    If you freeze your berries, you don’t have to add the ice, and it tastes SOOO much better!
    It’s good both ways, but try it with frozen berries and no ice, and see which one you like best. :)

  2. Joshua Says:

    What exactly is Mega Green Powder?

  3. Fitness Guardian Says:

    Mega Green Powder contains a formulation of grasses (wheat, barely), fibrous herbs, plant proteins and other green vegetables. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It also has a high concentration of chlorophyll.

    It is low glycemic and very alkaline which reduces acidity in the body and blood to enhance health. It’s very nutrient dense and great for people who seek maximum nutrition in minimum calories. Also great for people who don’t eat a lot of vegetables.

    There is a link beneath the post to get all the ingredients in Jackie Warner’s protein shake…

  4. Monika Tobolski Says:

    Any chance I could buy similar shake or ready to go?

  5. Yvette Says:

    I am wanting to make Jackie’s Protein Shake, I see that there are several choices for each ingredient, is there any difference in them? What should I look for? Is there any one you recommend more than the others.

  6. a Says:

    How many calories are in this shake?

  7. Jordan Says:

    What is liquid amino acid and can it be optional while making the protein shake? And also, Can I use other frozen fruits or non-frozen fruits besides berries?

  8. Fitness Guardian Says:

    There’s a lot of flexibility with the ingredients in this shake. You can skip the liquid amino acids as the whey protein is a great source of essential amino acids (BTW – amino acids are the building blocks of protein) so from a nutrient perspective you are covered.

    Regarding the frozen fruit – yes you can substitute. Berries tend to be higher in antioxidants and phytonutrients than fruit but the mega green powder has you covered there…

    I’m lactose intolerant is there another protein powder just a effective?

  10. Christina Says:

    I like it!! i WILL HAVE TO GET USE TO IT BUT YEA!!! iTS GOOD!!

  11. Melody Says:

    I can’t believe someone is selling this receipe on eBay and people are stupid enough to buy it when it is out in cyberspace for free.

  12. Jessica Says:

    I found it to be very thick…when I put the berries in it was very hard to blend so I added ice and water.
    Overall, it’s decent, but not great….something is giving it a funky flavor I don’t know if it’s the flaxseed oil which does not smell that great…

    I will try again and play around with it.
    Thanks everyone, I couldn’t believe it when I did a search and found EBay…

  13. Tina Says:

    I LOVED the shake!!But I do have a question.When I made the shake it filled the whole blender.How much of the shake is considered to be one serving?

  14. Sandy Says:

    I omitted the amino acids on the recommendation of my local healthfood sales associate, she said the taste probably would not be good to include in a shake and that the protien powder should be sufficient. I found that adding water helps with blending. The green powder gives it an odd aftertaste, but, with these indredients, I knew it wouldn’t taste all that great. It’s doing good things for my body though – and just take a look at Jackie Warner . . . drink up!

  15. gloria Says:

    I’m a beginner at this. I think I’m allergic to protein powder. Are they all made the same? I don’t remember the brand that I used a few years back but it flavored. I drank it every morning for about 3 weeks and noticed that I had an itchiness all over my chest and neck area the whole time and it stopped the day after I stopped taking the powder. If I am allergic to it, what I can do? Also, is it ok to put orange juice in the shake instead of water or should I just stick with water? Maybe this is a dumb question…but why are protein powders and green powders so expensive? It isn’t cheap to try to be healty is it!!

  16. wendy Says:

    Hey there, I am currently pregnant and looking to start the breakfast shake after the baby to get my body in a better health state for energy and stamina for my soon to be 2 kids, and I just wanted to know as Tina above had asked what amount of the shake you should actually be drinking each morning?
    Thanks, and cheers!

  17. Tiffany Says:

    Does anyone if using a powder form of flax seed and amino acids will suffice? I think it cuts out those odd tastes that everyone is talking about.

  18. Dana Says:

    How many servings is this shake?

  19. Jennifer Says:

    I am wanting to give this shake a try. However, I form kidney stones and have had 4 from 1998 to 2004. I was wondering if the ingredients in this shake are okay for me to use? They say that “slim fast” is known to cause the formation of kidney stones especially in those people who have a history of stone formation.

