Home Made Weight Gainer Shake


Everybody knows you need to calories to grow, right? Many people turn to weight gainers shakes to fill in the nutritional gaps. The problem with that is these supplements tend to be overprices and not offer a very good cost/serving ratio. This article will show you how to make your own weight gainer shake from low cost ingredients you can pick up at the grocery store and a tub of your favorite whey protein.

Step 1:
Buy a coffee grinder. They are cheap and you can buy them almost anywhere. I bought one at Target but anyplace like Wal mart will have them.

Step 2:
Go to this website and use the store locater to find a retailer close to you to purchase this product. This stuff is gold. 560 calories per cup and the store by my house sells it for .99 cents a pound!

Look at the nutritional value on this stuff:

Step 3:

Grind oats up with coffee grinder and throw them in your favorite shake. If they oats are took thick in your shake just add more milk/water. I strongly recommend 8oz of liquid to every 1/4 cup of oats. Obviously you will need more milk/water if you add more ingredients like peanut butter or fruit.

EVERY day I have several of the following shakes.

cheap, quick, easy to prepare

16oz ice cold skim milk
1/2 cup ground steel cut oats
1 scoop of ON whey (chocolate)

571 calories
77 grams of carbs
53 grams of protein
7 grams of fat.

Obviously you can experiment with whatever you want to throw in there. Any fruits, peanut butter, etc etc. work perfectly. I like this because it takes me about 1 minute to make. Here's a couple other recipes you could try.

Hard gainer shake

20oz skim milk
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 large banana
1 scoop of whey

899 calories
110 grams of carbs
63 grams of protein
23 grams of fat


Tips:- constantly shake these up in a shaker cup because the oats will settle at the bottom for quickly.
- always drink ice cold!
- if you can not find steel cut oats, old fashioned rolled oats will work. Just don't get any that are "quick" or have sugar. Rolled oats are good just not as calorie dense as the steel cut oats.
