BANANA PROTEIN SHAKE
Yay! It’s time for another protein shake recipe!
Homemade protein shakes are a great way to quickly get all sorts of protein as well as fill you up for a meal replacement. I like to have a protein shake every morning for breakfast. They take less than 5 minutes to make and are super delicious.
HOW TO MAKE PROTEIN SHAKES TASTE BETTER
I’ve found that adding some cinnamon helps to bring out the protein shake subtle, but oh-so-tasty flavor.
Cinnamon, is there anything you’re NOT fabulous on? You just win me over every time.
Additionally, the protein powder you choose really makes a difference. The more fake and chalky the protein powder, the more — wait for it — fake and chalky your protein shake will taste. It’s science.:
- 1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup plain full fat Greek yogurt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
- ice as needed
Add the unsweetened almond milk, full fat plain greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, frozen banana, and ground cinnamon into a blender.
Blend until smooth.
If you find your shake is too thick, you can always add some more almond milk, little by little, to the blender.
While you don’t have to use a frozen banana for this protein shake, I recommend it because it will make the texture creamier and thicker and will make it so you don’t have to use much, if any extra ice which will dilute the flavor.
