Recipe | Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake

Pin It Print Friendly and PDF

For those of you who are fitness buffs like me, protein shakes are a must. Even if you're not hitting the gym on a regular basis, protein is still a must-have in your diet. Most studies suggest that the average adult needs between 40 to 55 grams of protein each day. 

The icing on the cake (or on the protein shake, I guess?) is that this recipe makes one mean yet delicious shake. I often crave it. Proof that it is delicious.

Picking your protein? There are many options. Look for a Whey protein. Whey protein is the same protein found in milk and is best for post-workout supplements because it is fast-absorbing and as a result can quickly get to work repairing your muscles.Try to get this in your system within 40 minutes of working out if you're using it as a post-workout shake!
 

Want the full recipe? Read on, my friends! :)




Ingredients:
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 1 cup Skim Milk
  • 1 Banana, cut into slices (the actual size of the slices is not important; I just generally cut it up to make the blending go faster)
  • 1 tablespoon Natural or Organic Peanut Butter (regular works too)
  • 2 teaspoons (6 shakes) Ground Cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Blend.
  3. Consume. :)
