Protein shakes?

Weight today was much better - 157. Thats a pound loss from Wednesday so I am thrilled about that. TOM really puts a cramp (and actual cramps as well), in my weighins but at least when its over, I see a nice loss. I am getting excited to take my measurements this month because Ive been feeling great and am hoping this EA Active is doing its job. Im just about complete with the 30 day challenge, so it will be a good time to check in and see if its working for me.

So I need to ask if anyone has a good and FAST recipe for a protein shake for the morning. Ive been drinking the same one for about 1.5 years now 3 times a week and Im just plain old tired of it. I would love some suggestions on anything that you love and that is FAST and I stress fast because I have little time in the morning so I need something fast and easy to whip up or something that could be made the night before that would still taste great the next day. Let me know! I look forward to hearing some of the things you all like.

Easiest way to make a fast protein shake is get a mason jar and throw all the crap in it and blend it in the jar. Some blenders have the same threads, it's awesome!

I like going with chocolate protein, some peanut butter, skim milk, maybe a banana...

I honestly usually just have the protein powder and water or skim milk, so I don't have any great recipes... But it doesn't get much easier...

I don't usually pimp my own blog in other people's comments, and I hope you'll forgive this one. When I asked for recipes prior to oral surgery, I got a ton of recipes. Here's a link to that post:

Ohh..I can't wait to read Cammy's replies. I have been looking into this lately and have been having one shake a day lately, myself! We got "The Magic Bullet" but haven't used it yet..we use a regular blender. I say we b/c my hubby has been making "smoothies"for a while..but I just got into the act. I am know using Herbalife, b/c they sponsor the TBL that I am doing..but I have gotten recommendations from others that I will be trying. My herbalife one is chocolate and they gave me SO many ideas and recipes on how to make it fun and yummy. I usually make a snickers one or a choc banana one. Do you want the recipes? I can find a link for you. The Herbalife is 9 g of protien and 17 w a cup of skim milk. I just ordered a sampler of syntrax nectar. What do you use?
