Go Bananas Banilla Protein Shake

I woke up this morning to a refreshing start.

6:20 am: Wake up and eat a piece of toast with almond butter

6:30 P90x Ab ripper

6:45 post workout shake and make lunch

7:10 Get Ready for School

8:20 Off to School 

I know it seems pretty crazy to wake up at 6:20, but for a doddler such as myself every precious minute is needed in the morning.  The post Workout drink I made my this morning is so delish anybody would go bananas for it.

Ingredients:

1 medium ripe banana

1 cup of light soy, almond or rice milk

1/3 cup of 0% plain Greek yogurt

 1 Tbsp of clear vanilla extract (can also use dark)

1 Vanilla Bean 

2 tsp of chia seeds (optional) 

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use whey but plant based works just perfectly too)

Agave to taste

Ice cubes to desired thickness

Directions:

Add in everything in blender, leaving protein powder for last 

Blend & enjoy :)

Note: Want to make this shake more of a treat? Replace the greek yogurt with 1 scoop of low fat frozen yogurt. I use President’s Choice Blue Menu brand and it tastes almost identical to Breyers Ice cream. This treat is perfect as an afternoon snack.
