[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.
