Mean Green (Chocolate Peanut Butter) Protein Shake

Or: HULK SMASH

all i want to do is eat an entire pint of ben & JErry’s is that so bad?? Look at it. it’s lonely.

Sad

So, here’s something you may not know – I’m sort of huge into fitness, particularly endurance races. In early 2012, a dear friend of mine introduced me to an amazing local gym, and then to weight lifting, and I was off to the races (PUNS).  This year I’m training for my 3rd Tough Mudder (August), and joining the Mudder Legion!

ANYWAYS. All of this is to say that, I worked out last night. And it was leg day. And I got home, and was not looking forward to the inevitable clumpy/watered down protein shake. And thought…well, I have these bananas…

IT’S TIME TO REBUILD IT.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 Scoops of Chocolate Protein Powder (I love EAS, but whatever works best for you!)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Creamy Peanut Butter (Because I have a soul – please don’t even bother me with that chunky garbage.)
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 1/2 cups of spinach
  • A tray of ice cubes
DON’T FREAK OUT ABOUT THE SPINACH OKAY?? IT’S NOT AS SCARY AS IT LOOKS.
Bad example...

Bad example.

This should be fairly obvious, but for those of us out there that need the guidance…

I will say this – it looks like a shamrock shake. THIS IS NOT A SHAMROCK SHAKE. And it also doesn’t taste like you’re being force fed spinach, I promiseeee.

Protip: LIQUIFY this bitch. Seriously – the more you get those spinach leaves blended in, the less you’ll even notice that they’re there. IT’S GOOD FOR YOU I SWEAR. Bonus: It tastes like a friggin’ Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and it’s perfectly smooth and refreshing – plus, on top of the protein, you get your little Green Iron boost.
