Had a bit of a flavor party last night

This entry is part 37 of 176 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

I ordered a bunch of 2 lb tubs of the various flavors and mixed them up into Keto Chow last night: Chocolate Fudge, Pina Colada, Smooth Banana, Cookies and Cream and the staple Chocolate Mint, Strawberry and Vanilla.

Bunch Of FlavorsNot pictured is “Rich Chocolate” – I got the 10 lb bag of that one. I then mixed Rich Chocolate, Pina Colada and Smooth Banana up in blender bottles for today’s food. I did a quick taste test this morning. The Rich Chocolate is significantly more chocolaty than the mint chocolate (like really, really chocolate). The Pina Colada tastes like what it is: Pineapple and Coconut. The Smooth Banana is a bit odd: It mixed up really thin, almost like there’s no xanthan gum in it. It doesn’t look like I messed up on mixing the powder but I’m going to try doing a smaller 1-day batch tonight to double check. It could be it’s got some enzyme or something in it that prevents the xanthan gum from thickening it up. It still tastes good.

EDIT: So I planned to drink the rich chocolate for breakfast and somehow grabbed the banana instead. Drank it. Yes it’s still not quite as thick as the other flavors but it’s not as thin as I thought it was, I don’t think it’s going to be an issue.

    I ordered two 5lb jugs of Dymatize Elite, one Rich Chocolate and one Strawberry. Ideally, I’d like to be able to simply throw all the other ingredients into the jug (aside from oil and heavy cream), shake and be good to go for daily drink creation. I don’t suppose you happen to have the recipe for 2lb and 5lb jugs or happen to know exactly how many days/servings are in a 2lb and 5lb jug, do you? The DIY recipe link has day and week sliders, but no way to go beyond that and make it for brand new jugs of protein powder in their entirity. I’ve only just tapped into the Rich Chocolate (on my 3rd full day of Keto Chow 1.0.3) and haven’t touched the Strawberry yet, so I’d like to be able to mix it and go.

    Thanks!

      Well, a 5lb tub is 2270g and the 2lb is 907g. You put 110g of protein in each daily serving so the 5lb has 20.63636363636_ days worth and the 2lb has 8.245454545454_ days worth. You would just multiply the other ingredients by those amounts to have it match.
