Dream a Little Dreamsicle

First protein shake:

8 oz. light vanilla Silk soy milk              70 calories, 6g protein
Jay Robb Tropical Dreamsicle protein    110 calories, 25g protein

Used my new Blender Bottle which was way easy.  Tasted good, though I think the vanilla soy milk was stronger than the dreamsicle flavor.  I bet using 6oz of the soy milk would have made the overall flavor a bit more dreamsicle-like, but this wasn't bad at all.  And, I need to remember that our family likes flavor...the more flavor the better. AND I've been told my tastes will change after surgery.  Only downfall was that shaking it makes it really frothy.  Next time I may try to prepare it and then let it sit in the refrigerator before drinking it to let the foam go down.  Otherwise, this was definitely a two thumbs up type of drink!

  1. I really wish we would have seen the smaller size blender bottle because I think that would be better for you..it would also have less froth due to less open air space in the bottle when you mix. You could put the spring thingy in your smaller bottle and try that.

  2. maybe shake it different too..not so vigorous...it might be the Silk frothing. Shrug

    1. Yeah, the smaller probably would have been better, but this was okay...really. I just think I'll let it settle a bit next time. :)
