Breakfast Protein Shake

I secretly love when my bananas start to go bad. I take that as a sign that it’s time to freeze those babies. Sometimes I bake with frozen bananas but I really like to use them in smoothies.

I actually picked up a really strange bunch of bananas the other day. They were green at first, but then stayed green and started to brown. They kinda just weirded me out so I decided to freeze them. When in doubt? Freeze ’em!

One of my favorite protein shakes includes a necessary ingredient in the morning: coffee! I love coffee because..well, it’s coffee. But I really like the flavor and smell of coffee too so including it in anything whether that’s a smoothie or ice cream is always a good thing.

Chocolate Covered Coffee Banana (Protein) Smoothie

  • half a frozen banana
  • 1 cup of coffee, chilled- When I’m at home I use instant coffee.
  • 1/2 cup milk-I used nonfat
  • sprinkle of Splenda or sweetener of your choice.
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • You could also add ice, peanut butter, or oats.

I add a tiny bit of Splenda to this shake just because sometimes I add a little too much coffee (if that’s possible) so it helps cut down the bitterness.

I love this smoothie, it’s so good!
