Recipe: Banana Protein Shake

Sick of paying for health store protein powder?! Well, you’ll be surprised to know that skim milk powder is actually a great alternative! You do have to use double the amount, but at a fraction of the cost, it’s worth it. Plus, our shake will also provide you with those carbohydrates all-important for recovery!

Beyond that, this is also a great way to boost your calcium intake if you’re a banana fan! Our recipe provides around 60% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of calcium for men and women between 19 and 50.

So it’s cheaper, it’s higher in nutrients AND it contains carbohydrates as well… What more could you want?