  20. Heather Says:

    I am thinking about drinking the shake every morning. I was just wondering if it makes you go # 2 a lot?? It just sounds like it will.


  21. Brenna Says:

    Hi, my mom and I started drinking this and have a couple questions. #1 How much is a serving size? As stated above it does fill the entire blender. It is a lot for even two of us. When you look at the actual recipe it calls for 1 tbsp of liquid aminos. If you look at the bottle the amount per serving only calls for 1/2 a tsp. 1/2 tsp has 150 mg of sodium. When you do the math we are consuming 900 mgs of sodium. I have highblood pressure and would prefer my salt otherways. The #2 question would it be okay to drop the amount of the amino acids?

  22. Fitness Guardian Says:

    Hi Brenna,

    Sounds like you need to cut the recipe in half. Let satiety be your guide with regard to serving size. The key is getting quality protein, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients into your body. No need to drink more if you’re full.

    As for sodium intake – you can reduce or even cut out the liquid amino acids. The whey protein provides them as well. In my opinion, the liquid amino acids contribute the least to the nutrient value of the shake.

    Hope this helps…

  23. carmen Says:

    Does anyone know if super green powder is the same as mega green powder?

  24. Fitness Guardian Says:

    Hi Carmen,

    From what I can tell – the products are very similar. Both supply numerous forms of greens (both vegetable and plant) that provide the key phytonutrients and enzymes.

  25. Alyson Says:

    I have tons of Soy Protien Powder, can I use that instead of Whey? Also what is the difference (aside from soy being soy and whey being whey)?

  26. Fitness Guardian Says:

    Your soy protein will work fine. The difference between soy and whey protein is that soy comes from plants and has plant estrogens in it. Alyson – (Some research has shown plant estrogens can potentially reduce muscle development.)

    Whey is a milk based protein and tends to have better absorption by the body.

    The most important aspect of a protein supplement is that it’s complete. Complete protein provides the essential amino acids our bodies do not manufacture. Both soy and whet protein are complete. So you you should be fine with either…

  27. Tracy Says:

    I was just wondering how everything is mixed together in Jakie Warners Protein shake? I tried making it this morning and it was kind of dry. Thanks


  28. Cherish Says:

    I want to know… besides the shake for breakfast what are some foods you could eat for lunch and dinner…?? Anyone care to share their daily food intake give us an idea… what we SHOULD be eating in one day…??

    Thanks all…
    Drexel HIll, PA.

  29. Cherish Says:

    This is for Brenna… and… Jennifer above… You should not be using Protien shakes of anykind with Kidney stones it helps to form them. You need to 1. Consult with your surgeons or whomever helped remove the problem the first time. 2. You must be drinking a fair amount of water each day to wash the protien from your kidney’s (system)… 2 maybe three qrts daily.

    Brenna… 2,000 mg of soduim is normal a day for people who do NOT have high B/P… see if you can find this item without or lower in sodium… what works for one person doesn’t mean it will for the next. Everyone wants to try it because everyone wants Jackie’s body… that won’t happen either. Be smart… ask the doctor if he can switch BP Meds… but nothing you can not stopm at will… without it skyrocketing… good luck to all!

  30. Cherish Says:

    Hey Jennifer… did you start getting Kidney Stones after or before using Jackies shake…?? Thanx! Good health!

  31. Cherish Says:

    Hi Tracy!

    Use like a cup of water… see how the consistency is… add or subtract water to your desire… make sure you drink lots of water during the day… protein can cause kidney stones… and/or worse…

  32. Eric Says:

    Hey i have a question for anyone who can answer!

    I have used the shake for over 3 months now, and it works GREAT! i feel more optimistic and filled with energy throughout the day. but in my shake, I use all the required ingredients, except I use rice protein instead of whey or soy. The protein per serving/scoop is 15 g of protein. Is this still as effective as using whey powder?


  33. gary Says:

    how many calories are in this monster?

