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 KristensRaw.com
Yield 1 serving (approximately 3 cups)
1 cup filtered water
3 small-medium frozen bananas, chopped
1/4 cup hemp protein powder
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
