Protein shakes often feel like "Dessert ... for Lunch!" to me. Or ... for Breakfast, but ... I digress.

I love these things. Almost too much, frankly! These really hit the spot, but I confess to feeling like they cause me cravings. I'm not sure why, and I tend to blame the yogurt, but ... they're quick, filling and extremely delicious. Just go into it knowing that it may cause some cravings that you'll need to will yourselves through.

I tried this tonight but instead of using the protein powder I added an avocado and some almond extract. It was good but waaaaaay to salty. Not sure if I measured it properly. I even added more yogurt, cream and ice but still was not good. I will try it again tomorrow with no salt at all.  I could tell that if it was not so salty it would have been very good.

I have two questions about this if you have the time.

First, what kind of yogurt do you get that has 5g of carbs per half cup?  I just got back from a middle eastern market where I purchased a full fat, plan Greek yogurt and it has 22g or carbs/cup. That is almost twice as  much as what you have listed.

My second question this, is there a substitute for the vanilla whey you have listed?

Thank you.

Do you guys ever sell these books in a discount bundle? I bought what I thought was a bundle of low carbing among friends but ended up with splended low carbing. A link at the bottom of your order form on the web site. My fault for not looking closer but I think that link should be removed or make it obvious to the buyer its not low carbing among friends but jenifer. So anyway is there a bundle of low carbing amongst friends?

Hi Steve, unfortunately, I do not know the answer to this question. I am not the publisher and am unclear how the books are sold. I suggest asking on the LCAF's Facebook page or the website. There is a "Contact us" button on their website. You could send an email to learn more. I am sorry you didn't get what you were looking for! Hopefully they'll understand and be willing to trade. Good luck with it!

Thanks, Frank. I agree ... the cream helps thicken it up and ... well ... makes it more creamy! Maybe something like coconut milk could work, though ... or MimicCreme, but with the yoghurt and whey protein ... might as well just use cream. Thanks for the input, Frank!
