Easy Protein Shake

I’ve been on the hunt for fast protein sources lately.  With my gigantic 8 month old still nursing and my seeming inability to pay attention to my own health during our recent move, I’ve come into some health problems.  A friend of mine reminded me that “protein protein protein” will solve the majority of my problems.  After a big face palm and a “duh,” I got to work.  The following is a recipe for a shake with 21g of protein (yes, 21!!!):

  • 2 Tbsp of peanut butter
  • 8 oz of whole milk (or more to taste)
  • 1 Carnation Breakfast Essentials packet in Milk Chocolate
  • 1 banana
  • Blend until smooth and enjoy!