  34. rachel Says:

    Hello everyone, this shake sounds good, although I havn’t tried it..if i am on the go sometimes i would blend blueberries with a scoop of whey protein isolate and water…..also substituting all natural peanut butter to this….the only queshtion I have is what’s the point of the liquid amino acids when u are already adding a scoop of whey protein? Anyone know?

  35. Rodeny Says:

    When i dont have fresh berries i use frozen berries and dont need to add ice. But it doesnt blend very well so I added Simply Lemonade as liquid to get it to blend and it actually kinda cuts out the aftertaste of the Mega Green powder.

  36. becky Says:

    I was just wondering if you are only suppose to drink the shake in the morning or is one that you can drink throughout the day as a snack shake?

  37. madonna Says:

    I have insulin dependent diabetes, due to being obese. My kidneys failed, I had a transplant four years ago, and I am concerned overloading my new kidney with protein. Is this shake okay for me? Please, fitness guardian?

  38. Fitness Guardian Says:

    madonna – I applaud your pursuit of improving your health and fitness. In a situation like yours it’s essential to work with your doctor to establish dietary guidelines for your specific situation. You need to get a handle on what your doctor believes is the proper daily protein intake for you.

    For reference when you speak with your doctor – The protein shake in the above post will vary in amount of protein it provides depending on what brands of ingredients you make it with. Typically – a scoop of whey protein powder has between 15 & 25 grams of protein. The amino acids can add about 10 more grams (again more or less depending on the brand). Best of luck!

  39. Leann Says:


    I just bought all the products to make this shake. Of course, I didn’t read the products until after I bought, but I’m a vegetarian and looked used to drink whey protein shakes, but made sure that I bought one without the use of animals bones (hydrolyzed gelatin) and would prefer no eggs, but don’t necessarily mind. Amino Acid Fuel has hydrolyzed gelatin… any other options besides excluding it? I’ve read that amino acid helps hair growth, etc. and I have PCOS, which thins hair, and I was hoping to use this for my health as well as benefit hair growth. Thanks for your help!

  40. Kim Says:

    HI, I am very interested in trying the protein shake. I am also trying to find out once drinking the shake what would be a good lunch and dinner? Also several people asked about calorie count with the shake. I am interested in this as well. I need to get into shape and start loosing the weight that keeps creeping up on me. I want to be healthy and this sounds like a good start. I also work third shift so time is of the essence. I find it difficult to get on a “normal ” eating schedule because of my job.

    Any suggestions will help.


  41. Wendy Moore Says:

    Does anyone know how many calories are in the shake? And is it one serving or two? I have read a couple people ask these questions but have not seen a response. If I missed it …. please someone direct me to it.


  42. Kristin Says:

    For Calories, lets just add up the ingredients (estimated):
    2 cups organic berries: 120 cal
    1 scoop whey protein: 110
    1 tb mega green : 44
    1 tb flax seed oil: 130
    1 tb liquid aminos (I’ve seen everything from 0-100 in my search)
    So, lets estimate the whole shake is about 400-450 calories. It sounds like a lot for women, but if it’s all the right ingredients maybe that’s okay – and Jackie looks great!!

  43. Christine Says:

    Hi everyone,
    I am using this shake, and I really do like it. It makes a LOT, so I drink about 8 oz for breakfast, and then keep the rest in an insulated cup and drink it throughout the morning. I’m aiming for five small meals/day, and this shake gives me two of them. If you have a sensitive palate, the taste will be a struggle for you. My husband won’t drink it; he’s sensitive like that! I, on the other hand, have no problem with it. I do recommend berries because of their nutritional value, plus they seem to mask the other flavors well. Additionally, be sure to buy HIGH QUALITY protein powder and Green; otherwise, the stuff won’t mix well at all. My ingredients cost about $100, but they should last quite awhile.

  44. Ashley Says:

    I work out in the late evenings( between 8 and 10), and I am still confused if I should drink the protein shake in the morning for breakfast, but that would be almost 11 hours before I work out… Or should I drink the protein shake after my workout in the evening and substitute my dinner with the shake??
    Please help! I do eat protein with all my meals through out the day. I am just trying to find out what time is better to drink the shake…..
