Coach’s Nutty Nanner Protein Shake

Since I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal (even though I eat it all the time because it’s so good for you), I decided to start adding it to my protein shakes. Here’s a meal replacement shake I made today – and BOY is it good!!

Fat Free Milk or Water
2 Scoops Designer Whey Vanilla Praline Protein Powder
1/8 cup Coach’s Oats
1 tsp Peanut Butter
1/2 Banana
Stevia (to taste)
Ice

527 calories, 52gms of protein with milk
427 calories, 42gms of protein with water

The Coach’s Oats, along with the taste of Peanut Butter, gave it an extra nutty flavor and texture. Very yummy!!  The fat from the peanut butter and whole grain oats slow digestion so I will not only feel full longer, but I’ll absorb more of the protein. Enjoy! :)

  1. Just made this, but with chocolate protein powder and it was yummy! I could only drink half of it though. Would this be good for post workout?

    • Not really – it would be a better meal replacement or night time shake. A post workout shake should not have a lot of complex carbs or fat in them. Instead, you want simple sugars (honey, orange juice or other sugary based ingredients) and protein. the sugar aids in fast absorption. Normally, you want slow absorption, but after a workout you only have a 30-40 minute window where your body is more receptive to absorbing protein so you want to get it in to your system quickly. :)
