Simple banana protein shake

This simple banana protein shake is a delicious, healthy way to refuel your body after a hard workout. It’s also ideal when you need a quick, nutritious breakfast on the run.

Smoothies and shakes can be a very convenient way to quickly and easily replenish the protein your muscles need to grow and repair.

This is my basic ‘go-to’ protein shake, and I’ve added a couple of simple suggestions for optional extras. 

A simple banana protein shake to replenish your body after a hard workout

If you’re like me and sometimes you need the act of chewing solid food to completely satisfy your hunger, then grab a handful of nuts or a boiled egg to eat with your shake.

There are so many ways to change the flavour and add extra nutrients, it’s really up to you to experiment.

You know I like to keep things simple, so try these ideas:

  • a teaspoon of chia seeds
  • a teaspoon of cacao powder
  • other fruit like berries, mango or peach
  • a teaspoon of flax seed
  • add a bit of crunch with nuts or seeds
  • a teaspoon of acai powder or maca powder
