Lets have your recipes for low-calorie(*) protein shakes!

So I'm actively losing weight by scaling back on calories. This is good.
I'm mixing in(ugh) a low-calorie protein shake for breakfast. I'm starting to tire of the 8oz 2% milk, 1 scoop chocolate whey protein + the banana shake. That thoroughly fills me up and is under 300 calories(**).
I have chocolate and vanilla protein powder at my disposal. Sometimes I mix in a little bit of Adams peanut butter but that adds another 100 calories (but its sooooo yummy!).
I'm also thinking of trying a protein shake for lunch or at least when I get hungry during the middle of the day.
Sooooo, the hive, what are some other options that have worked for you? (Approximate) calorie counts would be helpful.
* and **: Yes, I said low calorie; no I dont know if 300 calories is considered low-calorie or not. I do know that this regimen is working for me in terms of weight-loss. I am also a rather active cyclist/basketball player(albeit heavy). I'm trying to consume ~2000 calories/day. Sometimes I require additional calories because I'm just famished from riding 3 hours the day before. hope this helps.
