Shake Recipes to Gain Weight

HELPFUL TIPS

Want to up the protein? Buy protein powder to mix into the shakes. There are a variety of flavors available for purchase; however, the taste can often be hard to handle, especially for kids, so make sure to only sprinkle it in before the taste test.

Need sweetness? Add honey and coconut oil for the sugary taste yet a healthy intake.

Need something new? Add club soda, Sprite, or ginger ale to turn your shake into a float.
