Now for those who exercise quite hard and take or think you should take protein drinks then how about making your own?
I know many people who exercise who take these… So I thought I would do a little research and make my own… Cost wise it is a no-brainer against the cost of
some most Protein powders.
The protein shake is 3/4 cup of liquid and 1/3 cup of your main protein…
This is the third protein shake I have made and today I have used Papaya and Banana.
Below are what you can use to make your own protein shakes and in all honesty, they taste really nice although having never, ever used powders and the like I can’t really compare taste except to say I have been told the tastes are not always great and those who know me know I don’t do manufactured stuff…I prefer to know what is in my food.
Almond milk, Coconut milk or water or Soya milk… It is important to get the right balance not what liquid you choose.
Greek yoghurt, Silken tofu, nut butter i.e raw cashews ( which) require soaking overnight to soften.
Chia seeds, hemp hearts, ground flax or whole oats.
Papaya and Banana Protein Shake.
- 1 1/2 cups of frozen Papaya
- 1 small banana sliced and frozen
- 1-2 tsp fresh ginger grated
- 1/2 limes…1/4 cup or 60ml
- A piece of carrot sliced
- 1/3 cup of Greek yoghurt
- 3/4 cup coconut water
- 1 tsp chia seeds ( optional)
Put all the ingredients into blender and blitz …Taste and add more lime if required.

About Carol Taylor
Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.
I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.
Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.
The environment is also something I am passionate about and there are now regular columns on my blog this year. It is important that we are mindful of the world we live in…
Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!
Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all have a creative week ahead xx
