Recipe type: Drink
Serves: 1 Shake
Ingredients
  • 1 banana (sliced and frozen)
  • 1 tsp. nut-free butter (I used Wowbutter)
  • 2 Tbsp. protein powder (preferably Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro)
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds
  • 1-1/2 cups coconut milk
Instructions
  1. Add first three ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into glass and top with a sprinkle of chia seeds and a banana slice.
Notes
I use Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro 50 protein powder, but any brand will work. Chocolate- or vanilla-flavored powders both add an extra bit of sweetness to the drink.

There are quite a few alternatives to nut butter out there. Here is a list of five that would work pretty well with this recipe.

If you’re allergic to coconuts, try soy milk or rice milk instead. Keep in mind, though, that their consistency varies, so you might need to adjust the amount of solid ingredients to compensate, or just add water if it’s too thick.
