  • 1 frozen banana in chunks
  • 1 scoop (25g) protein powder (I used Nuzest vanilla)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or scraped vanilla bean
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds or flaxseed (optional)
  • handful ice cubes


  • Add all ingredients into your blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Give the shake a taste and add additional ingredients if needed for your desired texture. Pour into a cup and enjoy!


  • Vanilla extract: If you're using vanilla protein powder, you may not need to add the vanilla extract. 
  • Sub for banana: replace with 1 cup ice, 1 cup of frozen milk cubes or 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower rice.
