Banana Cream Protein Shake


Keeping variety in protein shakes is SO important and yet SUPER hard.

If you are on your pre-surgical diet for bariatric surgery or you’re on your post-surgery liquid diet…hang in there.

It does get better! I know the sweet drinks are exhausting and you need something new. My best encouragement is to search around on this site (and others) for ideas to get your wheels turning. Flavoring extracts can make an ordinary shake totally different with just a splash of something new.

For this recipe, it’s adding a splash of banana to a vanilla shake. You can also do this with strawberry extract…make a big difference!
