I tend to workout very early in the morning or late in the evening, and I often find myself feeling incredibly hungry afterward but do not want to undo any progress that I have made (tempting though as it may be). I want a nice simple protein shake that gives me exactly what I need post-workout.
There is no shortage of protein shake recipes out there, especially vegan ones so I will show you a very simple recipe that I use that is completely open to variations and whatever additions you may want to add.
- 1 Organic Banana
- 2 Heaping Tbsp of Organic Peanut Butter
- 1 Cup of Almond Milk (coconut, soy, rice)
There’s just one: Blend!
This all comes down to preferred taste and texture. If you use a large banana you’ll get more of that banana taste, same goes for the peanut butter, and the amount of non-dairy milk will factor into the consistency. Feel free to experiment and find what works for you best.
Some additions I have used include:
- Milled Flax Seed
- Vega-One™ Nutritional Shake Powder
- Cranberries, Blueberries, Strawberries
There are plenty of other additions you can add, so be creative and enjoy.
