weight gainer shake homemade

A mass gainer shake or weight gainer shake is an easy way of getting in a lot of calories fast. This is perfect for hard gainers ( people who struggle to gain weight) or people who are bulking and are struggling with getting in their daily calories. 

Store bought or online bought mass gainer shakes are inexpensive but are mass-produced and do not always have the highest quality ingredients and could be filled with sugars and unhealthy fats. That’s why I like to make my own homemade mass gainer shake. This way I know what ingredients go into the shake and I know for a fact that the shake is healthy and checks all the macro and calorie goals!

The mass gainer shake or weight gainer shakes are made with products you all have in your kitchen. So nothing special, really simple. So keep on reading for the best mass gainer shake recipe to gain weight fast!

Who Should Take Mass Gainer Shakes

Mass gainer shakes are perfect for people who want to gain weight and build muscle, but struggle with gaining weight or just struggle with putting down a lot of calories on a daily basis. I often hear this from people who live a very active lifestyle or people who don’t have a desk job.

Some people have high a very active metabolism, which means they burn calories really fast. And the only way to gain weight is to consume more calories than you burn.

For example, if you’re a male, and your maintenance calories are 2500 calories you’ll need to eat in a surplus of at least 200 calories a day to gain weight.

Getting all those calories from whole foods and high-quality meat can be a real struggle, especially when you don’t have time to cook all day, or have the finances to do so.

That’s when mass gainer shakes come in. They’ll add a quick 1000-1200 calories per shake. 1 scoop is around 300-400 calories but we’re going to make our own homemade mass gainer shake.

When you’re making your own mass gainer you want to make sure you track what you put in. 

You don’t want to find out after you’ve made the mass gainer shake that you’ve put too little of everything and end up with not enough calories.

The whole purpose of the mass gainer shake is to get in a lot of calories at once, but you also want to make it high in protein and other macronutrients. 

When you’re bulking you need to eat A LOT so you don’t want foods that are high in fiber or very high voluminous foods. 

The foods need to digest quickly so that you’re ready for your next meal.

Ingredients mass gainer shakes

The key to a great home made mass gainer shake are the ingredients you use. The foods you should use should be very calorie dense foods. The key is to not create massive volume because that will make you feel full, and when you’re on a bulking diet you’re going to eat massive amounts of food and can’t be eating a lot voluminous foods or meals. 

The following foods are perfect for your home made mass gainer shakes:

  • Full fat milk
  • Peanut butter
  • Oats
  • oils ( olive oil, nut seed oils etc )
  • Whey protein or any other protein powders
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Bananas
  • Honey
  • Ice cream

I highly recommend getting a high-quality blender as you’re using a lot of ingredients. Also, have I noticed that normal sized blenders don’t cut it size-wise. Your shake is going to be big so you’re going to need a big blender. 

I used to have the small 1 person sized Nutribullet which is amazing, but for these large mass gainer shakes it’s essential to have a good larger one.

This blender is a bit on the more expensive side, but it’s seriously amazing, and buying a high-quality blender once saves you money in the long run

Vegan Mass Gainer Shake Homemade

The previous 2 mass gainer shakes were shakes that included dairy, but I wanted to provide you with a shake for the people that are lactose intolerant or vegan.

This weight gainer shake is still high in protein so don’t worry about that.
