Chocolate Banana Breakfast Smoothie

How many times have you woken up starving for no particular reason? You don’t want to grab a muffin or some other doughy ball of fat and sugar because you’ll just be hungry again an hour later. You also don’t have time for a real breakfast full of proteins and other things of that nature. So you go to work hungry and run out the clock until you reach a time where it’s socially acceptable to eat your lunch.

Here’s a simple idea. Make a breakfast smoothie. They’re quick and easy to make, and if you stock up on whey protein ahead of time, you can make a protein packed breakfast that will keep you energized until lunch time.

Here’s an easy recipe:

- 2 Table Spoons Vanilla Yogurt
- 1 Cup Chocolate Milk
- 1 Banana
- 2 Table Spoons Chocolate Whey Protein (optional)
- 1 Cup Crushed Ice

Just mix all the ingredients in a blender and you’re good to go. If you have a travel container then you can take the shake with you and save some for later. Smoothies are great because if you stock up on a few key ingredients like yogurt, milk, and fruit, you can make pretty much any combo you like.

Make it happen.

i like a similar combo, but with chocolate carnation instant breakfast powder instead of the whey protein. good for a post workout treat as well.
