Allow me to change your life…just a lil bit. Now this shake CAN be a meal replacement, and depending on how thick you like your shake, you can add more ice which will in turn create more volume without additional calories.
You’ll need the following:
1 ripe banana
1 cup Silk Coconut Milk
1 Jiff to Go Cup (LOVE THIS!!!)
1 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein (I use the EAS brand)
4 ice cubes
Cut your banana up into 4-5 pieces and drop em in the blender. Add all other ingredients, except the ice, and blend to smooth. Once smooth, add the ice and blend again until smooth. Makes 2 cups, which if you’re like me…was really one serving. I’m giving you the nutritional info for both one cup and two. As you will note, the 2 cup serving can be HEFTY. Most of the calories come from the PB and the scoop of whey. SO, my advice to you, as tasty as this thing is (and believe me, it is TASTY), please try to use this shake as a post workout protein boost, which is what I did after my 6 mile run today.

UPDATE: To make your shake last a lil longer and to divy up the calories a bit…add more ice. I doubled the ice cubes and got about 2.5 cups of shake. Also, I’m sure if you used frozen bananas you could make the shake thicker, which would in turn make you drink less of it at once. Space those calories out! Don’t go spending them all in one place 😉
