Raw Vegan Recipe: Frozen Organic Banana Protein Shake

by Kristen Suzanne in banana, hemp protein, hemp seeds

I made this for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve had it about 7 times since, maybe more. I snuck it into the movie 2012 the other night – what an awesome treat for a movie. I gave my husband a sip and he kept drinking it and drinking it (chugging may be more like it)… until he got a brain freeze… that’s when he finally gave it back to me.

All I can say is… yum. It’s filling. It’s satiating, almost like a dessert, yet not overly sweet, making it great for any time of the day. It’s nutritious. It’s fun. It’s simple.

Frozen Organic Banana Protein Shake
Recipe by Kristen Suzanne of
Yield 1 serving (approximately 3 cups)

3 small-medium frozen bananas, chopped
2 tablespoons gently heaping hemp seeds
1 tablespoon raw carob

Blend everything until smooth and enjoy your frosty treat.

~ You could replace the raw carob with raw chocolate
~ Some of the times I made this, I added 2 tablespoons of raw almond butter to make it even richer ;)
~ Adding cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice for a little extra flare results in good times
~ If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can use ice and fresh bananas
~ Add chia seeds for even more omegas, although the hemp’s got you covered
