Ok, so here's the back story: I love Starbucks Vivianno protein smoothies as a way to refuel post workout.
I love them when I can actually get them that is.
You see, I've has quite a few instances in the last few week's where my regular (and formerly reliable) coffee house was out of either the bananas or the protein. Ack! Once or twice I can understand but this is becoming a far too regular occurrence for "I need fuel in my belly right now!" Sam to deal with.
You know it's a out of hand when you've gone so far as to supply your own banana.
So what's a girl to do? When you can't count on someone else you pull up your big girl pants and get it done yourself, that's what!
Introducing the "better than Starbucks because at least its in stock and it tastes just as great and isn't as expensive" post workout smoothie (I should totally work in marketing huh??)
What you need:
1 cup milk (cow's, soy, almond)
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2/3 scoop unflavored protein powder
1 tsp instant coffee
Blend everything up in a blender and serve.
Easy and reliable? No that's more like it!
So tell me, do you create any coffee house recipes at home?
