Homemade Protein Shakes…Banana and Papaya…

Papaya and Banana Protein Shake.

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.

Liquids:-

Almond milk, Coconut milk or water or Soya milk… It is important to get the right balance not what liquid you choose.

Proteins:-

Greek yoghurt, Silken tofu, nut butter i.e raw cashews ( which) require soaking overnight to soften.

Extra proteins:-

Chia seeds, hemp hearts, ground flax or whole oats.

Oats

Papaya and Banana Protein Shake.

 

Ingredients:

  • 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)

 

Let’s, Blitz.
