Back in the days of what everyone called “the gym”, Lifestyle Fitness, we sold protein shakes and developed our own recipe for a basic protein shake or what some call a smoothie. Originally I felt that smoothies were shakes sans protein but now I use the terms ‘smoothie’ and ‘protein shake’ interchangeably. Personally my favorite proteinless drink is wine, lol but sometimes after a long day in the yard gardening, a smoothie without protein seems to quench my thirst best!
Here is our secret recipe from back then…
- 1 frozen banana, chopped into chunks
- 1 scoop Fit Foods Whey Gourmet, Vanilla (I use their North Coast Naturals Iso Protein 100)
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
Add all together and blend until smooth
- Add 1 Tbsp chia/flax seeds
- Omit berries and add 1 Tbsp natural peanut/other nut butter/cocoa powder
