Clean Eats Recipe :: Choco-Nana-Berry Power Protein Shake

It's super easy to throw some fruit, whether frozen or fresh into a blender, add a little milk, some protein powder and off you go, right? Well, NOT always! Some concoctions just come out wrong! Here's one of my favorites for a recovery shake right after a hard workout at the gym!

6 ounces of 1% Organic Milk (may substitute Unsweetened Almond Milk)
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
1/2 of a small banana or 1/3 of a large banana
5 medium-sized strawberries, washed and tops removed
2/3 - 1 cup of ice cubes (depending on your preference for shake thickness)

Blend together using a blender and enjoy!

Makes 1 Serving

He & She Tip - If you like the taste of cinnamon and chocolate or cinnamon and cayenne pepper together, you can add 1/4 teaspoon to rev up your metabolism!

  1. There are so many protein powders out there. Do you recommend any in particular? How do you know which are good and which are bad? Some have such a long ingredient list that I am worried they aren't healthy.

  3. When is the best time to have a protein shake? Pre or post workout? Is this okay to have for breakfast each morning if you are working out in the morning?
