i imagine adding milk instead of water could make this even tastier plus some added calories!

do you taste the peanut butter in that? because i like peanuts but i do not like peanut butter. would it just taste like peanuts? or peanut butter also i plan on making this just wondering if peanut butter would go well with strawberry real gains and bananas thrown in there

okay just made it and it was pretty good, i like the grahm cracker, but next time i would ditch the water and put 1/2 cup milk in so its a little thicker all in all not too bad.

putting in some cinnamon with your banana shakes adds a slight flavor that is amazing :D

Chocolate Real Gains
Natty PB
Oats

Simple, yet my favorite drink to take to work with me. A good variation is Vanilla, 1 whole banana, and Peanut Butter. Banana and peanuts are a great combo.

1 serving of choco or van. RG
4 tbsp PB
8 oz STRONG black coffee, chilled
12oz skim milk


BLEND!!!!!!

Serve cold or do what I've been doing recently. Lately, I've been real busy studying and have been getting only 4 to 6 hours of sleep. I steam my milk and have the coffee hot, then blend everything up and drink like morning coffee for breakfast. little sleep really kills your appetite, so why not load up with some quality calories you can drink instead??? Also throw in a banana and you're gold.

im thinking about taking real gains, but im lactose intolerant, will i have a problem with this?

and becuase this is kinda a big shake, i dont have a real blender, i have this little handheld thing that you put in a cup that holds like 16 oz to the top, so i was thinking about mixing each thing seperate and then adding it into a big cup and mixing that all with a spoon. Cuz this little handheld thing will have a problem mixing it all, needs a little bit at a time. So i was thinking doing the ice and powder together with a liquid, then other stuff after, how much ice would i need for a nice and thick shake, that will be about 20z.

some of you guys really go overkill on these shakes...

just from personal experience, a full serving of real gains and a banana for me almost send me into a diabetic coma.
I was driving while doing this and almost fell asleep at the wheel, in mid-day!

I prefer my real gains plain and simple, 3 scoops with some crushed ice and water.

think about it... a banana? yogurt and honey too? along with all that maltodextrin?
people add even more carbs to an already high carb shake?
4 tbsp of natty pb on one! thats crazy

I guess some people are just not carb sensitive. Some days I have over 120+ grams of simple carbs after working out (leg day) and I feel just fine and don't bloat or anything afterwards.

i agree
i handle lots of carbs great
i remember when i was 18 and 19 i was taking in close to 400-430g of carbs a day while doing my sports training and full contact kickboxing and i was super lean
real gains was great-i would load up the blender with real gains and a few tablespoons of natty pb, a few bannnanas, some honey, maybe a little low fat yogurt and just go to town-i made great gains when i stopped eating like a girl scout and making everything scientific

3 scoops banana real gains
2.5cups milk
2 tbsp natty pb
1/4 cup crushed ice
and some nice hershey's choc syrup for a little kick (hey its the offseason)

wasnt too bad
