Yay! It’s time for another protein shake recipe!
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.
I also try to keep frozen bananas and yogurt on hand to make myself a shake.
This banana protein shake makes it into our breakfast rotation probably every other day, but at least 2-3 times a week. Not sure on the math of that, but I think you get the point. THIS shake <— we enjoy often 🙂
It’s super delicious, and is full of banana protein-y goodness.
And who doesn’t love banana protein-y goodness?
While some of my other shake recipes use a banana, they don’t really accentuate the banana-ness like this one does.
I get asked a lot about what protein powder I recommend. And, really, the truth is…it depends. It depends on your taste, what type of protein you’re looking for, your dietary goals (i.e. vegan, non-dairy, etc.), your price point, and probably a few other categories I’m forgetting.
So, you can see, this is a hard question.
I’m honestly still on the lookout for a clean, high-quality protein that tastes good and isn’t literally worth an arm and a leg (totally meant figuratively, but wanted to make it all dramatic).
I’ve found that adding some cinnamon helps as well to bring out the subtle, but oh-so-tasty flavor.
Cinnamon, is there anything you’re NOT fabulous on? You just win me over every time.
