Post-Strength-Training-Amazingness Shake (or, Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Banana Shake)
After strength training class on Thursday I went out and bought my first protein powder (in chocolate and vanilla for some variety). I just bought the kind that was on sale, so I don’t know if it’s really any good, but it tastes delicious and the nutrition info seemed good to me (so I’m happy). I was in the mood for some chocolate/peanut butter yumminess, and I had some frozen bananas on hand, so this shake was created. After strength training class this morning, I recreated the magic and thought I’d share it with you. Yes, YOU! If you like/love any of these ingredients you should try it out ASAP. It’s amazing. Also, did I mention that it’s less than 300 calories? And chock full of over 25 grams of protein?
- one frozen medium banana (105 calories)
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (100 calories)
- 2 tablespoons PB2 (45 calories)
- 1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk (40 calories)
I use my immersion blender (if you don’t have one, they’re super cheap and very useful. a regular blender would work just fine as well) and just blend all the ingredients up for about 2 minutes. Get a straw and suck that baby down (straw is necessary, in my opinion). This shake is so good, but I’m limiting myself to make it only after doing strength training class. Otherwise, I could be in trouble…
