You can use water or milk. I like milk because it just tastes better and I am working out so much where the extra calories are needed. WOMEN: I recommend water if you are trying to slim down, BUT, there are many types of bases you can use for your smoothie other than milk & water! (I will be making a video STRICTLY covering how to make smoothies for women with different proteins and liquids to use) Here are all the ingredients to the smoothie I made in my video!

  • 1/2-1 Cup Ice
  • 1-2 Cups Milk/Water
  • 1-2 Cups Strawberries
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Whey Isolate Protein (30g)
  • 1/3 Scoop Vanilla Casein Protein (8g)
  • 1 Shot of Water 
Just remember, breakfast is an important meal and sets up your eating schedule for the day- you want to have a very nutritious and big breakfast to propel you into your day with energy and a nice satisfied stomach! Now you already know about what you use for a base, whether it be MILK, or WATER, or some other liquids I have yet to cover in my videos, therefore, I will not include them in the ingredient list for this smoothie. With that said, here are some ingredients I SUGGEST to include in your breakfast smoothie-
  • 1 Cup Ice
  • Protein Powder (any type)
  • Liquid Egg Whites
  • Breakfast Essentials 
  • Steel-Cut or Regular Oats 
  • Fat Free Cool Whip 
  • Any Vitamins or Supplements You Take In Powder Form (Glutamine, Creatine, MSM, Fat Burners, Energy Boosters, etc)
  • Healthy Cereals Preferably High In Protein
  • 1-2 Cups Frozen or Chopped Fruit (any)
Like I said, you can use the same base for every smoothie! The snack smoothie is going to be the lightest smoothie of the 3 I covered in this video because it is a "in-between-meals" snack. You want to cut back on your base, and not add as much of each ingredient you use. I will include the base in the ingredient list so you understand not to use as much as you would in the breakfast and post-workout smoothies! So here are some ingredients I would recommend for a snack smoothie-
  • 1/2 Cup Ice
  • 1 Cup Milk/water
  • 1 Cup Mixed/Chopped Fruit (any)
  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder (any type)
  • Liquid Egg Whites
  • Fat Free Cool Whip
  • Any Vitamins Or Supplements You Take In Powder Form (Glutamine, Creatine, MSM, Fat Burners, Energy Boosters, etc)
There you have it! My ingredients for my POST-WORKOUT PROTEIN SMOOTHIE and my ingredients I would use in a BREAKFAST/SNACK PROTEIN SMOOTHIE as well! Hope all of you  enjoyed the video and the delicious shake! Don't forget ladies- I will be covering a video STRICTLY for you guys covering different liquids to use for your base, different protein powders for women, different ingredients, fat burners, etc! Stayed tuned and please subscribe to my channel if you haven't yet! Thank you!
