Second would be to keep the shake as natural as possible. Do not add sweeteners in the form of syrup, flavoring, and ice cream, they will just spike up the low calorie nature of the shake. If you feel like you have to make it sweeter, add as much as two scoops of sugar.
There are those who include protein powder in their shakes, you can also do this as long as you are following a workout routine. Protein is there to help build muscles, but if you are not involved in any type of activity, it can help build more fat.
