144 Of The Best Whey Protein Shake Recipes

In honor of Eugen Sandow’s upcoming birthday on April 2nd I offer you 144 of the top high protein shakes for muscle gain and weight loss! For more on whey protein checkout our comprehensive guide to the best affordable protein powders on the market.

For those who haven’t heard of Eugen Sandow, he’s basically THE man generally regarded as the “Father of Modern Bodybuilding. He may also have been the first European man to rock the leopard print shorts, but who knows.


Eugen Sandow  was born in Konigsberg, Prussia on April 2, 1867. He ultimately left Prussia in 1885 to avoid military service, and in 1889 he made his first appearance on the London stage. In the beginning of his career he was a typical strongman, lifting large amounts of weight, and performing fantastic feats of strength in front of awe struck audiences.

That all changed when Sandow’s employer, Florenz Ziegfeld, promptly realized that audiences were far more fascinated by Sandow’s bulging muscles than by the amount of weight he was lifting. It wasn’t long before Eugen Sandow became Ziegfeld’s first star with his “muscle display performances”. Well, the name could use some work, but the concept was born, and has since blossomed into the giant world of bodybuilding.

It’s important to note that Sandow’s likeness to the physiques found in classical Greek and Roman sculpture was no accident. He actually took the time to measure the Greek and Roman statues in various museums, which in turn allowed him develop his body to precise proportions that have since become known as “The Grecian Ideal”. Keep in mind this is long before supplements, and the convenience of whey protein shakes.  Amazing!

  1. Really? 144 protein shake recipes? That is one hell of a list Matt. Very interesting sortable data grid you’ve got there too.

    1. Thank you Steve! It took quite a bit of time to find and edit them all together.

      Since I went through all the trouble, I figured I’d better make a goal of trying each one.

      We’ll see…

      -Matt

  2. That’s one impressive list! Some of these look absolutely delicious, too. Replacing my morning coffee with that Iced Mocha Latte probably wouldn’t be a bad idea…

    1. Yeah, my mouths been watering since I first started compiling the coffee part of the list. I make a point of having a protein shake within 30 minutes of waking up every morning, so why not combine the two??? K..k..killer combo! 🙂

      -Matt

  3. Brilliant list, and really use full. Take me a while to get through these!

    Nice article.
