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.

Which one of these protein shakes is your favorite?
Banana Protein Shake
- 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
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.
