This is my go to recipe for my morning protein shake. If you like chocolate and peanut butter (or an alternative nut butter) you are gonna love this one.
¼ - ½ frozen banana
3 - 4 ice cubes
1/2 cup natural coconut water
1/2 cup almond milk or another favourite milk
1/2 cup water
2 tb 100% organic peanut butter (choose organic because of the high pesticide content of regular peanuts) or another preferred nut butter
2 tsp ground flax and/or chia seed
When the ingredients above are completely blended, add:
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder*
1 tsp. glutamine (optional)
Blend for the minimum time needed to mix the powder in. Blending too much will destroy the integrity of the protein.
Pour into a glass and enjoy.
