Chocolate Banana Protein Shake
Chocolate and banana go hand in hand. The combination is just what I want some mornings. A great filling breakfast that is easy to take on the way to work can be a true lifesaver!
How Much Protein In Banana Alone?
According to the USDA, there is about 1 gram of protein in a medium banana. Bananas, even if high in sugar, have a lot of nutrition and make a wonderful food choice. For this recipe, adding in the additional protein powder is a must, but don’t discount the fact that many of your favorite fruits will also have some protein.
Can I Use Banana Protein Powder in this Smoothie?
When making this chocolate banana protein shake, you can decide to make it a banana shake instead. You can use banana protein powder instead of using the chocolate or you can do half of scoop of each. If you only have banana protein powder and want to still have the chocolate flavor, you can add unsweetened cocoa to this recipe.
