I’ve always had yoga instructors and workout coaches tell me that protein was important. But I always had trouble finding a shake that was delicious, and didn’t have a ton of calories. Many protein powders are made for body builders who spend all day in the gym. But I just wanted a refreshing snack that would help me recover from a run or yoga session.
You many not have all the ingredients readily available in your pantry… but I promise the products are worth it.
You can use any protein powder you like. I recommend something that’s vanilla or plain flavored. My personal favorite it Vega “Viva Vanilla” it’s 80 calories and 15 grams of protein per serving. To top it off I LOVE the flavor. But use whatever you’d like!
What you’ll need:
-One Scoop of Vega “Viva Vanilla” Protein Powder (Or your personal favorite)
-1 1/2 Bananas (Tip: Freeze the banana for a smoothie consistency. For a regular shake, use fresh bananas)
-2 tbsps of Peanut Butter Slim (powdered peanut butter. PB Fit is another great brand! low calorie and gives a great peanut butter flavor!)
-1 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (I used the “So Delicious” brand)
-Add water as needed. (Powder can be a little gritty without a little extra liquid. Add a little water to make the consistency smoother)
Blend all the ingredients together and enjoy!
