Post-workout PB & Banana Smoothie

I made this smoothie for my husband and I when we came home from the gym and didn’t have enough time to make my usual breakfast sandwich.

It’s a great post-workout recovery smoothie or for anyone looking for a meal on-the-go!

I have been experimenting with different protein powders. I have a hard time using protein powders because a lot of them on the market are full of additives, preservatives and/or unsafe artificial sweeteners.

One of my most favorite finds is this Naked Whey. It only contains whey protein concentrate. While whey protein isolate is usually better tolerated for sensitive stomachs, I couldn’t find ANY whey protein powders with ONLY isolate and no soy lecithin. So, having said that, this whey protein concentrate was what I purchased. I’m so happy I did because it doesn’t seem to bother my stomach at all.


 

Look at those ingredients! It’s music to my ears!

 

 

I also received this from someone who didn’t like the flavor and it mixes well in my smoothies. I used it in this recipe: Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein 

 

It has Stevia and Monk fruit extracts in it, which are sweeteners, but considered safe and natural. These are the only 2 sweeteners that I would recommend as an RD.


You can swap for any flavors that you like and still get the same nutrition benefits. Cheers to blood sugar control and gains in the gym!

Recipe Notes
  • If using frozen blueberries this serves as your ice to make it nice and cold.
  • If using fresh fruit, add ice for your preference.
  • You can add 1/2 frozen banana in place of the blueberries. I just like the color and added antioxidants the berries add.
  • Hemp seeds are an optional healthy fat topping.
