  • Butter in a protein shake?

    Sounds crazy, but has anyone tried it? I need to add a little fat to my protein shake and am not a huge fan of coconut (and I can't get past the taste of avocado when I've tried that as an alternative). I can only think that it would taste good, and I know from the bulletproof people that it froths up nicely when whirred in a blender.

    It would be pretty clotty and nasty unless you downed it warm.

    Try heavy cream or milk.

      Try full-fat yogurt? If you eat nuts you can put almond butter/cashew butter in.

      My favorite fat source in smoothies: melted dark chocolate and cacao nibs.

      Also I love whole raw eggs in smoothies.

      I am ashamed to admit I have tried a chocolate bacon smoothie shake before.

        Haven't tried it, no, but I have put butter in my coffee. Then added protein powder. Wasn't bad, but it just felt heavy. Couldn't even taste it.

            Ooh nice. I like the idea of cacao nibs. Do they blend well or does it end up like a chocolate chip smoothie? I don't mind much either way.

              Whoa so many replies on the bacon chocolate shake!

              This was a long while back as I no longer have bacon (eating peat) but approximately:
              ~1 cup milk of choice (coconut, cow milk, etc)
              ~1Tbsp raw cacao (unsweetened cocoa powder works but I recommend Nutiva raw cacao... Can get from amazon)
              ~sweetener (I used 1-2T grade B maple syrup to compliment the bacon)
              ~1/2 cup blueberries or acai berries (sounds gross but... Berries blend into chocolate well; feel free to omit or substitute)
              ~4 pieces maple bacon. You can just use bacon grease if your blender sucks.
              ~optional: 1 scoop chocolate whey

              The proportions are approximate. Adjust as needed. I got the inspiration from chocolate-covered bacon and jack-in-the-box's maple bacon milkshake they had as a promotional. It was like drinking liquid maple bacon ... Wayyy too rich.
              -----------------
              Primalstudent:
              Cacao nibs being blended will depend on your blender. Vitamix and comparable will make the nibs 100% smooth. My craptastic ghettomama blender makes it into bits of chocolate goodness so I usually use cacao nibs and raw cacao powder together.

              Also, coconut milk doesn't taste weird in tropical smoothies. Mangoes, pineapples, and etc taste good. Mango +coconut milk + vanilla whey.

              Smoothies don't have to be sweet. Avocado + cucumber makes an amazing cold soup-type drink.

              Coconut oil is often used in vegan smoothies for healthy fat. It doesn't taste strongly in smoothies and I can't detect chunks even in my ghetto 3.0 blender. Thumbs up.

                  I've blended hot tea with butter, coconut oil, whey and vanilla extract and/or cacao & maybe some stevia or a splash of maple syrup into a hot frothy shake occasionally as a meal replacement and that was good.

                  I call it bombproof tea

                        I just has 1 scoop of Muscle pharm combat chocolate mixed in a blender while pouring 1/2 a cube of melted butter right down the middle.

                        The result was a thick buttery chocolate shake that tasted incredible. Will do again with other ingredients like coconut oil.
                        I give a cold butter shake 10/10. Totally killed my hunger. Will definately do again.
