Cinnamon Banana Protein Shake – Raw Vegan Recipe

I wrote about why protein powders have a place in my raw diet here. But, in the post I wrote that I generally don’t use the protein powders in shakes or smoothies blended with other ingredients (unless it’s hemp protein powder, I prefer that in a shake or smoothie). Traditionally when I consume Sun Warrior’s chocolate protein powder, I do so with water (and sometimes an extract or seasoning as mentioned in the post).

Today, however, I’m sharing a recipe with you where I blend Sun Warrior chocolate protein in a shake with cinnamon and banana. It’s fun and delish! I’ve been making it all week, and last night I made it as dessert for mom, Greg, and myself. I facebooked it last week and a couple of people tried it and reported the same results: YUM!

Here it is if you can’t see it from the writing in the picture.
