Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie Recipe


There are all kinds of protein shakes, smoothies and recipes out there, so naturally there are so many questions. Which ones work, which ones taste good, which ones won't get you sick, which ones will make you feel like a million bucks.

I am not a registered dietician nor am I a nutritionist, so all I can do is talk about one of my personal favorite protein smoothie recipe.

Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie Recipe:
1/2 Cup - Ice Cubes
1 - Medium/Large Banana
1 1/4 Cup - Fat Free Milk
1 Packet - Chocolate Banana Smoothie Mix
1 Scoop - Protein Powder


Preparation: LESS THAN 5min
1. Place ice, banana, smoothie mix and protein powder in a blender.
2. Add milk.
3. Blend for 60-90 seconds.
4. Pour and enjoy.

Depending on what you like for your smoothie preferences and your activity needs:
- Add more ice for crunchy, cooler smoothie.
- Less ice for more frothy taste.
- Use whey protein for higher satiety.
