Chocolate Banana Soy Protini

2 Jun

What is a “protini” you ask?  It’s a protein shake with a cute little spin on the word.  No, there isn’t any alcohol in any of our protini recipes but hey, if you’re feeling kinda frisky, go for it.  I suggest a touch of rum..

This is my favorite protini to make.  Maybe it’s because bananas are my new favorite ingredient to work with.  I’m not sure I’ve gone a breakfast without it in some form or another for the past two months. The banana makes this drink so creamy and rich.  The end result shockingly tastes like a milkshake from an ice cream shop minus the guilt.

5 Minutes – Makes 1 serving.

1 small banana, sliced and frozen

1/3 cup soy milk

1 serving chocolate protein powder (I use CareOne Whey & Soy Rich Chocolate)

A small handful of ice cubes

1/2 cup of cold water

1.  Throw all the ingredients into a blender (yay for the Magic Bullet) and blend until smooth and creamy.  Thin it out with a little water if necessary.
