low carb, high protein shakes

I am looking for some good low carb / high protein shake recipes. Lately when I eat lunch I get tired for the rest of the afternoon. So my plan is to have a nutritious smoothie at lunch and then walk for a bit.

I really like the orange mango smoothie at starbucks and here is the recipe from yahoo answers.

Blend the following:
Orange Mango Naked juice
1 banana
protein powder
1/3 C ice

However I just looked up the nutrition info and it has 57g of carbs and only 16g of protein. Eeek!

Be careful if you start eating heaps of protein because you will start craving sugar. And you don't want to eat protein and sugar together. I think if you start eating a hard boiled egg or 2 for lunch and maybe a salad that might help. Walking around will definately wake you up!
