If you like Pina Coladas...
Anyway, I have been on the search for the perfect protein shake. I've tried several and have learned a few things. First, I hate bananas. Bananas in shakes or smoothies make me gag. So, no recipes with bananas, please!!! Second, I also despise yogurt. My kids eat it every morning for breakfast. My husband eats the Greek kind as a snack everyday. But I cannot choke it down. So, yogurt is out, too. As you can guess, if you've ever done shakes and smoothies, there are not a lot of recipes out there that don't have one of those two ingredients in them.
But then, I discovered a recipe for a Nada Colada Shake. It is really yummy!!!! It came from 101 Protein Shake Recipes.
In a blender combine:
2 scoops protein powder (I use vanilla whey powder)
4 ounces skim milk (you can use water - I like the milk)
1/2 cup orange-pineapple juice
2 Tbsp shredded coconut
4 ice cubes
So, do you have more protein shake recipes to share? Without banana or yogurt? I would love to give them a try!
