Enjoy this delicious banana protein shake that is one of the best protein shakes I’ve ever had.
Yay! It’s time for another protein shake recipe!
Homemade 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.
How Much Protein is in a Banana?
Did you know an average banana contains 3% of your daily value of protein? Meaning, this banana protein shake is not only super delicious, but it’s also full of banana protein-y goodness. And who doesn’t love banana protein-y goodness?
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 protein shake <— we enjoy often 🙂
It’s super delicious, and is full of 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).
How To Make Protein Shakes Taste Better
I’ve found that adding some cinnamon helps to bring out the protein shake’s subtle, but oh-so-tasty flavor.
Cinnamon, is there anything you’re NOT fabulous on? You just win me over every time.
Additionally, the protein powder you choose really makes a difference. The more fake and chalky the protein powder, the more — wait for it — fake and chalky your protein shake will taste. It’s science.
We recommend Naked Protein powders.
How to Make a Protein Shake
Making a protein shake couldn’t be easier and is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a filling, healthy, and fast breakfast. Just toss everything into the blender and blend until smooth. You can also freeze all your ingredients ahead of time to make it even quicker – check out these fruit smoothie freezer packs to get started.
