When it comes to post-workout smoothies I'm looking for a good shot of protein, some clean carbs, and something I don't have to choke down. I'm also looking for something quick and easy. As a blogging, homeschooling, wanna-be-farmering mama ain't nobody got time for complicated post-workout nutrition. I'm lucky enough to sneak in a workout!
I think I've come up with the perfect post-workout smoothie recipe! This Banana Cream Pie Protein Smoothie is completely delicious (yes, the name is a perfect description), packed with protein, and the banana adds some great after workout carbs. Plus, it's only 3 ingredients and beyond easy. Did I mention it's really yummy?!
OK, perfect for me, and I am obsessed with it post-workout lately. It's just so quick, easy, and delicious. I think you'll love it to. Post-workout or anytime you want a healthy protein-packed treat.
A huge thanks to BiPro for sending protein powder for this recipe!
If you haven't tried BiPro I highly recommend it. It's a super clean, gluten-free, stevia-sweetened whey protein isolate. BiPro blends great in just a shaker cup for a simple protein shake or is very versatile in recipes too. Plus, it's American made, which is important to me. The French Vanilla is my favorite flavor and completely delicious in this smoothie recipe!
1 medium Organic Dole banana sliced and frozen
1 1/2 scoops French Vanilla BiPro Whey Protein Isolate
Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. I told you it was beyond easy! It will take you longer to clean the blender than make this ;)
As part of my weekly food prep I slice and freeze bananas on a tray and then put them in individual bags to use throughout the week.
If you'd like you can add a little spray whip for a treat as pictured.
Let me know if you try it!
