How can I reduce the calories in a snack made with designer whey protein?
There is no magic formula to weight loss other than burning more calories than you consume. One strategy to minimize calories is by trying to add 4 ounces of Skim Plus milk and some ice in a blender with the protein powder. You can add an artificial sweetener like splenda for flavor and this will limit the calories to a total of 155 calories per serving. It is acceptable to add fresh fruit and make it more of a smoothie. In order to limit calories use 1/2 cup fresh berries. Make sure the berries if frozen have no added sugar. One cup of fresh strawberries sliced is only 50-60 calories. This will keep the shake at around 200 calories.
