Brain Freeze-Inducing banana Protein Shake (vegetarian)

This is my all time favourite post-workout meal, a deliciously cold and filling vegetarian protein shake.

During hard lockdown last year, I decided to finally start strength training. I have dumbbells that have been gathering dust in my cupboard, and I figured that hard lockdown was the best time to take up exercising and keep myself from going crazy.

As a result, I had to up my protein intake after a workout. I am a pesceterian and I have always been concerned about getting enough protein every day, and now I needed even more.

Hello soy protein powder! I use this brand, and not only is it the cheapest powder I have found, it also has the most protein per 10g serving (8,4g per 10 g).

I started experimenting with different flavours, and every now and then, I come up with a winner. (Mostly by accident).

fast forward to this morning

This concoction will definitely become a favourite of mine.
Last week while I was grocery shopping, I bought a 2kg pack of bananas that were on special. Now, I definitely was not going to get though 2kg of bananas before they became so ripe they would be perfect for home made banana bread.

P.S, here is my home made banana recipe. It is fantastic and you should definitely try it!

I then decided to slice them all up and freeze them for an occasion just like this! I also had some guava juice in the fridge, something I never buy. So why did I have it now? Because I was in a hurry and grabbed it instead of the grapefruit juice that I really wanted.

I wasn’t going to let it go to waste, so I decided to experiment. This smoothie ended up being so refreshingly cold and sweet, it was the perfect post-workout drink.
