Protein Shake

This is a new section I have added in the hopes of sharing the health and nutrition knowledge I gain along my personal fitness journey. This protein shake recipe was introduced to me by Josh, and comes from Scooby. No, not this one (although Mr. Doo seems muscle-y, he's NOT REAL).

This is the right one (Scooby Werkstatt):

As you can see, Scooby the human is a pretty fit dude. Know what else? He is in his 50s! You would never guess it--he looks amazing! He has done a lot of research on exercise and nutrition, and looking at the guy, you can't argue that he knows what he is talking about. And he is, quite frankly, just adorbs. Like a panda--really cute, but wouldn't want to make him mad or he might rip your face off. Not saying he would do that, but look at those arms. Just sayin'. Check out his website--he has a lot of great information to share, and he even myth busts diet supplements, exercise equipment (i.e. the bogus Shake Weight), and common workout misconceptions. I'm working on advocating to be his website editor...and you know what, he actually got back to me (unlike the manager from Très Locos who is NOT a celeb!)  Here's the proof:

He's AWESOME. Obviously. Anyways, enjoy! (And don't hate on the ancient blender I used...a new one is on my wish list).

-1 frozen banana (remove peel, then place in a ziploc bag in the freezer)
-1 cup of milk (non-fat or soy is fine, whatever you prefer)
-1-2 scoops whey protein powder, any flavor (# of scoops depends on the recommended serving on the packaging)

1. Break frozen banana into 4 pieces. Add to blender.

2. Pour in the milk.

3. Pour in the whey protein powder. I used chocolate, naturally. I haven't done a ton of research on the best whey protein powder, but this is the first one I ever bought.

4. Blend until well mixed (it shouldn't have any big lumps). Shake will be smooth and creamy.

5. Pour into a glass and enjoy. This makes a great snack in summer, and all year long!

Mmmm...protein shake!
