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 my 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 <— I 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. Personally I recommend SCF Nutrition Whey Protein. But It really depends on your taste, what type of protein you’re looking for, your dietary goals (i.e. vegan, non-dairy, etc.), and probably a few other categories I’m forgetting.

So, you can see, this is a hard question. But for me it isn’t I simply prefer and recommend SCF Nutrition Whey Protein.

I have been 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) and I found that in the current SCF Supplements that I use successfully fulfill that need.

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. So get some good quality protein like SCF Nutrition!
