Banana cinnamon protein shake

[editied! oops forgot the whey protein in the recipe, see below]

While I was looking around online for some new smoothie and protein shake recipes, I found a link to Hugh Jackman’s wolverine workout routine and diet. Contained in the article was a protein shake that had banana, crushed cashews and cinnamon. I adapted it a bit, added a little bit of greek yogurt, and was very pleased with the taste.

So without any further delay, I present you with the rough recipe

Banana Cinnamon Protein Shake

  • Small handful of cashews. Crush the cashews with a mortar and pestle or blender until they have an almost powdered consistency like the above picture.
  • 1/4 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cup of skim milk
  • 1 Banana
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein
  • Generous dose of cinnamon (to taste)

Mix it all up in a blender and enjoy. The cinnamon really adds a nice touch to the nuttiness of the banana and crushed cashews. I added a few shakes and thought it was too much at first glance, but it turned out really nice.

  1. Thanks for the recipe – I’ve been using a whey protein that has some hemp protein as part of it plus dried blueberries, Ceylon cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, chia seeds, ground cloves
