Morning Protein Blast

Morning Protein Blast

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 or 2 scoops vanilla flavored protein powder
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter
  • 3 or 4 drops Stevia liquid (natural sweetener) - optional
  • 4 or 5 ice cubes
I enjoyed this smoothie quite a bit. I was surprised how much chocolate flavor was imparted by the cocoa powder. I didn't use the optional sweetener because my bananas were super ripe and provided plenty of sweetness on their own. After I made the smoothie, I wanted it to be a little thicker so I added one more banana. I actually use frozen bananas. Whenever I have bananas that that are looking more brown than yellow, I immediately freeze them. Later on, a 30 second dunk in hot water makes them easy to peel and ready for the blender. I compared the flavor with one banana versus two bananas. I recommend using two. This smoothie kept me full and energized for about 3 hours before hunger set in again.

There is Almond Butter, and other nut butters (I have seen them in natural/organic/whole food stores). Just make sure it specifies that it's peanut-free.

Try to puriee your favorite nut in a food processor. It will eventually make a paste.

I am allergic to peanuts and peanut by products. Is there anything I can substitute for the peanut butter?
