Liquid Diet Recipes

I'm just going to take a moment to share a couple of recipes that turned out well for me. I've been trying to get some variety in my diet so I don't lose my mind.

First I'll share two Protein Shake Recipes that I enjoy.

Chocolate Mocha Protein Shake

8 oz skim milk
1 Scoop chocolate protein powder of your choice
1 tablespoon Sugar Free Caffeine Free Mocha instant coffee

Blend well and serve. You could also add ice and blend in a blender for added texture/chill.

Salted Caramel Cocoa Protein Shake

8 oz skim milk (or water, I use milk for a creamier texture and extra protein)
1 Scoop vanilla protein powder of your choice
1 pump Torani Sugar Free Salted Caramel Syrup
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Blend well and serve. You could also add ice and blend in a blender for added texture/chill.

This next recipe was created out of a desire for Cream of Chicken and Mushroom soup which I can not find in a low fat variety. So I made my own, and added protein to it as well.

High Protein, Low Fat Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup

1 can Campbell's 98% FF Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can Campbell's 98% FF Cream of Chicken Soup
2 Cups Skim milk
1 Scoop unflavored protein powder
2 teaspoons chicken bullion granuals

Add all ingredients into a blender and pulse several times until well blended. Makes about 4 1/4-4 1/2 cups of soup. I divided it into 4 servings that were just over 1 cup each. This worked perfectly for lunches. I put one in my lunch box and the others in the fridge for later in the week. The soup was a little thin, so you could probably thicken it up by cutting back on the milk. However, I have noticed that the low fat cream soups tend to be a bit thinner than the original to begin with. For my liquid diet I had to strain out any bits of chicken or mushroom from the soup, but that's not necessary if you can have them.

There are many weight loss diets that promise to give you a slimmer figure in no time, but very few of these diets allow you to drink your way to becoming thinner. A liquid diet restricts what you consume to mostly liquids or all liquids. These diets are commonplace in the medical field, as they allow patients to prepare for surgical procedures that call for little to no food in the intestines and recover from surgery until they can digest food normally. For those looking to loose weight, a liquid diet can help you control the amount of calories you take in each day.
