-Orange-Banana Diet Shake Recipes



• Some orange juice – about 2 cups or so



• Some sliced bananas – 1 or 2



• Some strawberries -- a cup or so



• Some ice – about a cup



• A container of strawberry-banana low fat yogurt





Mandarin-Mango Diet Shake Recipes



• Some mandarin orange pieces – 2 cans or so



• Some cut up mangoes – 2 mangos is about right

• Protein supplements from the nutrition store—follow the label directions



• A container of mango-flavored low fat yogurt







Berry Berry Special Diet Shake Recipes

Coffee-Mocha Diet Shake Recipes

Regardless of which of the diet shake recipes you are making, the procedure is the same. Just pop all the ingredients into your blender and turn it on. Run the blender until the shake is the desired consistency, pour into a beautiful glass, and enjoy your homemade, healthy, nutrient-dense, diet shake recipes. Not only will it help with your weight loss; it taste delicious.
