Low calorie, healthy protein shake

So anyone that loves milkshakes, protein shakes, or smoothies… this recipe is for you.  It’s one of those things that tastes super high calorie, but surprisingly isn’t at all 🙂

At the same time, it is packed with necessary carbohydrates and proteins that you need after exercise.  Plus, the potassium in the banana will ease soreness in your muscles.  Win win… win!

Okay, so the recipe is quite simple.  You just need:

     1. 1/2 cup almond milk (or any other milk, but regular milk tends to upset my stomach)

     2. 1/2 cup water

     3. 1 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla whey)

     4. 1/2 a frozen banana (it needs to be frozen, otherwise it won’t be thick)

     5. cinnamon to taste (optional)

Just simply put all the ingredients into a blender, and blend for about two minutes.  You really want to make sure the banana is fully incorporated.  (It’s better to blend a little too much than too little in my opinion).

And you are done! 🙂 

This is the perfect answer to a post workout snack.  I cannot stress how important it is to eat between 30 minutes and an hour after a workout.  I’m going to be doing a post on this soon because I think there’s a lot of need to know information about the topic.
