Strawberry Banana Protein Shake Recipe
Y'all know that I love my protein smoothies, and you know that I love them thick and CREAMY like milkshakes! This recipe is one of my absolute faves and it does not disappoint.
It combines a couple of fruits that are likely in your fridge or pantry at home. That means you can whip it up TODAY if you want to!
When you get started, make sure you don’t use any ice when you’re making this one, or you’ll lose that lovely creaminess. Just like my Chocolate Milkshake Protein Smoothie recipe, I’m sure you will LOVE this basic, but totally filling, shake.
Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Protein Shake Recipe
Total time: 4 mins
Dietary preferences: Vegetarian
3/4 cup milk of choice (I use either organic skim or unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice (I use 100% whey isolate)
2 tsp honey
1/2 frozen banana, sliced
1 cup frozen strawberries
1. Add all of the ingredients into your blender in order and then blend together on high speed.
2. Once thoroughly blended, pour the protein shake into a glass to serve.
3. Serve and enjoy immediately.
A chilled glass can help keep this protein shake nice and cold, and stop it getting runny too quickly, especially if you live somewhere warm.
The key to a nice creamy shake is using frozen fruit instead of ice, it gives it the thickest consistency! I usually eat mine with a spoon. :)
Choose a protein powder that suits you
If you’re interested in trying out protein powder, this recipe is a tasty and nutritious way to see if it suits you. There are a lot of different varieties to choose from too, so you might find you prefer one type of protein powder over another.
It’s important to remember that you don’t have to include protein powders as part of a healthy diet if you are training, but I personally enjoy having a protein shake as a convenient post-workout snack.
