Creamy & Dreamy: PB Banana Date Protein Shake
I feel like the ultimate shake is anything with peanut butter in it, agreed? There was a health food cafe at my old school called, Zia’s, that had the best shake and I really wanted to re-create it, because I simply cannot drive 45 minutes every day. I made this shake for my pre-workout meal, because it has healthy fats, protein, and the banana/dates give me the natural sugars and carbs to keep me going through my cycle class. I’m almost positive this recipe is a copy cat version of the one from Zia’s it’s so creamy and really filling. Next time I don’t think ill drink this shake so close to my work out, because the peanut butter and almond milk can be heavy on your stomach. I was supposed to drink it 2 hours before, but I got caught up in homework and instagramming…what is a girl gonna do!
Hope you enjoy!
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 3 dates (chopped)
- 1 medium sized banana (a little browned is easier to blend)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein
- 10 ice cubes
Blend until you get a creamy consistency, add more ice if you feel like it’s not creamy enough.
Clean eating is going well!
GF pasta with loads of veggies, chickpeas, potatoes, butterbeans and spices. Yum!
I want to make some little protein ball thingies to have as a post workout snack. I know I can look online, but I wondered first if anyone had any recipes that they tried and liked?
Felt like a big green juice today… 1/2 lb spinach, 1 large bunch of kale, 2 handfuls of parsley, 2 celery stalks, 1 cucumber, 1 lemon, 1 pineapple, & a bit of ginger! Sweet & full of nutrients!
