The Big Boy Drink

For the hard core weight gainers:

  • 2 quarts skim milk
  • 2 cups skim milk powder
  • 5 tablespoons peanut butter
  • ½ pint chocolate ice-cream
  • 2 bananas
  • 6 tablespoons corn syrup

This drink is heavy mass gain recipe. If you are looking out for a big change in your physique opt for this drink.

Pina Colada Smoothie, for a nice and relaxing weight gaining drink

  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 vanilla instant breakfast powder
  • 2 scoops of vanilla whey protein powder
  • 6 ounces low- fat pina colada yogurt
  • ½ cup crushed pineapple in natural juice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • ½ tablespoon rum extract
  • 5 ice cubes

This particular one is not as strong as the first one and is a nice refreshing re-arrangement of the famous Pina Colada drink. The protein level and the calories are lesser than the first and can be consumed by people looking for an average weight gain.

Peanut Butter Shake

  • 9 ounces of skim milk
  • 1 packet instant breakfast powder   
  • 2 bananas

Peanut butter being high in protein always helps in the weight gain that you want for yourself. This is an easy way to increase weight and does not need too many ingredients.
