I read that Americans eats 27 pounds of bananas every year. Are you bananas?! So the odds of you liking is recipe are quite likely. Most of us know that bananas are a great source of potassium and fiber. However, bananas also have tryptophan, an amino acid that helps our body produce serotonin, which has a positive effect on your mood!
This recipe includes protein powder but even without it there are so many amino acid (protein) sources included. I always use Sun Warrior Natural protein powder in my protein shakes. However feel free to use your favorite one. You can enjoy this for breakfast, a post-workout meal or a snack. Listen to your body and determine the best time. Personally, I’ve had my Banana-Nut Protein Smoothie on all the above aforementioned times of day. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did : )
- 2 cups of Cashew Milk (or other non-dairy milk)
- 1 scoop protein powder (I used Sun Warrior)
- 6 Ice cubes
- ½ cup oats
- ¼ cup walnuts
- 1-2 medium bananas
- 2-4 dates (for sweetness)
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 2 hemp seeds
- 1 tsp bee pollen
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Blend all of the ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
