the longer and faster you blend, the more they stay suspended, but its not too bad if you just shake it and chew them a little bit. If you blend long enough they pretty much dissolve and just thicken up the shake
first thing i do is pour a bowl of cereal, after that is coffee, then an hour later it's a couple egg mcmuffins so eating from 530am to 730am, breakfast is the only meal i really really want to eat. im so fucking hungry when i get up. when i take a nap for 2 hours i get up and i have to eat something quick!
Here is what i used to do:
1 tbl spoon olive oil
8 oz whole milk
1 cup oats
1 or 2 scoop whey protein
This was about 800-1000 calories and tasted pretty good to me
This is my favorite, but I found some nice variants to give you a bit of variety.
Sometimes I replace the banana for frozen raspberries, taste great with chocolate protein and they don't blend all the way and give you a nice raspberry icecube
Also peanut butter instead of olive oil also gives you a nice different flavor.
A tip to getting the oats to blend I found is letting them soak in the milk for a few minutes, I think they blend up better but still need to be shaken from time to time to keep them from going to the bottom.
That must suck. If I was doing a traditional bulk, my breakfast would be bacon, cheese eggs, toast, grits, sausage and coffee...and bacon. With a side of bacon. I'd probably have some bacon if I got around to it too.
I use a Vitamix blender so everything always gets completely liquified but here is one of my am shakes
1 cup milk
1-2 large handfuls spinich FROZEN!!!! Never goes bad or slimey if bought fresh, and frozen immediately!!!!
3 scoops of chocolate OR Strawberry protein (both taste great with spinich)
Water if its too thick to pound immediately.
My lunch shake is something of this:
1 cup milk
1/2 - 3/4 cup oats
chocolate or strawberry (sometimes vanilla) protein
Vitamix is the best... pricey, but well worth it. It will liquify anything.
Other tips, peeling and freezing bananas and / or fresh fruit is a great way to get a chilled shake without having to add ice.
In fact, I've made 1000's of shakes over the last few years and never once added ice to achieve a cold shake.
