One of the best things to add to any smoothie or diet shake recipes is low-fat yogurt. Apart from being delicious, yoghurt also provides large amounts of calcium to help reduce the incidence of osteoperosis in later life. Additionally, several recent scientific studies indicate that a diet rich in calcium may inhibit fat absorption in the small intestine. In the studies, individuals who average an extra 1,250 mg of calcium per day had significantly higher levels of undigested fat in their bowel motions regardless of whether the calcium came from traditional dairy products or calcium supplements. Regardless of whether you make a water (ice) based diet shake or a dairy based diet shake recipe, a small tub of yogurt can add a significant benefit. Apart from adding a nice creamy consistency to your diet shake recipes, it also increases the calcium content AND makes the shake more filling.

If you want to make the shake even more filling, simply add an egg to the recipe… or more specifically an egg white. Egg whites are almost pure protein and protein helps to make you feel fuller for longer… Remember the movie ‘Rocky’ in the 1980s… remember what Rocky had for breakfast every morning… he cracked three eggs into a glass and drank them without even beating them (ewww!). Yet the principle is completely sound. By adding an egg to your diet shake recipes you effectively turn them into protein shake recipes
